Cherries are full of polyphenols which are antioxidant powerhouses. 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.
Tierra Farms’ Organic Dried Tart Cherries are just that: dried and tart. They’re not as moist as the Dried Bing Cherries but they have a great tart flavor that make them perfect to add to spinach salads or hot cereal. Tierra Farms adds a little organic sunflower oil to keep them the dried tart cherries from sticking together so it’s easy to add these yummy little mouth puckers to anything you want.

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.
