All red fruit has one thing in common… obviously their bright and cheerful colour! This range of colours that goes from bright red to bluish purple is due to natural pigments such as lycopene in strawberries or anthocyanin in blackberries and wild berries. Red, mauve, pink and blue pigments are incredibly useful for mopping up free radicals that are responsible for cell oxidation.
They also help fight against cell ageing.
The queen of antioxydants is the cranberry.
