Raspberries have significantly high levels of phenolic flavonoid phytochemicals such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid (tannin), quercetin, gallic acid, cyanidins, pelargonidins, catechins, kaempferol and salicylic acid. Scientific studies show that the antioxidant compounds in these berries play a potential role against cancer, ageing, inflammation, and neuro-degenerative diseases.
Delicious raspberries are low in calories and fats. Nonetheless, they are a rich source of dietary fibre and antioxidants. 100g of raspberries contain 11.94g carbohydrate, 0.65g fat, 6.5g fibre (16% of daily recommended intake), all for just 52 calories.
