Mulberries are a source of resveratrol, a plant compound also found in red wine grapes, which helps starve cancer cells by inhibiting the action of a protein called nuclear factor-kappa B. Research shows that resveratrol blocks the action of cancer-causing agents, inhibits tumor growth and development, and causes precancerous cells to return to a normal, healthy state. Resveratrol, which functions as both an antioxidant and an anticoagulant, also shows promise in controlling heart disease, based on the results of cell cultures and animal studies.
Dried mulberries are somewhat crunchy, like figs. They can be eaten as is, providing a refreshing alternative to raisins or other dried berries, or used to make a mulberry candy (grind them in the blender, mix in nut butter, and sweeten to taste). They are especially delicious in yogurt or with granola.
