Boysenberry Nutrition

Boysenberry Nutrition The boysenberry fruit is a cross between a raspberry, a blackberry, and a loganberry. Fairly new to the UK market, they have been grown commercially in New Zealand for over thirty years and are a popular ice cream flavour.

  • Boysenberry nutrition is a good fruit source of fibre which maintains bowel regularity, thereby helping to prevent bowel cancer. Fibre also helps to maintain normal cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

  • Boysenberries are a good source of niacin (vitamin B3) which can help lower cholesterol levels and stabilise the blood sugar. Vitamin B3 also helps the body to process fats.

  • Boysenberry nutrition contains fairly good levels of folate which helps red cell production and also plays a part in the prevention of homocysteine build up in the blood. Folate also helps prevent bone related diseases and can help prevent Alzheimers disease.

  • Boysenberries also provide a good source of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) which helps carbohydrates and fats turn into energy. B5 can also improve stress levels by supporting the adrenal glands.

  • Boysenberry nutrition contains high levels of anthocyanins (120-160 mg/ 100g) that work as antioxidants to help fight free radical damage in the body and give boysenberries their deep, dark colour.

  • The boysenberry fruit have a uniquely high ratio of free ellagic acid to total ellagitannins that is thought to make the ellagic acid more readily available to the body. Ellagic acid is thought to prevent abnormal cellular changes which may cause cancer.

  • Boysenberry nutrition is high in manganese which plays a part in bone health, maintains normal blood sugar levels and helps with thyroid function. Manganese also helps to protect the nerves from free radical damage.

  • Boysenberries are also a fairly good source of vitamin K which is needed for blood clotting (helps wounds to heal properly), and to help build strong bones.

  • Boysenberry nutrition also contains fairly good levels of potassium which is needed for balancing the pH of your body, normal muscle growth, and for a healthy nervous system and brain function.

  • One cup of boysenberries contains around 66 calories.
