Q1. Why is cranberries linked to urinary tract infections?
In 1998, researchers from Rutgers University identified the specific components in cranberries that function as previously suggested. These condensed tannins or proanthocyanidins from the cranberry fruit prevent Escherichia coli (E.coli), the primary bacteria responsible for UTIs, from attaching to cells in the urinary tract. Thus, the bacteria are flushed from the tract rather than being allowed to adhere, grow and lead to infection.
Q2. Why is there sugar added in PAC-37 Whole Dried Cranberries?
Out of all fruits, cranberries have one of the lowest amounts of sugar. In every cup of cranberries, there is only 4g of sugar. This compares to raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries, which have 5, 7, and 7 grams of sugar per cup, respectively. Other similar fruits such as cherries and grapes, have 18 and 15 grams of sugar per cup, respectively. Therefore, dried cranberries are very sour and may not be palatable to most people. Thus, a small amount of sugar is added for better acceptance. Furthermore, Biogreen products are all free from artificial preservatives. Sugar serves as a natural preservative to keep the cranberries with a better shelf life.
