Our Story

Sansu was founded in London. We make premium Yuzu fruit drinks in England. We are the first company in the world to create a range of fruit drinks using Yuzu as its core ingredient.

Nourished by the sea breeze of the Far East, Yuzu plays a special role in seasonal traditions. Its juice is consumed ice cold in the summer months. Its peel is infused in teas during the long snowy winters.

Yuzu’s scarce production quantity and high costs have limited its usage. However, we hope to make Yuzu more accessible in a ready-to-drink format.

What is yuzu

Yuzu is a small yellow citrus that carries hints of lime, grapefruit and mandarin with floral undertones.

It has three times the Vitamin C of an orange and an abundance of flavonoids that acts as powerful antioxidants.

Yuzu has been highly regarded in the Far East for its medicinal properties for over 1,200 years. The best quality Yuzu grows in small batches on the coasts of Korea & Japan.

HEALTH

A RICH SOURCE OF FLAVONOIDS

Flavonoids are organic compounds recognised for their powerful antioxidant activity in vitro. Like Vitamin C, they are known to reduce cell damage due to oxygen. The beneficial effects of consuming brightly coloured fruits, vegetables and red wine have sometimes been attributed to flavonoids.

There are two particular flavonoids, Hesperetin and Naringenin, whose health benefits have been substantiated by scientific research publications available to the general public. Yuzu is a key source for both.

NARINGENIN

A flavonoid thought to play an important role in promoting carbohydrate
metabolism and modulating the immune system

HESPERETIN

A flavonoid thought to have beneficial effects on skin irritations, blood circulation
and inflammation
