Fresh Red Raspberries in HandRaspberries are Delicious and Nutritious!

Try and include raspberries in your diet as often as you can, especially at the times that they are harvested locally in the area where you may live.

Fruit allowed to ripen naturally, and harvested just prior to consuming it, will provide the best flavour, and optimum nutrition and health benefits.

Many areas allow for "pick your own raspberries", try it ... it's fun to do as a family outing, and will provide you with the best berries!

This is an especially good idea if you want to pick extra and freeze raspberries, can raspberries, or dehydrate the berries.

They are very rich in Vitamin C, and as you can see from the "Raspberry Nutritional Values Table" (below), they are also a good source of Vitamin B12, Vitamin B3, folate, magnesium, and a good source of dietary fibre.
