How are sour cherries good for me?
Sour cherries are loaded with three disease-fighting chemicals that have been shown to stop cell transformation (leading to cancer) in numerous research studies. These powerful chemicals include perillyl alcohol, limonene and ellagic acid. Only cherries contain all three chemicals. They are particularly protective against breast, lung, liver, skin and colon cancers. In fact, findings from an experiment designed to test the potential of sour/tart cherry anthocyanins to inhibit intestinal tumor development in mice was published in "Cancer Letters" in May 2003. Researchers found that mice consuming the cherry diet had significantly fewer and smaller adenomas than mice consuming the control diet. Cherry anthocyanins also reduced cell growth of certain human colon cancer cell lines in vitro. These results strongly suggest that sour cherry anthocyanins may reduce the risk of colon cancer.
What varieties of sour cherry are there?
There are two main varieties of the sour cherry: the dark-red Morello cherry and the lighter-red Amarelle cherry.
Sour cherries are used in the production of kriek lambic, a cherry-flavored variety of a naturally fermented beer made in Belgium.
