Mountain Pepper Leaf Powder

Tasmania lanceolata

AUSTRALIAN FREEZE DRIED POWDERS

The Tasmanian Lanceolata species is a perennial shrub native to the woodlands and cool temperate rainforests in the pristine wilderness of Tasmania, the southern island off Australia's mainland.

Belonging to the ancient Gondwanna supercontinent family of plants, Winteraceae.

Its aroma has a warm, exotic bushland herbal note with a pungent heat that develops on the palate.

The NATIVE EXTRACTS water-soluble Cellular Extract of the Tasmanian Pepper Leaf achieves new global benchmarks in antioxidant rating, and its powder is an exciting ingredient of natural, bio-available antioxidants and phyto-compounds.

The Mountain Pepper plant was used in traditional medicine for centuries and represents exciting possibilities for cosmetic, nutriceutical, 'superfood', and food and beverage applications.
