TASTE: sweet with hints of sour
BENEFITS: Raspberries are the main berry source of ellagitannins, a type of antioxidant that may have anticancer effects. They are also a good source of vitamin K, which helps increase bone-mineral density, reducing your risk of fractures.
Raspberries are a delicious way to get some additional fiber and nutrients into your daily lives. Raspberries have recently become popular due to a fat burning nutrient called phytonutrient rheosmin, also known as raspberry ketones. Raspberry ketones promote fat burning though inhibiting the digestion and absorption of fat.
