Wild plants extract nutrients from the soil and concentrate them in various parts of their anatomy to survive times of harsh weather and scarcity. Spruce tips are one such example and are the tender young shoots that will become full-sized branches. In essence, eating spruce tips is snacking on a condensed adult spruce branch.
At the Canadian Pine Pollen Co., we sustainably wild-harvest spruce tips in Western Canada's pristine forests. After harvest, we freeze-dry the spruce tips to maintain their freshness and nutrient profile - most notably high levels of Vitamin C. Our spruce tips are also rich in potassium, magnesium, chlorophyll, and other phytonutrients.
