HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
Most people know that blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries are naturally abundant in antioxidants, nutrients that can neutralize excess free radicals in the body, thereby offering protection against premature disease. But few seem to realize that blackberries trump all other common berries in antioxidant content! Per 100 gram serving, blueberries contain 2.68 mmoles of antioxidants. Strawberries come in at 3.58 mmoles. And raspberries provide 2.86 mmoles of antioxidants per 100 gram serving. Blackberries come in at an average of 5.75 mmoles per 100 gram serving. That’s more than double the antioxidant content of blueberries and raspberries. (Source: Dr. Ben Kim)
