Numerous scientific studies have regarded berries as extremely healthy and indicate that they should be a part of your daily diet owing to their high antioxidant levels. The antioxidants and polyphenols, that also impart the dark color to these berries, make them good for your heart, brain and even your skin. 

Not just that, these bright and sweet superfruits are a delicious addition to your breakfast bowl or your evening salad. If you walk around the supermarket fruit aisle, you will find several varieties of imported berries like the cranberries, goji berries or the blueberries that have had everyone talking. But we'd like to introduce and turn the spotlight on our very own native Indian berries that deserve as much attention and are probably much healthier as they are locally cultivated and are not packaged and flown in from thousand miles away. 

Berries have been used as raw fruits, pickles, to make vegetables, jam, in dehydrated form and so much more.
