Why American Elderberries?
We have determined there are vast differences between our American elderberry, Sambucus canadensis and its European counterpart, Sambucus nigra.
Differences in growing habits and aroma are a few, but the main difference being the American does not contain the precursors of cyanide. This allows us to keep the most integrity of the berry intact because we can consume them without having to boil them in the processing.
There are many studies being done on the differences, the University of Missouri Extension has quite a few articles available. All of our products are made with Sambucus canadensis elderberries.

Nature's Medicine Chest
Elderberries have been recommended for their health benefits throughout history.
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, called elderberries “Nature’s Medicine Chest for the common people,” and from that point forward, it is noted in herbals and pharmacopia.
