Keywords:rose hip fruit, food principles, low caloric value, carbohydrates
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is an important component in the fruits of dog rose. Its slightly laxative and diuretic effect, for which the dog rose is used in folk medicine, is supposed to be due to its content rich in pectin and organic acids. The investigated material were the fruits of Rosa canina L collected from 42 biotypes marked on the route: Suceava – Pătrăuţi – Lunca Sucevei (Dărmăneşti) - Costâna - Părhăuţi - Todireşti - Cajvana - Arbore - Solca - Clit - Marginea -Rădăuţi – Suceviţa – Palma during 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 years. The quantitative values of rainfalls influenced the content in vitamin C and the humidity of the fruits. The content in vitamin C increased with the increase in humidity and with the decease in temperature.
