Dried wild raspberries: uses and nutritional benefits

The raspberry tree belongs to the Rosaceae family. It is known for its very appreciated fruit: the Raspberry. The Raspberry is a small fruit with a delicate fragrance and a balanced flavor: neither too sweet nor too sour. It can be eaten fresh, in compote, in jam or dried. The drying stage concentrates its nutrients, which increases its fiber content. The small seeds that we eat with its flesh contribute to its total insoluble fiber content. Thus, dried raspberries are appreciated for their laxative and cholesterol-lowering properties. Latin name: Rubus ideus L. Botanical family: Rosaceae. Part used: Fruit.

The dried raspberry is a dry fruit. It therefore contains more sugar than a fresh Raspberry, the recommendations for daily consumption are defined.

Digestive system

Thanks to its flesh and seeds, Raspberry is rich in insoluble fiber. It fights constipation by accelerating intestinal transit (see our guide constipation and diet).


Fibers reduce the absorption of cholesterol. They are said to be cholesterol-lowering. Dried raspberries are naturally rich in fiber. Therefore, they contribute to the management of cholesterol levels.

Nutritional properties

  • Laxative (fiber): among berries, Raspberries are among the richest in fiber. The fibers are mostly insoluble (cellulose) due to the presence of its seeds. In the presence of water, the insoluble fibers gorge themselves with water. In the digestive tract, they increase the mass of the stools, which accelerates the intestinal transit.
  • Hypolipidemic (fiber): fiber reduces the bioavailability of nutrients. This means that nutrient absorption is reduced. Therefore, cholesterol and triglycerides also have lowered absorptions.

The raspberry tree is a shrub of the Rosaceae family. Because of its thorns that line its stems, and its woody character, the raspberry bush easily fits into the plants called "bramble". Their white flowers point the end of their petals at the beginning of the summer. They will give birth to the fruit, globular, red and appreciated: the Raspberry. The raspberry tree thrives in temperate regions, in the shade of forests. Different cultivars and varieties of Raspberries are available in the world; the main producers of Raspberries are Russia, Mexico, Serbia, Poland, the United States and Spain.
