Originating from North America, the cranberry comes from a small tree whose preferred soils are peat bogs in cold regions. After the berries are harvested, Cranberry Organic Fruit Powder is made in a sustainable manner; the fruit is dehydrated by targeting only the water molecules, leaving the nutrients and other naturally-occurring components intact.
It’s well-known that cranberries are rich in fiber. With their flavonoid content, cranberries are particularly renowned for their antioxidant properties.
Other than consuming cranberries, their rich red juice was used for hundreds of years as a natural dye for blankets, clothing, and rugs. Even with the many uses found for cranberries, they weren’t harvested on a large scale until the 1800s.
