►Cranberries are a member of the heather family and related to blueberries, bilberries, and lingonberries. The most commonly grown species is the North American cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon), but other types are found in nature. Due to their very sharp and sour taste, cranberries are rarely eaten raw.
►Fresh cranberries are nearly 90% water, but the rest is mostly carbs and fiber. Cranberries are primarily made up of carbs and fiber. They also boast several vitamins and minerals. Keep in mind that cranberry juice has almost no fiber.
►The main nutrients in 1 cup (100 grams) of raw, unsweetened cranberries are: Calories: 46, Water: 87%, Protein: 0.4 grams, Carbs: 12.2 grams, Sugar: 4 grams, Fiber: 4.6 grams, Fat: 0.1 grams.
►Cranberries are primarily composed of carbs and fiber. On the other hand, cranberry juice contains virtually no fiber and is usually diluted with other fruit juices - and sweetened with added sugar.
►Cranberries are widely consumed dried, as a juice, or in supplements. They're a good source of a few vitamins and minerals - and exceptionally rich in several unique plant compounds.
- Dried cranberries are made by partially dehydrating fresh cranberries, a process similar to making grapes into raisins.
- They are popular in trail mix, salads, and breads, with cereals or eaten on their own. Dried cranberries are sometimes referred to as craisins due to the name's similarity to raisins.
- Fresh cranberries are packed with antioxidants, and many of those antioxidants are still present after the cranberries are dried. You'll find that eating more cranberries (dried or fresh) will be a great way to get the antioxidants.
- They're most often consumed as juice, which is normally sweetened and blended with other fruit juices. Other cranberry-based products include sauces, dried cranberries, and powders and extracts used in supplements.
- Cranberries are a rich source of several vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin C. Vitamin C: Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is one of the predominant antioxidants in cranberries. It is essential for the maintenance of your skin.
