By Nutri-Fruit16 Reviews
Expiration Date: May 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

The natural blend of antioxidants present in Black Raspberries are especially noted for their extremely high ORAC value and provide a good source of Vitamin A.
Each serving of Nutri-Fruit Black Raspberry Powder provides nearly 4,650 ORAC units
Nutri-Fruit Black Raspberry Powder provides an excellent source of the flavonoid rutin – a phenolic compound which metabolizes into quercetin. Over 75% of the anthocyanin contribution in black raspberries comes from rutin. The intense, deep natural blue-black color of Munger Black Raspberries used in Nutri-Fruit reflects why this berry leads the antioxidant team by packing a stunning ORAC value exceeding that of all fruit types except Chokeberry and Bilberry.
Black Raspberries are free of saturated fats, sodium, and cholesterol. While many factors affect heart disease and cancer, diets low in saturated fat and rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of these diseases.
Brightly colored fruits, especially berries, have been praised as superior health protectors. These edible delights are highly beneficial foods because of the vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, and phytochemicals that they contain. Antioxidants are a group of phytochemicals, each carrying unique properties valuable for maintaining our health. For more details about specific types of antioxidants, please see glossary.
ORAC, short for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, is a measure of the total antioxidant score of foods. More specifically, ORAC measures the ability of foods (and other substances like blood plasma) to 'sponge up' or remove oxygen free radicals – highly reactive compounds that do tremendous damage to the delicate machinery of our cells.
Research suggests that we can benefit most by eating fruits and vegetables that provide 3,000 – 5,000 units of ORAC per day

Black Raspberries are rich in ellagic acid, anthocyanins and antioxidants, and have superior health benefits. They provide an excellent source of rutin. Rutin is a bioflavonoid – compound that is similar in composition to vitamin C. Rutin is important because strengthens capillaries and has anti-inflammatory effect. My mom takes this product to treat her varicose veins, combines it with oatmeal or yogurt. She says this is excellent product that tastes really good. Recommend this product! Thanks.
