If you are looking for a nutrient-packed superfood that is a deliciously sweet treat, look no further than raspberries. Not only are these vibrant little gems a low-calorie snack, but they also provide a medley of health benefits. Raspberries are a type of bramble fruit, which includes blackberries and loganberries. These fruits are packed with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Raspberries contain high levels of vitamin C, folate, manganese, and copper. Vitamin C helps support our immune systems and folate is known for playing an important role in brain development. Manganese and copper are essential for bone-building, and their levels of naturally-occurring antioxidant compounds protect our cells from damage.
It is important to buy raspberries organically due to their delicate and thin skin that takes up pesticides quickly. Furthermore, our organic raspberries are hand picked daily to ensure sweet, juicy berries. The season is just starting so go on-line to www.rumarfarm.ca and check back frequently as new items are added daily.
