Cranberries have long been treasured as health food. These tangy fruits supply a unique source of A-type proanthocyanidins (PAC), a type of antioxidants that helps to reduce the risk of urinary tract infections by preventing the infection-causing bacteria from attaching to the cells that line the urinary tract. These same compounds may also prevent the development of gastric ulcers.
A single serving (40g) of Biogreen PAC-37 Whole Dried Cranberries provides 37mg PACs, which is in line with the health 2 claim permitted by French Food Safety Agency that “A product containing at least 36mg PACs of North American Cranberry may help reduce the adhesion of certain E. coli bacteria to the urinary tract walls”. They are slowly dried below 60°C as whole berries without extracting the juice, making them brilliant for snacking, baking, mixing into cereals or tossing with salads.
- Harvested at peak ripeness to ensure plumpness
- Air-dried at lower temperature (<60°C) with minimal juice extraction to retain the berry’s integrity and health benefits
