Gooseberries

These tart little guys are not your everyday, run-of-the-mill berries! Low in calories and fat, gooseberries are most commonly used in fruit desserts or as the base of rich sauces, but add them to your NutriBlast for a surprising change in your taste profile. They are often considered too bitter by the typical American palate, but work well in combination with fruits such as apples and currants, their distant relatives. High in dietary fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin A, you'll also be doing your immune system a favor by adding them in. Dietary fiber has been shown to help maintain a healthy weight and lower your risk of developing diabetes and heart disease.

Selection Process

Choose hard, dry berries that are rich in color. Green berries are not ripe, but are the ones often used in making pies or jams. Most commonly found during the spring and summer months. If unavailable fresh, be sure to buy organic canned varieties that are chemical and additive-free.
