Fragrantly sweet with a subtly tart overtone and almost melt-in-your-mouth texture, raspberries are wonderfully delicious and are usually in limited supply. Related to roses and blackberries, these little pink jewels are low in calories and full of vitamin C and contain much more fiber than most fruits. They’re not always pink – they come in yellow and other marvelous colors as well. The insoluble fiber in raspberries makes them helpful for curing constipation, while their soluble fiber in the form of pectin helps lower unhealthy cholesterol. Raspberries contain the powerful cancer busting phytonutrient ellagic acid. Replete with anthocyanins the plant pigments that prevent cancer and heart disease – raspberries are a good weapon against many degenerative diseases.
