Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese and also contain decent amounts of folate (vitamin B9) and potassium. Strawberries are very rich in antioxidants and plant compounds, which may have benefits for heart health and blood sugar control. Strawberries mainly consist of water (91%) and carbohydrates (7.7%). They contain only minor amounts of fat (0.3%) and protein (0.7%).
Fresh strawberries are very high in water, so their total carbohydrate content is very low. More than 25 different anthocyanins have been found in strawberries. Anthocyanins are responsible for the bright colors of fruits and flowers.They are usually concentrated in the skins of fruit, but berries, such as strawberries also tend to have anthocyanins in their flesh. Anthocyanin content is usually proportional to color intensity, increasing greatly as the fruit ripens. Anthocyanin rich foods are associated with numerous health benefits, especially regarding heart health.
Eating strawberries is associated with a reduced risk of many chronic diseases. Strawberries may improve heart health, lower blood sugar levels, and help prevent cancer.
