Macronutrients, which consist of protein, carbohydrates and fat, make up the calorie content of a food. Most of the calories in red currants come from carbohydrates. A 100-gram serving, which is 7/8 cup, contains about 14 grams of carbs, 1.5 grams of protein, 0.2 grams of fat and 56 calories. The recommended intake of carbs for adults, set by the Institute of Medicine, is 130 grams a day. Men should get at least 56 grams of protein a day and women should consume 46 grams.
Premium Black berries are a delicious addition to any diet. Blackberries contain a high level of vitamin C. One serving of 100 grams (g) contains 35 percent of an individual’s recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamin C. Black berries tastes amazing with yogurt.
Imported Longans are now available for online orders. The longan has very sweet tasting flesh with a slightly tart, musky undertone. It is similar to a lychee in flavor, only blander, and it has a less pronounced floral aroma.
Sapota or Chikoo is quite popular for it’s taste. The skin is edible, but is slightly tart. A ripe sapota will yield to gentle thumb pressure, similar to a ripe plum. The fruit has an exceptionally sweet malty flavor.
