Cherries have a higher antioxidant capacity than grapes, oranges, plums, raspberries and strawberries combined! Tart cherries are abundant in anthocyanins – a natural compound that contributes to the ruby-red color and distinctive sour-sweet taste. This phytonutrient, a type of flavonoid, is also behind the potential health-promoting properties of tart cherries. While sweet cherries contain a variety of health benefits, tart cherries are loaded with antioxidants and have been shown to reduce muscle soreness and fight heart disease thanks to their anti-inflammatory properties.
Dried sour cherries are grown widely in Turkey and have been used in cakes, tarts and pies and consumed as juice.
BioRich sour cherries are grown by hundreds of contracted small family owned farms. They are carefully harvested by hand during season by family members and stored frozen until processed into organic infused cherries.
