Unlike some over-dehydrated and hard dried cranberries, Tierra Farms’ Organic Dried Cranberries are wonderfully moist and chewy. In ¼ cup you get 2 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein, and only 120 calories. Tierra Farms lightly sweetens their dried cranberries with organic apple juice and add a light coating of organic sunflower oil to keep them from clumping so you can easily eat them right from the bag or add them to your meals.
As a general rule, the greater the proportion of skin to interior fruit, the higher the antioxidant ability. This means cranberries are high in antioxidants because they’re small.
We generate free radicals in our bodies just by carrying out basic metabolic functions. And our environment is teaming with them in the form of pollution, cigarette smoke, certain foods and chemicals. Antioxidants are the foot soldiers in the battle to disarm these free radicals. They neutralize them by giving up an electron which minimizes their threat to our good health. This is why we encourage everyone to eat foods loaded with antioxidants.
Most fruit is sprayed with chemicals to prevent pests and mold. When this fruit is dried, the chemicals are concentrated. This is why we like Tierra Farm’s organic dried fruit. They don’t use pesticides and chemicals so you can be assured your dried fruit is full of terrific nutrients and great flavor and nothing you don’t want.
