Informations produit :

Dried cranberries, also known as cranberries, are tart and slightly sweet red fruits that have been dehydrated to preserve their flavor and texture. They are often consumed as a healthy snack or used in a variety of recipes, including salads and desserts.

Cranberries (Vaccinium macrocarpon) are berries native to North America. They grow in acidic bogs, wetlands characterized by acidic, spongy soil. The cranberry harvest takes place in late autumn, typically in October and November.

Once harvested, the cranberries are washed and sorted to remove damaged or impure fruit. Next, they are immersed in a sweetened water bath to help preserve their flavor and texture. Finally, the cranberries are dried with hot air or vacuum dried until they lose about 80% of their water content. Dried cranberries are an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They also contain antioxidants, beneficial compounds that can help protect cells against damage caused by free radicals.
