Ocean Spray – who we all know and love has introduced a new power player to the “seed” market – cranberry seeds. Yes, you heard that right, tiny seeds from our tart little berry friends.
According to a company press release, “Ocean Spray® Cranberry Seeds offer a multitude of nutritional attributes as an excellent source of fiber at 1.6 times the amount found in chia and flax seeds, a good source of zinc, magnesium, and Omega 3 fatty acids. In addition, the seeds are 100% natural in vibrant red color, GMO free, allergen free, and have no additives or preservatives. With these attributes, when consumed as part of a healthy diet, Cranberry Seeds have dietary fiber that can can help support digestive health, zinc that can help support immunity, omega-3 fatty acids that can help support heart health, and magnesium and zinc that may also support cognitive function.”
The seeds come from upcycling what would’ve been food waste, and are provided by Ocean Spray’s cooperative of cranberry farmers. Learn more at cranberryseeds.com and find some pretty tasty sounding recipes utilizing the newest seed on the block.
