Cranberry Health Benefits And Nutrition Values


Cranberries are low, creeping shrubs or vines up to 2 metres long and 5 to 20 centimetres (2 to 8 in) in height; they have slender, wiry stems that are not thickly woody and have small leaves. The flowers are dark pink, with very distinct reflexedpetal, leaving the style and stamens fully exposed and pointing forward. They are pollinated by bees. The fruit is a berry that is larger than the leaves of the plant; it is initially white, but turns a deep red when fully ripe. It is edible, with an acidic taste that can overwhelm its sweetness.
Since the early 21st century within the global functional foodindustry, raw cranberries have been marketed as a super fruit due to their nutrient content
