Source of fiber and iron

Like the raspberry, the blackberry is a fruit that grows in plants. They grow in moderate climates, principally in North and South of America, Europe, the British Isles and Australia. The original colonists of America did not find them easily because of the thickness of the forests. Blackberries spread later as these forests were clearing up and about the year 1825, the farming of the blackberry began in North America.

The blackberries are a delicious source of vitamins A, B, C, E, calcium, fiber and iron. In fact, only half a cup of fresh blackberries has approximately the same content in fiber than three quarters of integral rice. This appetizing food offers a tasty way of obtaining the essential nutrients of a balanced diet.
