BERRY MIX LIMITED EDITION FOR VALENTINE’S DAY!

For Valentine’s Day McGarlet offers you a limited edition of the Berry Mix, the selection of 4 berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries) featured by a special pack.

The berries are perfect to be enjoyed naturally, but they can also give a lively touch to fruit salads, enrich sweets and ice cream or constitute the main ingredient of exquisite jams, syrups or liqueurs. They are also a valuable ally for our health as they are rich in anthocyanins, the pigments that give most of them the characteristic blue/purple or dark red color: belonging to the flavonoid family, they have strong antioxidant properties, since they inhibit the advance of free radicals and reduce the damage they cause to tissues. In particular, they perform a vasodilatory action, protecting the cardiovascular system from the dangers deriving from excess cholesterol in the blood and helping the nervous system to stay “fit”.

Let yourself be conquered by the love of berries!
