Know Your Superfood: Raspberries
Read more about the origins and benefits of this tart, antioxidant-rich jewel-like fruit.
Raspberries are from the rose family of plants, which includes strawberries and peaches. One of the earliest cultivated berry crops with signs of its first cultivation dating back almost 2000 years ago, raspberries are nutrient-packed, containing antioxidants that aid in cancer prevention and fights anti-aging by having an anti-inflammatory effect on cells. Raspberry has recently gained repute as a potential fat-burner due to the presence of the phytonutrient rheosmin, commonly known as raspberry ketone. Preliminary research suggests that raspberry ketones promote fat-burning through inhibiting the digestion and absorption of fat.
High in fibre and low in sugar, raspberries are a great low-calorie snack. Other ways we love to have raspberries are over our oatmeal at breakfast or smashed on toast as jam. We’ve also been known to freeze raspberries and use it as flavored ice cubes to jazz up lemonade or ice water.
