Nutritional Benefits: 

Delightful & nutritious

Earthbound Farm Organic Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese,  which plays a role in bone health, blood sugar regulation and fat and carbohydrate digestion. They’re also a good source of fiber.

Strawberries rank among the best sources of antioxidants, especially a class called anthocyanins, which give this fruit their red color. Research shows that the antioxidants in strawberries are efficiently absorbed within an hour of being eaten and may play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases.

Try adding strawberries to a spinach salad, or combine with other produce that contains iron, as this fruit’s vitamin C content will help the body absorb iron from plant-based sources. 
 

Why choose organic strawberries?

Strawberries are #2 on the Environmental Working Group's “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce,” a list of produce that carries the most pesticide residues when grown conventionally. So choosing organic strawberries makes good sense — especially for children, whose growing bodies are so much more susceptible to environmental chemical exposures than adults’.

At Earthbound Farm, we grow our sweet organic strawberries without toxic synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, using sustainable farming methods that protect the environment and help keep pesticides out of our soil, air, water and food supply. Organic food is the healthiest choice for people and the planet — and we think organic strawberries taste better, too!  

WhatsOnMyFood.org from the Pesticide Action Network shows you searchable results for strawberries and a wide range of other organic and conventional foods. It’s an easy-to-use and empowering tool for learning about pesticide residues and their health effects for all of us.
