Research Shows Decas Sweetened Dried Cranberries Pack Twice the Proanthocyanidin Punch as Cranberry Juice Cocktail
Date:12/13/2007

Decas SDCs Offer Greater Amounts of the Natural Compound Responsible for

Antioxidant and Anti-adhesion Benefits

CARVER, Mass., Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Decas Cranberry Products, Inc. announced today the results of new research showing that 1 oz. (or a 1/4 cup) of Decas Sweetened Dried Cranberries (SDCs) has twice the proanthocyanidin (PAC) level of an 8-ounce glass of cranberry juice cocktail. Found abundantly in cranberries, proanthocyanidins (PACs) are natural plant compounds with antioxidant, anti-adhesion and anti-bacterial health promoting properties. Brunswick Laboratories, a leading laboratory specializing in the science of antioxidants, conducted the testing sponsored by Decas.

Cranberry PACs work as an antioxidant to help combat free radical damage in the body and have been shown to be uniquely effective in supporting urinary tract health via their bacterial anti-adhesion ability. According to Ronald L. Prior, Ph.D. of the USDA Arkansas Children's Nutrition Center, cranberries have high antioxidant activity and a unique A-type PAC linkage structure that sets it apart from most other plants. "Brunswick Labs' data on the PAC content of SDCs shows levels much higher than originally reported. Their work confirms that cranberries have been shown to contain the highest level of PACs of most major fruits tested." This new research updates older information about the relative PAC levels found in SDCs and cranberry juice cocktail.

"This new research confirms that Decas SDCs are abundant in proanthocyanidins, or what we call PACs," said Jeff Carlson, president of Decas Cranberry Products, Inc. "That's good news for product developers and manufacturers looking to add healthy ingredients to their product lines. Now they can turn to Decas SDCs for greater amounts of cranberry anti-adhesion and antioxidant power."

According to Carlson, sweetened dried cranberries are one of the fastest growing segments of the cranberry
