Organic Dried Cherries (Sweetened)
Our organic dried cherries (Sweetened) with their vibrant, deep red color and tart but sweet taste, dried cherries make for a flavorful addition to your diet. They also provide some essential vitamins and minerals that support your health.
Dried cherries' sweet flavor makes them welcome in salads. Combine them with chopped roasted walnuts and sliced pear over a bed of dark leafy greens, such as spinach or arugula. They also work well in grain salads -- for example, a mixture of quinoa, fresh mint, dried cherries, sliced oranges and an orange juice vinaigrette. Alternatively, add them to tuna or chicken salad for use in sandwiches, or bake them into whole-grain muffins.
Cherries serve as a good source of copper, an essential mineral. Your body relies on copper to aid collagen production, a process needed to keep your tissues strong. Copper also supports tissue health by protecting you from free radicals, compounds that would otherwise contribute to tissue damage, and by helping your cells produce energy. Each quarter-cup serving of cherries contains 92 micrograms of copper, or 10 percent of your recommended daily intake.
