Organic Dried Cranberries are one of the healthiest foods out there, and you can enjoy all their benefits in a significant number of ways. At Food To Live, we make them not freeze dried. This allows us to maximize the nutritional value of the product and ensure you can use it for making a variety of delicious dishes, both sweet and sour.
Organic Dried Cranberries Health Benefits
The benefits of these berries are too many to count. They contain the largest number of antioxidants in their food group, which means that they improve your health in general. Adding a handful of berries to a salad, smoothie, or cereal makes the dish more valuable for your wellbeing.
The best news is that researchers have proved that dry berries are better for you than cranberry vitamins made in a lab. Dry fruits contain a combination of elements that complement and enhance each other’s effects, which creates an incredibly healthful cocktail. Pills based on cranberry extract are devoid of most of these elements and therefore can’t compare to the actual fruit.
Dried Cranberries: Calories and Nutrition
In fact, this would be a great addition to such a meal plan as a cup of dry fruits contains only about 120 calories, but it gives you a boost of essential vitamins and minerals.
The most important nutrients you get from dried cranberries include:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
Due to their high content of dietary fiber, berries are great for metabolism. You can even incorporate them in protein shakes for athletes and bodybuilders. The berries will make those taste better and infuse them with antioxidants. However, the majority of dried berries are sweetened to improve their taste, which brings this number to 26+ grams per cup.
Dried Cranberries from Food To Live are certified organic.
