“C” FOR YOURSELF!

The summery combo of fruits in our Tropical Sorbet does triple duty for your daily dose of vitamin C: One cup of sliced mango contains 67% of the reference daily intake (RDI); a cup of pineapple clocks in at an impressive 131%; and strawberries are the winner, with an RDI of a whopping 150%! Vitamin C is used in numerous essential bodily processes, such as the formation and maintenance of healthy bones, skin and blood vessels. It’s required for proper wound healing and has potent antioxidant properties. The body can’t store this vitamin, so you’ll need to consume C-rich foods (like these!) daily.
