Nutritional values

Raspberries are delicious and on top of that really healthy. The antioxidant flavonoids stimulate the immune system and protect our skin cells from free radicals, which are formed, for example, by sunlight.

Tastes great with other fruit too. Try the cake with blueberries, for example. They contain anthocyanins, which are plant dyes that protect our body cells from free radicals and also inhibit inflammatory processes in the blood vessels - your cardiovascular system benefits from this.
