Health benefits of strawberries
Strawberries owe their red color to the many antioxidants they contain. These are very good for fighting free radicals! The red color is caused by anthocyanins.

How do you store strawberries?
Strawberries are a fruit that is relatively fast moldy. It is therefore advisable to consume it within 2 to 3 days after buying and to store them in the refrigerator. Look closely in the store to the quality of the strawberries. They have to look good and spread a sweet fragrance. If a strawberry is moldy, it will spread relatively quickly. When you store them uncovered, you can keep them longer. It is advisable to clean them just before consumption.

Strawberries can be frozen. This makes them suitable for consumption for a period up to a year. This is ideal for those who like to eat strawberries in winter. In winter they are also available but often at a price which is two or three times as expensive as in the summer. Strawberries can also be purchased frozen.
