Antioxidant Capacity and Phenolic and Phytochemicals in Black Raspberries - Cornell University
“Black raspberries are an excellent source of antioxidants in the human diet. With 10 or more times the antioxidant capacity than many other fruits and vegetables, even a small quantity of black raspberries added to the diet can significantly increase total antioxidant consumption. As few as four average sized berries (2.5 g each) has a greater antioxidant capacity than 100g (3.5 oz.) of many fruits and vegetables. With this level of antioxidant power, black raspberries can be an affordable, low calorie source of antioxidant in anyone’s diet."
