The study enforces the benefits of including ample amounts of FRUIT in the diet. The benefits of 50 grams of freeze dry strawberries, the equivalent to 3 cups of fresh strawberries, in the diet of obese individuals is documented. Other studies have shown similar results.
The nutrient returns on about 160 Calories, from three cups of strawberries are significant. Along with essential nutrients are their beneficial PHYTOCHEMICALS.
Indigenous peoples since the dawn of time, have enjoyed strawberries and appreciated their health-giving properties. They called them “heart-seed berries”, as they believed they strengthened the heart. They pounded them into their traditional corn-meal bread. Excess berries were picked, sun dried and stored for winter or added to pemmican, soups, breads or as a flavoring for meat dishes. Strawberries were mashed and mixed with cold water or made into strawberry moon tea."
