Why Frozen Raspberries?


To keep our hearts and bodies in tip-top shape, the USDA recommends we eat an average of 1 ½ to 2 cups of fruit each day[1]. Keeping frozen fruit on hand is a great way to make that a cinch! Why is frozen fruit—especially raspberries—a good way to get your fruit fix?

They are nutritious! Studies show frozen raspberries are just as nutritious as fresh raspberries. Because they are picked at the peak of ripeness and then quickly flash-frozen, they retain all of their nutritional value, including vitamin C, manganese and potassium. Unless the ingredient list says otherwise, plain frozen raspberries don’t contain any added sugars, flavors or preservatives—they are just as nature made them. And a one-cup serving of frozen red raspberries has only 80 calories and 9 grams of fiber!

Frozen raspberries are sweet and delicious! Imagine a ripe, plump raspberry, just picked off the bush. How does it taste? Sweet and delicious! Because frozen raspberries are picked at the height of ripeness, you can get that just-picked raspberry taste all year round. Whenever you crave a taste of summer’s warmth, just pop open a bag of frozen raspberries.

That’s right—frozen raspberries are convenient! Because you don’t have to worry about them spoiling, you can always have raspberries on hand to use in your favorite recipes. You can use only the amount of berries you need, and then reseal the bag for the next time you have raspberry craving.

Frozen raspberries are versatile, and can be used interchangeably in most recipes calling for raspberries. They are perfect for jams, sauces, dressings, baked goods, smoothies and so much more! We love them as a sweet topping to our oatmeal or yogurt in the morning. Check out the recipe page[2] of our website for more ideas!

Frozen raspberries are available in every supermarket! Because fresh raspberries have a short growing season, they are not available in supermarkets all year long. But, what if you’re craving your favorite raspberry crumble in winter? Look no further than your grocery store freezer aisle, and you’ll be enjoying the sweet taste you crave in no time!

Frozen raspberries are very affordable! With frozen berries, there is no waste—they never go bad—which means you’ll never be throwing your money away.

With frozen raspberries, it’s always berry season!
