Curiosity

The cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon, Ait.) belongs to the family of Ericaceae and is an evergreen plant of American origin with the appearance of a woody bush that can reach a height of 20 cm and a width of even 2 m. The plant finds its optimal environment in wet and marshy areas.

The blossoming takes place between May and June; the red fruits reach full ripeness in October - November. They are fairly large berries, in proportion to the size of the plant, from which the specific name "macrocarpon" derives, which means "large fruit".

The berry is grown to be consumed fresh or frozen, dried or processed to obtain compotes and juices. The fruit has a strong acidic component that remains of the derived products and contrasts pleasantly with the sweet taste contained in its pulp.

History

The consumption of cranberries is rather eradicated in the United States and in Canada, where they represent the food of winter traditions.

There are two different methods for the harvesting:

  • dry harvesting, consisting in the use of machines that rake the cranberries from the vines that are then transported by suitable means from the swamps
  • harvesting in water, consisting in detaching the fruits from the plant by a slight shaking, so that they can float on a water bed that prevents possible damage. The water used to flood a field is recycled to flood other fields connected by channels, small locks and dams.

Properties

Fruits and derived products are traditionally considered to have disinfectant and anti-inflammatory properties, particularly active in lower urinary tract infections, as well as for food purposes.

The use of this plant in the prevention and treatment of lower urinary tract infections has been documented since the 17th century. In particular, this would happen thanks to the proanthocyanidins of type A (PACs) of which the fruit is rich, which act by adhering to the tissues and forming a sort of "protective molecular layer" that contrasts and repels the adhesion of pathogenic bacteria1.

Although the term dietary fibre was not coined until 1953, it does not represent a new discovery and the laxative effect of fibre-rich foods has been known for a long time.

Fibre can be defined as the portion of plant cells that cannot be digested by human digestive enzymes and therefore cannot be absorbed into the intestine.

In most cases, it forms the wall of plant cells, but it is also present in the parenchyma and in some plant secretions.

Although it cannot be considered a nutrient, dietary fibre exerts functional and metabolic effects, making it an important component of the human diet.

Recent studies have highlighted that fibre develop a modest amount of energy equal to 2 kcal per gram.
