Lemon of the North

The vitamin content of the sea buckthorn berry is unmatched amongst the local fruits which led to its nick name “Lemon of the North”.

Thanks to innovative fruit mixtures, Lienig has made sea buckthorn available to new consumer groups. Among other things, this was made possible through fruit juices from sea buckthorn, produced at the company’s own laboratory. These juices show a stable turbidity which prevents the usual optically negative precipitations of the pulp. Sea buckthorn is a "sleeping giant just waiting to be discovered by the branded products industry".

This is what makes the Lienig sea buckthorn products so special:

Controlled cultivation compliant with the Council Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 on organic production of agricultural products
The only juice with plant oil
