Raspberries are small, hollow berries that are typically red but also available in colours such as gold and dark purple.

Health considerations

Raspberries are high in fiber and relatively low in sugar, and a source of vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese, and small amounts of other vitamins and minerals. Raspberries are rich in antioxidant polyphenols such as anthocyanins and the fairly uncommon ellagitannins. Extracts and specific compounds present in raspberries have shown multiple health benefits in laboratory testing, such as reduced weight gain on a high-fat diet, decreased oxidative stress, and decreased inflammation.
