It is finally that time of year when we can enjoy all of the wonderful fresh fruits that are stocked in our gardens, the local farmers markets and the grocery stores. Below are 3 fruit facts that we wanted to share with you. Next week we will share Veggie Facts.
Raspberries are a great source of fiber—some of it soluble in the form of pectin, which helps lower cholesterol. One cup of raspberries has 8 grams of fiber. Raspberries are also an excellent source of vitamin C.
One cup of strawberries has a respectable 3 grams of fiber and more than a full day’s recommended dose of vitamin C—an antioxidant that helps keep skin healthy.
