Nutrient Analysis Report of SVO Berries from 2015's Harvest

Everyone here at Sunset Valley Organic's works very hard to ensure our berries are the highest quality. Part of that is the Nutrient Density, and how we compare to the USDA standards when it comes to minerals and nutrient density. We sent out a whole bunch of samples from our 2015 crop, including blueberries, blackberries, and aronia berries. This is a form of a report card for us, and we are very excited about the results, so much so that we wanted to share with you all.

Samples of Blueberry, Black berry and Aronia Berry powder were sent to a third party for nutrient analysis. The berries in these powders were grown by Sunset Valley Organics/Wilt Farms Inc. The purpose of the analysis is to compare the nutrient density of Sunset Valley Organic’s berries to the USDA Standards.

In all but the protein and blackberry vitamin C comparison, Sunset Valley Organics berry powders exceeded the USDA standards, and many times by several hundred percent.

The second comparison was USDA Blueberry Standard vs. SVO Blueberry, Blackberry, and Aronia Berry. The reason for this comparison is that many people think that blueberries are the standard for nutrition of berries. That being said this comparison shows how SVO’s berries compare to that standard.

Again, with only a couple of exceptions SVO berries show consistently more nutrient density than the USDA Blueberry Standard.
