Black raspberries are highest in antioxidants
Berries are “superfoods” because they contain high amounts of powerful phenolic antioxidants—known as anthocyanins—which give these fruits their distinctive dark colors. In this study, researchers measured the antioxidant levels in several berries grown in Central Europe and found that black raspberries in particular contained three times the total antioxidant levels of other berries, and 1,000 percent more phenolic antioxidants compared to red raspberries or blackberries.
