Berries generally appear as small, round clusters of edible fruit that have many seeds, bright colors, and tangy, juicy flesh. Blueberries, raspberries, açai berries, goji berries, red currants, and many other types of berries are used as garnishes and to make desserts, jams, and syrups. Rich in anthocyanins, these excellent sources of antioxidants consistently rank high on so-called superfoods lists. Berries are also one natural food most frequently associated with the emerging keyword “well-aging.” Since the mid-aughts, berries have reigned supreme alongside root vegetables and herbs as emblematic Nordic ingredients thanks to the New Nordic Food movement, which advocates a seasonal food culture focusing on wild, local produce.

There are countless varieties of berries, and they come in various colors and shapes. The fruits are often the main attraction in desserts and drinks, and berries are known to be healthy as they’re packed with nutrients. Most people have a positive image of berries. In addition, as wild food foraging drew attention in Northern Europe in the mid-aughts, wild berries became a symbol of the creativity behind the New Nordic Food movement.
