Dried fruit is from which the majority of the original water content has been removed either naturally, through sun drying food, or through the use of specialised dryers or dehydrators.
Health Benefits of Cranberries
Antioxidants and phytonutrients in cranberries, such as oligomeric proanthocyanidins, anthocyanidin flavonoids (which give them their bright red color), cyanidin, peonidin, and quercetin, have unique health-impacting attributes. (Scientists say it’s possible that the anthocyanidin strength in cranberries is increased when they’re water-harvested, due to the amount of natural sunlight they’re exposed to.) Some contain stroke- and cardiovascular disease-preventing compounds that discourage cholesterol from forming in the heart and blood vessels.
