inspo on top. The good news is: in our organic mueslis, berries are in season
all year round! The Tiroler Biomanufaktur uses only the finest of berries,

Summer in a bowl: add fresh strawberries to your muesli
Strawberries are 90% water
but still 100% summer, right? Everyone – from smaller to bigger berry fans –
loves the red flavourful berry. Since they are very sensitive when touching
them, we recommend rinsing them quickly and carefully and then store them in
the fridge. Pureed to a fruit puree, they can also be wonderfully frozen and
stirred under muesli.
Are in season: June – September
Nutrients: Strawberries support your immune system with
a high vitamin C content and also contain cancer-preventing secondary plant
substances. Folic acid, iron, magnesium and potassium are also found in this
Taste best: pure, with honey or agave syrup, in a cool
Greek yoghurt, cut into a crunchy mix, as a colourful add on to oats or mixed
with whipped cream into a muesli shake
The queen of the berries is
exactly that – a queen, which is why raspberries are best consumed fresh from
the bush or the box. You won’t be able to resist their tempting smell, anyways.
Raspberries are very sensitive to pressure so clean them by putting them into a
sink full of water and dab dry with kitchen paper.
Are in season: June – October
Nutrients: Raspberries are rich in vitamin A, B &
C as well as calcium and iron. The many small seeds also support your
digestion. The antioxidants help detoxify the body and protect against skin ageing.
Taste best: with Chia pudding, mixed with buttermilk, as
a topping on vanilla ice cream or cheesecake, mixed into porridge, served with
yoghurt, in Overnight Oats
The queen of berries is every breakfastlovers best friend
The tannin-rich blue-black
berries were already appreciated by Hildegard von Bingen for their healthy
effect on the digestion. If you don’t want to look for blueberries in the
forest yourself, just visit your favorite fruit stand. One may also find the
juicy blueberry frequently under the name “Moosbeere”. In Tyrol, nocks with
“Mossbeeren” are a traditional and very popular summer pastry.
Are in season: July – Middle of September

blueberries can help prevent skin ageing. They are also supported by the

Dark purple with a soft
shimmer – that’s how blackberries like to distinguish themselves from their
red, blue and pink colleagues. And their taste is unique, as well. Blackberries
are both sweet and tangy which serves as a much-needed kick on hot summer days.
By the way, the wild blackberry is quite stubborn and is difficult to get rid
of once you have it in the garden.
Are in season: from the middle of July to the middle of
Nutrients: Like blueberries, blackberries are rich in
anthocyanins, which have a detoxifying effect and prevent skin ageing. The high
iron and copper content can also lead to a particularly good supply of oxygen.
Taste best: as an eye catcher in trifles, mixed into a
porridge, as add-on to desert creams and fruit purees, as a frozen topping for
a cold & hot porridge sensation, served with breakfast muffins
Eating something sour makes you happy – also early in the morning.
Currents come in a lot of
shapes and colours. Whether small and red, white and big or black and tiny –

makes you happy, currants are perfect for breakfast, too!
Are in season: from the middle of June – August
Nutrients: Currants contain three times as much vitamin
C as the same amount of lemons. Like many other berries, they are rich in antioxidants,
which is why they are said to have an anti-ageing effect and good cell
Taste best: in desert creams or puddings, with fresh
waffles, as a sour contrast to a sweet Chocolate Crunchy, mixed into a bowl of
fresh berries, with yoghurt and heritage grains, or even in a smoothie
