The delicious raspberry known from our gardens is a priceless treasure trove of exquisite flavours, vitamins and minerals.
Although the fruit has been known since prehistoric times, Europeans started cultivating it only in the Middle Ages.
It may seem that the raspberry has only one colour, pink, but nothing could be further from the truth!
We currently know over 200 raspberry species that are red, purple, golden, black and even white in colour.
The fruit contains organic acids, pectins, anthocyanins, sugars, mucilaginous compounds, volatile aroma compounds and a plethora of vitamins (e.g. C, E, B1, B2, B6) and minerals, most notably potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron.
