A true “super fruit”, cranberries have lots of antioxidants, which are thought to help fight aging and cancer by mopping up free radical oxygen in your blood. Phenolic acids, anthocyanin, and flavonoids are all present in significant quantities.
Though the drying process causes some of the vitamin C and potassium, amongst other vitamins and minerals, to be lost, there are still a good source of them. Manganese remains in fairly high quantities. Their rich flavour and fantastic colour (a result of the anthocyanin ), means they are a really good additions to cakes, muesli and sauces, or just eaten as it is.
