Dried cranberries are made by partially dehydrating fresh cranberries, a process similar to making grapes into raisins. They are popular in trail mix, salads, and bread, with cereals or eaten on their own.
Dried cranberries contain the same nutrients as fresh cranberries (notably dietary fibre and antioxidants). However, commercial drying processes substantially reduce vitamin A and vitamin C content. The nutrient density is also reduced if sugar is added.
