Available year-round, strawberries are a delicious, quintessentially British snack that can be enjoyed every day as part of a healthy diet.
Strawberries are high in fibre, low in calories and sugar, and contain no fat.
Strawberries support your immune system. Not only is the whole strawberry rich in plant antioxidants, but the red fleshy part is also extremely high in Vitamin C. Strawberries provide a daily Vitamin C boost, and in fact, contain more Vitamin C than oranges. Just 7 strawberries (80g – a portion) provide the recommended daily amount of vitamin C which contributes to the normal function of the immune system along with the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Research suggests that eating strawberries, alongside a carbohydrate rich meal may help to reduce spikes in blood sugar and insulin levels. Improving blood sugar and insulin sensitivity could be helpful for preventing metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes.
Strawberries also provide vitamin K, manganese, folic acid, potassium, riboflavin, vitamin B5, B6, copper, magnesium, fibre and phytonutrients so make the perfect healthy snack.
Eating strawberries containing Vitamin C, pelargonidin (an anthocyanin), total anthocyanins and flavonoids - were linked to a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s Dementia.
Strawberries help to reduce cholesterol. New ‘gold-standard’ research looked at strawberries and cardiovascular risk factors. The evidence from seven studies found that consuming strawberries was linked to reduced total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels in adults who had high blood levels of these at the start of the study.
