Health & Nutrition

Strawberries are in low in sugar and calories and provide a unique combination of essential nutrients, dietary fiber and phytochemicals. Clinical research suggests that eating just a serving of eight strawberries a day may improve heart health, help manage diabetes, support brain health, and reduce the risk of some cancers.

One serving of eight strawberries has more vitamin C than an orange and is packed with beneficial antioxidants and nutrients including potassium, folate and fiber. With year-round availability, California strawberries are a healthy and versatile fruit to enjoy every day.

Strawberries 8 a Day

Just one cup benefits the entire body.

The American Diabetes Association identifies berries, including strawberries, as one of the top ten superfoods for a diabetes meal plan because they are low in sugar, packed with vitamins, antioxidants and dietary fiber.  When added up, strawberries provide a nutritious “Whole in One” for the entire body.

Delicious in both sweet and savory dishes, or by themselves, strawberries are a versatile fruit that can be enjoyed in every meal of the day. By just adding eight strawberries to simple, everyday recipes, it’s easy to boost nutrition and make a difference in overall health.
