Berries are not only “Berry Delicious” they are extremely healthy for you. Quoted from Oregon State University “Scientists have found berries have some of the highest antioxidant levels of any fresh fruits (measured as ORAC), and kale and spinach are the only vegetables with ORAC values as high as fresh, delicious berries. Fresh berries are some of the most powerful (and delicious) disease-fighting foods available.” More detailed information on the health and nutritional benefits of berries can be found at: http://berryhealth.fst.oregonstate.edu/health_healing/fact_sheets/
