The fruits of blackthorn (Prunus spinosa L.), hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna), rosehip (Rosa canina) are commonly used in food industry and phytotherapy. The aim of the paper was to obtain a functional product valorisation fruits from spontaneous flora of Romania, richs in biologically active principles with high availability for the human body. The contents of phenols, antioxidative activity in extracts of blackthorn, hawthorn, rosehip fruit and spreads from fruits were determined using spectrophotometric methods. Physicochemical methods have been used to determine moisture, acidity, vitamin C and mineral substances. In order to obtain a product that could be used as a dressing for food industry, a classical technological process was used, resulting in a nutritionally complex product with multiple therapeutic effects.
