cloudberry skin careFound in the sub-Arctic landscapes of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Canada, this berry is a Scandinavian treasure. Related to the rose family, cloudberries or Rubus Chamaemorus are delicate amber-coloured berry which unlike other common black or blueberries, grows on a single stalk and yields only one berry per plant.

We only get a short time to glimpse the cloudberry, flowering in June and ripening into juicy golden fruit by mid-August. Unless you are foraging in the Arctic Circle forests, you are unlikely to experience the slightly honey taste of fresh cloudberries. For those of use not lucky enough to sample these rare little gems, head to IKEA where you can try Cloudberry jam and experience their unique flavour!

  1. Cloudberries are super-rich in vitamin C, containing 3-4 times more than an orange. This high concentration sees cloudberries being traditionally used by the Vikings, Canadian Inuit and Artic explorers as protection against scurvy.
  2. Eating fresh cloudberries can benefit your skin, containing Omega 3 and 6, carotene, Vitamins A, C and E, phytosterols and antioxidants.
  3. Cloudberry contains ellagic acid, which according to the American Cancer Society, has anti-carcinogenic in preliminary lab tests.
  4. Cloudberry leaf tea was used to cure urinary tract infections in ancient Scandinavian herbal medicine. 
  5. Today, cloudberries are still used in treating female-related conditions in natural medicine.
  6. Cloudberries are also high in phosphorus, calcium, magnesium and iron, with the content of these nutrients and minerals surpassing that of most other berries.

  4. Almost all of the cloudberries on the market today come from naturally growing plants as it is very difficult to create the right conditions for commercial cultivation.
  5. In Finland and other Nordic countries, under the concept of Everyman's Right (freedom to roam) berry-picking is a popular pastime that doesn’t need any land-owner’s permission. The law also applies to picking for commercial purposes and coupled with the scarcity and high value of the cloudberry; gatherers keep the locations of patches well-kept secrets. “Cloudberry wars” and territorial arguments are so common that the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs developed a special section devoted to managing these disputes!
