These red fruits are rich in micro elements, minerals, tannins and flavonoids, essential fatty acids - linoleic acid (omega-6), alpha linoleic acid (omega-3), carotenoids and phytosterols. This kind of cranberries are one of the biggest and absolutely natural sources of vitamin C but also contain high quantities of vitamins A and E.
