Cranberries and cranberry drinks have become popular with many women as studies have shown that they may help to maintain a healthy urinary tract. However, cranberry juice is very sharp to the taste and consequently many commercial cranberry drinks are often laden with sugar and high in calories.
LAMBERTS Cranberry Complex is produced from fresh mature cranberries which are first washed and de-pectinised to remove unwanted substances. The juice is then dehydrated at low temperature then pressure and spray dried to produce a low sugar concentrate. This ensures the unique properties of cranberries may be enjoyed by those following sugar-restricted diets. Approximately 25 grams of fresh cranberries are used to produce just 1 gram of our concentrate. As a result, just one teaspoon of our concentrated cranberry powder is equivalent to up to 12 typical cranberry tablets sold in many high street shops.
LAMBERTS Cranberry Complex also contains useful levels of a soluble fibre called fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS), a sweet, easily dissolved substance extracted from chicory root. FOS acts as a prebiotic, which means it encourages the growth of friendly bacteria.
