Dried cranberries are a quick snack to grab on the go.
While they are fruit, they aren't as nutritious as they might seem. Like many dried fruits, dried cranberries contain a significant number of calories.
These tiny fruits also contain large amounts of sugar but only small doses of essential vitamins and minerals.
Read the package label carefully for correct portion size.
A 1/3-cup of dried cranberries supplies 0.43 milligrams of vitamin E toward your daily goal of 15 milligrams. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that can help destroy free radicals.
