HOW DO YOU STORE ELDERBERRY SYRUP AND HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
There are no preservatives, thickeners, stabilizers, artificial sweeteners or additives of any kind in our elderberry syrup, so it must be refrigerated. We have found that shaking your jar often helps preserve it longer. Our elderberry syrup may last for varying lengths of time but we have discovered 60-90 days is usually minimum. It also freezes well (especially in cubes so you can defrost in small servings as needed) in which it will last for over 1 year.
IS ELDERBERRY SYRUP SAFE DURING PREGNANCY OR WHILE NURSING?
It simply has not been researched conclusively to give a straight answer to this question, so we recommend consulting your healthcare provider before taking any new supplement or medication. (Message from the owner: “Personally, I made the choice to continue the use of elderberry syrup on a daily basis throughout both of my pregnancies and nursing my babies with no adverse affects. Still, I advise you to make your own decision with the help of your professional healthcare provider”).
IS ELDERBERRY SYRUP SAFE FOR KIDS?
Generally, elderberry syrup is safe for children over 1 year of age, but is not recommended for children under 1 year as it contains honey. However, we do offer custom batches upon request of either unsweetened, maple syrup sweetened or any other ingredient you may need left out for any reason. Send us a message regarding custom orders.
HOW IS OUR SYRUP IS DIFFERENT THAN OTHERS ON THE MARKET?
As we’ve mentioned above, we do not add any preservatives, thickeners, stabilizers, artificial sweeteners or additives of any kind. We sweeten our syrup with local raw unfiltered honey rather than the alternative glucose/sugars. Our syrup is also nearly half the cost of store bought syrup, and without all the additives, you get even more bang for your buck. We also create our syrup in small batches that are carefully tended to from start to finish, so you get the best quality every single time!
