Strawberry Day!


Strawberries have a combination of nutrients making them a heart-healthy, diabetes-friendly, and inflammation-reducing food. Their high vitamin C content supports immune function and skin health, while their fiber content promotes digestive health. Including strawberries in your diet is not only a delight to the taste buds but also a boost to your health.


Dietvana would like to share some of the benefits of Strawberries, a nutrient-dense food, offering a wide range of vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial compounds in every bite.


Nutritional Benefits:

Vitamin C: Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, providing about 58.8 mg or 98% of the Daily Value (DV). Vitamin C is crucial for the growth and repair of tissues, the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.


Manganese: With 0.386 mg or 19% of the DV, manganese is a mineral important for bone development and the metabolism of amino acids, cholesterol, glucose, and carbohydrates.


Folate (Vitamin B9): Strawberries contain 24 µg of folate per 100 grams, about 6% of the DV. Folate is essential for normal tissue growth and cell function, and it's particularly important for pregnant women to support fetal development.


Potassium: Providing 153 mg or 4% of the DV, potassium is a mineral and electrolyte that helps regulate fluid balance, muscle contractions, and nerve signals.


Fiber: Strawberries offer 2 g of dietary fiber per 100 grams, approximately 8% of the DV. Fiber is vital for healthy digestion and can help prevent constipation, maintain a healthy weight, and lower the risk of heart disease.


Antioxidants and Phytochemicals: Apart from vitamins and minerals, strawberries are rich in antioxidants and phytochemicals such as flavonoids (including quercetin, kaempferol, and anthocyanins) and phenolic acids. These compounds reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, and they may protect against chronic diseases.


Caloric content: Strawberries are low in calories, with only 32 calories per 100 grams, making them a great snack for weight management.


Dietvana will personalized a menu for you, ensuring that every client receives the right balance of macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins, and fats) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) tailored to their body's requirements.
