Not as sweet but just as tasty!

Our popular Biotta Elderberry has adapted to the spirit of the times and now contains less natural fruit sugar (fructose) and therefore fewer calories, but still has the same great taste.

  • 20% fewer calories

  • 20% less fruit sugar

We use a par­tic­u­larly high-qual­ity and in­tensely flavoured el­der­berry va­ri­ety called Haschberg for Biotta El­der­berry. At sum­mer’s end the black berries are har­vested by hand. They are then pressed in our Lake Con­stance fac­tory to pro­duce a nat­ural juice with no ar­ti­fi­cial ad­di­tives or added sugar. Our gen­tle pro­duc­tion meth­ods mean the juice has a de­li­cious and mildly fruity taste.

Sugar re­duc­tion pro­ject 

For some time now, we have been ad­just­ing the calo­rie and nat­ural fruc­tose con­tent of our juice recipes. Al­though the nat­ural sugar in fruit and veg­eta­bles is not the same as nor­mal gran­u­lated sugar, our con­sumers are in­creas­ingly con­scious of the role of sugar in their di­ets. Biotta has recog­nised this and is mak­ing ap­pro­pri­ate changes as a re­sult. In this way, we can en­sure that our pop­u­lar clas­sics con­tinue to ap­peal to con­sumers, both in terms of taste and nu­tri­tional value.

Our bod­ies can process the nat­ural fruc­tose from fruit and veg­eta­bles bet­ter than gran­u­lated sugar or ar­ti­fi­cial fruc­tose. This is be­cause of the phy­tonu­tri­ents and di­etary fi­bre that fruit and fruit juices con­tain. Ar­ti­fi­cial fruc­tose in par­tic­u­lar, which is of­ten made from ge­net­i­cally mod­i­fied maize, is un­healthy and can­not be com­pared with nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring fruc­tose. Soft drinks, yo­ghurts and break­fast ce­re­als fre­quently con­tain large quan­ti­ties of ar­ti­fi­cial fruc­tose. We al­ways process the whole fruit or veg­etable for our juice, so you ben­e­fit from nu­mer­ous vi­t­a­mins and nu­tri­ents.
