Health Benefits of Dried Cranberries Versus Cranberry Juice


Cranberries are nutritious, high in fiber and rich in antioxidants, but when you juice them or dry them, their nutritional profile changes. Juicing removes some of their fiber content, and the heat used during the dehydration process depletes them of some of their water-soluble nutrients. Drying them condenses their vitamin and mineral content, however, making a handful of dried cranberries comparable, in some respects, to a glass of cranberry juice.

Immune Function

If you are trying to increase your intake of antioxidants, which help prevent premature aging and may protect you against illness and bacteria, cranberry juice is superior to dried cranberries. An 8-ounce glass of cranberry juice has 107 milligrams of vitamin C, surpassing your daily requirement of 75 milligrams. A 1/3-cup serving of dried cranberries has less than 1 milligram of vitamin C.
