Eating a cup of red raspberries will provide you with all this nutritional value and you will only be consuming 60 calories.Red Raspberries are high in antioxidants and polyphenols and have an ORAC value of 4900.They contain high levels of a compound known as ellagic acid, a polyphenol prized for its anticarcinogenic properties.
