Dried mulberries has a wonderful taste. Nature’s most powerful sources of nutrients
It is not at all surprising to me that these little berries are available in stores as a superfood! As it turns out, mulberries mean business in the nutrition department. They are fairly high in protein; one handful contains about 3 grams of protein (for comparison- bananas are about 4% protein and mulberries are about 11%.) They are a sweet source of vitamin C ,with about one handful. They’re also a decent source of iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin K, potassium, and fiber.
Now, lets get down to why exactly you should be adding this superfood to your diet. First and foremost, most berries contain antioxidants. By protecting your body from oxidation, berries have the potential to work to prevent heart disease, diabetes and various conditions related to ageing.
Berries are the healthiest fruit and can protect against cancer, guard the liver and brain and boost immune function.” This is due to the fact that berries are very antioxidant-rich. In fact, blackberries have up to 650 units of antioxidants per cup. Other berries, such as blueberries have impressive amounts too.
