Today, raspberries rank high on the list of the world’s most popular berries. With their rich colour, sweet juicy taste, and antioxidant power, it’s no wonder raspberries remain one of the world’s most consumed berries. Wonderfully delicious, bright red raspberries are rich sources of health-promoting plant-derived chemicals, minerals and vitamins.
The diversity of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients in raspberries is truly remarkable. The vast majority of these phytonutrients are provided in amounts that are significant in terms of protecting us against the dangers of oxidative stress and excessive inflammation. The phytonutrients in raspberries help lower our risk of chronic diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and atherosclerosis. And, recent research on organic raspberries has now shown organic raspberries to be significantly higher in total antioxidant capacity than non-organic raspberries.
Eating one cup of raw raspberries will provide 54 percent of your vitamin C, 12 percent of vitamin K, 6 percent of folate, 5 percent of vitamin E, iron, and potassium, and 41 percent of manganese needs for the day as well as lesser amounts of thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, and copper.
Coming in 2019
Nothing can compare to the first sweet taste of a fresh strawberry, and our organic berries are chock-a-block with flavour. Few fruits can match the joy of fresh, sweet strawberries in season.
Strawberries are coveted for both their taste and texture, but they are also nutritional powerhouses that can complement a healthy diet. Strawberries are a nutrient dense, low-calorie selection and an excellent source of vitamin C. Strawberries may offer significant health benefits, and trading strawberries for candies and other sweets can add up over time to help you lose weight. Additionally, strawberries are an excellent source of folate; they can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease; they’re a great source of fibre; and they’re high in antioxidants.
