Cherry Concentrate from Lamberts is a highly concentrated combination of juices from sour cherries, red grape and apples, providing a natural sweetness and great taste.
Lamberts® Cherry Concentrate provides a very rich source of healthy compounds known as polyphenols. There has been a significant amount of research investigating the antioxidant action of these natural health boosters, as well as another group of constituents known as anthocyanidins.
The unique benefits of sour cherries (not to be confused with sweet cherries) first came to light in the 1990s, when numerous studies were published concerning the antioxidant content of this fruit. Further research has identified the active antioxidants as eight polyphenolic compounds, including anthocyanins and quercetin.
As well as potent antioxidants, anthocyanidins have been shown in a number of studies to possess other useful functions in the body. Our diets used to be rich in these fascinating compounds because fruits, berries and seeds were an important part of our 'stone-age' diets. Anthocyanadins are also found in cranberries, bilberries and gogi berries, all of which are hailed as 'superfoods'.
