Raspberries

Raspberries

A member of the rose family, raspberries have a wonderfully intense, sweet taste, and many consider them to be the finest flavoured of all the berries. This is why we use fresh raspberries in our Berry Burst Brownie and also due to the natural sweetness of the berries, it means we just throw them in and leave it to bake to perfection :)

 

One cup of raspberries supplies more than 40 percent of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C and manganese, and one-third of the fibre you require every day. In fact, raspberries provide more fibre than any other fresh fruit.

Raspberries and other berry fruits contain dozens of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds that may protect against several types of cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

Eating berry fruit, including raspberries, help’s to protect against neurodegenerative diseases that often accompany ageing.

Raspberry leaves and their extracts contain astringent tannins, as well as antiviral and antibacterial compounds. Tea brewed from dried young raspberry leaves makes a mild and tasty addition to homemade tea mixtures.
