What is rosehip? Rosehip seed extract, also known as rose haw, is a fleshy fruit developed from the receptacle of a rose flower after it has withered. Rosehip is extremely rich in vitamin C, earning it the title of “King of Vitamin C.” Tests have shown that the vitamin C content in every 100 grams of fresh edible portion of rosehip is above 6810 milligrams, reaching as high as 8300 milligrams, and so forth. Consequently, 1 gram of rosehip contains the equivalent amount of vitamin C found in 1 kilogram of apples. In addition to vitamin C, rosehip is also abundant in polyphenols. Due to its high nutritional value, many countries consume it as a daily fruit. Rosehip can also be processed into jams, pastries, and even wine. In the modern food industry, necessary substances can be extracted from rosehip. In China, rosehip seed extract is listed in GB2760 as a natural flavoring agent used in food additives.

Polyphenols in rosehip

Rosehip contains various nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols. Among them, a particularly special substance has caught the attention of scientists – Tiliroside, which has strong free radical scavenging activity. Furthermore, it is a non-competitive inhibitor of α-amylase, which can inhibit carbohydrate digestion and glucose absorption. It can be applied in blood sugar control and weight management. Studies have also shown that Tiliroside can effectively regulate energy metabolism and fat levels in the body, thereby better managing weight.
