Berries are rich in anthocyanins (cyanidin, delphinidin, peonidin, petunidin, pelargonidin, and malvidin)
and other flavonoids (kaempferol and quercetin derivatives) (Szajdek and Borowska 2008, Seeram
2008). Every fruit has its own characteristic anthocyanin pattern, and the concentration of anthocyanins
is dependent on the varieties. Among berries, cranberries [Vaccinium macrocarpon] have been
particularly studied for providing bacterial anti-adhesion, urinary tract and antiinflammatory benefits
due to its rich content of proanthocyanidins and flavonoids (Neto 2007; Coté et al. 2010; Wang et al.
2012; McKay et al. 2015; McKay and Wilson 2016). Generally, the genus Vaccinium (esp. Blueberries)
and the juices thereof were in the focus of research (Borges et al. 2010b). Citrus contains vitamin C,
thiamin, folate, flavanones (hesperidin, naringin), carotenoids such as beta-carotene, alpha-carotene,
beta-cryptoxanthin, lutein zeaxanthin, and lycopene in red grapefruit, (Baghurst 2003; Benavente-García
and Castillo 2008; Marti et al. 2009; Cancalon 2016), finally limonoids are found in grapefruits (Manners
2007).
