Calories In Blackberries


Calories in blackberries

A half cup of blackberries weighing 72 grams has only 30 calories according to the CDC.

There are about 10 grams of carbohydrates and about half of those are sugars.

There are 4 grams of fiber in that serving size.

There are small amounts of vitamins and minerals with about 25% of Vitamin C daily value.

There is only 1 gram of protein, and a trace of fat.

They are rich in polyphenols and have been tested as very high in antioxidant values.

A ripe blackberry

This fruit should be fully black. Avoid areas with red or green as they are not yet ripened.

They will mold in a few days, so always inspect them before eating.

Popular serving ideas

Since they do not store well, most people eat them fresh picked.

There is no need for cream or sugar for a totally ripe one.

You can use them as a garnish for a fruit tart, in fruit salads, bowls of berries, on shortcakes, and for ice cream.

However, one of the most popular ways to eat them is made into jam every year.

Grown in Oregon

The state of Oregon in the United States is the largest producer of this fruit in the world. Since I live in Oregon, I can testify that they are so common as to be considered an invasive weed in areas. The thorny canes can grow 50 feet or more in a single year, and do not mind being cut back at all.

But the fruit is delicious. Look for wild blackberries for a more tart flavor and Marionberry (a named cultivar) for a richer flavor.
