A 2010 study published in the "Journal of Food Science" found that dried cranberries retain many of their antioxidants when they are freeze-dried, hot air-dried or vacuum-microwave dried. The antioxidants in dried cranberries can help reduce inflammation, cutting your risk of chronic health problems, such as heart disease and cancer.
They are also high in vitamin C, vitamin A, and the unique nature of their proanthocyanidins means they can relieve urinary tract infections.
