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.

 

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.
