Strawberry Nutrition Facts

Berries Are the New Power Food!

When looking for strawberry nutrition facts, you'll find that nothing packs a bigger nutritional punch than this little berry.

Prized in ancient Rome for their medicinal uses, strawberries are recognized as having more vitamin C than some citrus fruits. They are also high in fiber, folate, potassium and antioxidants, making them a natural means of reducing the chances of heart disease, high blood pressure and certain cancers.

With only 55 calories per one cup serving, and containing 140% of the recommended daily dose of vitamin C for children, it makes sense to add this fruit to your daily menus.

The fact that strawberries are available year round, offers you the perfect opportunity to add great taste and nutrition to your everyday meals. Research shows that 94% of Americans currently consume strawberries and it is strongly suggested that eating them more often will add to a person's overall long term health.
