Cranberry and Mango Chutney

Hai friends today i am coming with the Cranberry and Mango Chutney.This i saw in the google search i really love this and give a try.I really enjoy the chutney.Love to have with plain steamed rice.

The  Raw cranberries are a source of polyphenol antioxidants.Cranberries have been making a lot of health news recently – it seems they are good for almost everything! This is great for low carbers, because they pack a lot of nutrition, fiber, and flavor into a package without many carbohydrates. Half a cup of whole cranberries has 4 grams of effective carbohydrate, plus 2 grams of fiber, 1/3 of which is soluble (the soluble fiber is what makes the “gel” when you cook cranberries).

 Antioxidants: In study after study, cranberries are coming out at or near the top of the antioxidant heap. They are particularly rich in polyphenols, and have a lot of other helpful phytochemicals as well. These chemicals probably explain some of the studies showing cranberries' health benefits, including:
  • Prevention and treatment of urinary tract infections (tehy are antibacterial and also keep bacteria from “sticking” to the inside of the bladder and ureters).
  • Similar effects in the GI tract – help prevent bacteria from causing food-borne illness.
  • Similar effects in the mouth – may help prevent tooth decay by discouraging bacteria and preventing them from “sticking”.
  • Prevention of the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, which may help prevent atherosclerosis.
  • Improves blood vessel function in people with atherosclerosis.
