The strawberry is called ‘the queen of fruits’ in Asian countries. These juicy heart-shaped delights have much more to offer beyond sweetness and flavor. Strawberries are considered a superfruit by experts because of thier health benefits. In addition, strawberries are good sources of folic acid, potassium and fiber. Strawberries are also fat-free and low in calories.

One serving of eight strawberries has more vitamin C than an orange and is packed with beneficial antioxidants and nutrients including potassium, folate and fiber.

Scientists have recently discovered a fascinating relationship between intake of strawberries, table sugar, and blood sugar levels. With the equivalent of approximately one cup of fresh strawberries (approximately 150 grams), blood sugar elevations from simple sugar intake can be reduced. These health science researchers have further speculated that polyphenols in strawberries played a major role in helping regulate blood sugar response.
