Cranberry juice is often recommended for the prevention and treatment of urinary tract and bladder infections, but the tiny fruits have more many more health benefits. A 2009 study published in the "Health Studies Journal" reports that low-sugar dried cranberries can help regulate blood sugar levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes. A 2010 study published in the "Journal of Food Science" found that dried cranberries retain many of their antioxidants when they are freeze-dried, hot air-dried or vacuum-microwave dried. The antioxidants in dried cranberries can help reduce inflammation, cutting your risk of chronic health problems, such as heart disease and cancer.
Dried cranberries often contain large amounts of added sugar, which helps preserve the fruit and balance out the fruit's natural tart flavor. So if sugar is a concern, then you will have to look for low-sugar dried cranberries to reduce the sugar in these biscotti
