When you think of cranberries, it's likely two things come to mind: Thanksgiving and urinary tract infections (UTIs).
Grown in bogs throughout Asia, Europe and North America, cranberries contain unique compounds (including d-mannose and tannins) that prevent bacteria from sticking to bladder walls and creating a painful (and potentially dangerous) infection.
When choosing cranberries, be sure to select unsweetened cranberry juice and make your traditional cranberry sauce at the holidays using no calorie, zero glycemic erythritol.

Harvested between Labor Day and Halloween, the peak market period for cranberries is from October through December. They're usually packaged in 12-ounce plastic bags. Any cranberries that are discolored or shriveled should be discarded. Cranberries can be refrigerated, tightly wrapped, for at least 2 months or frozen up to a year.
