Nutritional Content & Health Benefits
One cup of raspberries only has 64 calories but provides more than half of the RDI for vitamin C, which is crucial for immune function and iron absorption. These red fruits are also potent antioxidants that could help to reduce the risk of diseases. An interesting study highlighted that diabetic mice which were fed freeze-dried raspberries showed much fewer signs of inflammation and oxidative stress compared to the control group. Raspberries can hence aid weight loss, decrease signs of aging, and even reduce risks of arthritis. (Luo, T., O. Miranda-Garcia, G. Sasaki, and N. F.
