Berries contain many beneficial micronutrients including vitamin C and calcium. In addition, berries are an excellent source of dietary fiber (mostly a soluble fiber called pectin). Scientists have found that berries have some of the highest antioxidant levels of any fruits. Kale and spinach are the only vegetables with oxygen radical absorptive capacity (ORAC) values as high as fresh delicious berries. These tiny mouth-watering fruits contain numerous health-promoting compounds. They are some of the most powerful (and yummy) “good-for-you” foods available.
