About This Food

Description

Mulberries are small, long fruits packed with health benefits. They are full of anthocyanins and antioxidants that help fight against cancer, diabetes, inflammation, bacterial infections, and aging and neurological diseases. One of the key antioxidants, resveratrol, specifically helps lower the risk for strokes.

Mulberries are an excellent source for vitamin C, vitamin K and B-Complex group of vitamins. Unlike most other berries, they are rich in iron, which aids in red blood cell health and production. They also contain alkaloids that activate macrophages (white blood cells), and minerals such as potassium, magnesium and manganese, benefiting heart health and the immune system.

Selecting & Storing

Preservation: mulberries ripen and spoil very quickly. They are sweetest when the red turns to a deep purple or black. Store unwashed in a zip-lock bag in the refrigerator until ripe and ready to eat.
