Tart cherries are a healthy whole fruit that is high in fiber, potassium, beta carotene, and antioxidants. One-quarter cup of dried cherries has 15% of the RDA for fiber. Many research studies have found that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol and high in fiber are associated with a reduced risk of certain cancers, diabetes, digestive disorders, and heart disease. Cherries also contain potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, vitamins A, C, B6, E, and folic acid. Tart cherries have virtually no fat and no sodium. This variety of nutrients in tart cherries translates into good nutrition. In fact, the nutrient profile of cherries is hard to beat. – King Orchards Farms

This is a wonderful high-antioxidant, bowel-movin’ muffin loaded up in vitamins, minerals, and lots of other goodies. Heart-healthy walnuts are in these tasty muffins and the cherries and cherry juice (without added sugars) have been known to fight inflammation and some diseases. (More about the health benefits in my official review posts of King Orchards tart cherry products.)
