DEEP RED BERRY WITH HEALTH BENEFITS
In North America it is a classic and also in Europe the cranberry is becoming increasingly popular. Our supplier Ocean Spray® regularly comes up with innovations and new variants, making this healthy berry widely applicable.
Initially the cranberry was mainly used to make juice, but the berry also appeared to be very tasty and nutritious as a sweetened dried fruit.
Cranberries contain fibres, anti-oxidants, minerals and PAC’s, which can help to prevent urinary infection. This fits in well with both healthy food trends and the consumer demand for indulgence.
