Health Benefits of Freeze Dried

Ohio State University wrote an article about a study that they did using freeze dried black raspberries. They determined that:

BLACK RASPBERRIES A POTENTIALLY POWERFUL AGENT IN FIGHT AGAINST COLON CANCER


"Fresh black raspberries are undoubtedly beneficial, but they are also expensive and can be hard to come by. Freeze-dried berries have as much nutritional content as fresh berries do, but the freeze-dried version isn't readily available to consumers, Stoner said. He tells people to hold off on getting discouraged, though.
“The results of this study would translate in humans to eating two large bowls -- or four cups -- of fresh black raspberries each day,” he said. “That may seem a bit extreme. People need to know that these animals are given whopping doses of a carcinogen. It’s conceivable that a much lower dose would be effective in humans.”
It’s also good to keep in mind that the National Cancer Institute continues to recommend four to six helpings of fruits and vegetables each day. “We’re just suggesting that people make one of those helpings berries,” Stoner said." (http://researchnews.osu.edu/archive/brberry.htm)
