Sweet, succulent, and just a wee bit tart, sweet cherries are deep red glossy globes of goodness and a real treat for the senses. Promising research on this tart variety of cherry uncovers a variety of benefits from supporting healthy sleep (from its naturally occurring melatonin) to healthy joints, and a healthy immune defense. Like many of its superfruit cohorts, sour cherry is teeming with polyphenols that are notorious for busting free radical oxidation. Much tarter than the sweet cherry, and definitely better for us! Our cherries are always certified organic so they are free of the chemical pesticides and herbicides that plague many berry varieties. We also freeze-dry our cherries so that all of their goodness is captured in the best way possible.
