Birch juice

Birch trees absorb large amounts of water from the soil. A single tree drinks up to 300 litres a day. The juice from birch trees tastes good and contains potentially health-enhancing elements. It is also a sustainable resource. Biosynergy are currently researching this potential in a variety of projects.

Birch juice tastes like other types of mineral water, though a little sweeter, thanks to its natural content of fructose, glucose and xylitol. The juice also contains fruit acids, amino acids, vitamin C, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, manganese, zinc, sodium and iron.

Biosynergy have been allowed to tap juice from the forty trees belonging to the island’s 37 inhabitants. This juice is used in a part of our experimental work and development of new products. As birch juice will only keep for around five days in the fridge, we initially froze it down to maximise the time we could use it. This is how the idea of using birch juice in ice-cream was born.

Today, birch juice is a fundamental ingredient in the whole series of Skarø ice-cream, where we exploit its taste enhancing and stabilising effects in sorbet and milk-based ice-cream. With birch juice as a natural taste enhancer, we’ve been able to reduce the volume of added sugar by up to 15%.
