Mulberries are considered a “superfood” due to their high antioxidant content, mainly from resveratrol and other phytonutrients.
Mulberries are a deliciously sweet fruit grown in Asia, Africa, and America (mostly in warmer climates). Mulberries come in several varieties; white, red, purple, and black, where white mulberries seem to be the most popular. If you’ve never tasted a mulberry before, they’re incredibly sweet and have one of the most unique flavors.
The taste is somewhat bitter yet sweet like candy, with a hint of pear, citrus, and floral. Dried mulberries also have a crumbly yet chewy texture which is especially nice in trail mixes or muesli.
Health Benefits of Mulberries:
Mulberries are packed with antioxidants and phytochemicals. They’re particularly well-known for their resveratrol content. They’re a great source of iron and vitamin C as well. They have been associated with decreasing risks of cancer, lowering cholesterol and blood sugar.
