Cherries have a low energy value and are rich in vitamin A, phenolic compounds and flavonoids, which are antioxidants. These compounds, when associated with a healthy lifestyle, appear to have beneficial health effects, namely in the prevention of coronary disease and certain types of cancer.
These fruits can be eaten in the form of jam, confectionery, in pies or fresh. The latter is the best choice as it is not associated with excessive amounts of sugar.
