Good Morning Everyone!
We are on to the letter “I” in our journey through the alphabet of healthy foods!
Incaberries are indigenous to the tropical regions of South America and are not true berries; they actually belong to the tomato family. They are an exotic, organic fruit with a sweet taste but sour finish. They are commonly consumed as a dried fruit either alone or mixed with other fruits in salads. If you are someone who loves to bake, incaberries are ideal for breads, cakes, muffins and scones and can be used in place of raisins, cranberries or blueberries in many recipes. While these berries are healthy for you, they should still be consumed in moderation because they contain 19g of sugar per serving.
Main health benefits:
