Which berries are best for your health?
- by admin
This week, the Food and Drug Administration released the latest list of the best berries for healthy eating.
The USDA has been working on the list since 2011, when it first started collecting data on what berries are good for us.
But the agency had trouble getting its data into the public domain because of a lawsuit, the first in which the USDA was sued for failing to properly register the data.
This week’s list is different in that it includes the most popular varieties of berries for sale at retailers, such as apples, pears, cherries and pearsauce.
It also includes more popular varieties, such in the case of pears and cherries, that are grown in other countries, and has some of the more popular types of berries, such apples and pomegranates, as well as the more common varieties.
The new list was released to the public this week, and is available here.
The Food and Drugs Administration also released a statement about the new list, saying the agency has made “a concerted effort to identify and register all berries” on the market.
“We know that some berries are associated with health issues, so we have done our part to protect consumers from potential harm by identifying and registering all berries,” the statement read.
“The USDA has always been a strong supporter of the public health benefits of berries and we have taken the position that all berries, regardless of where they come from, should be registered and listed on the FDA’s database.”
The USDA said the list is part of a process it is continuing to work on to improve how the agency registers all berries.
