Discover the Health Benefits of Tart Cherries
Cherry pie is a classic American favourite, but there’s so much more to know about those tart cherries nested inside the crust.
This traditional pie ingredient has gained a new reputation – praised for its versatility, nutrient density and health benefits.
There are now more than 60 studies specifically on Montmorency tart cherries and scientists continue to uncover new and important benefits of this fruit.
Nearly all of the health research on cherries has been conducted on the U.S. grown Montmorency variety vs. any other type of cherry. Studies on this ruby red superfruit have included research on arthritis, gout, exercise recovery, sleep, heart health and gut health.
Montmorency Tart Cherries are harvested in the summer, yet they’re available all year-round in multiple tasty forms: dried, frozen, canned, 100% juice and juice concentrate.
You can use them to add a pop of colour, a nutrient punch and a hint of sweet-tart flavor to overnight oats, grain bowls, salads, side dishes, trail mixes and much more.
Tart or sour cherries (Prunus cerasus) are an American fruit, grown primarily in seven U.S. states: Michigan, Utah, Wisconsin, Washington, Oregon, Pennsylvania and New York. The U.S. variety is called Montmorency.
While the name may come from a valley in France, Montmorency tart cherries are strictly grown in the U.S. So when you buy Montmorency tart cherries, you’re supporting American family farms, all the way from the UK.Learn more
