Anthocyanins, antioxidant pigments from fruit and vegetables, also have a “significant potency” against fat cells and could be used for the prevention of weight gain, suggests a new study from Japan. Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry Volume 56, Number 3, Pages 642-646
Saskatoon berries appear to be an excellent source of manganese, magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, copper and carotene. Saskatoon berries are considered a better source of calcium than red meats, vegetables and cereals. Recent research indicates saskatoons have very high components of phenolics, flavonols and anthocyanins. Saskatoons are high in natural sugar, rich in Vitamin C, and also contain more than three times as much iron and copper in the same weight as raisins.
