LET IT JUJU-BE Berries: set to be bigger than The Beatles?
We’ve finally learned how to pronounce acai, added pond (OK, spirulina, same difference) to our smoothies and convinced ourselves that turmeric lattes are better than a regular cup of Joe. And now there’s a new superfood in town to get our tastebuds (and vocabulary) around: the jujube. Thankfully fairly easy to pronounce (joo-joob), this berry gives us 115% of our RDA of vitamin C,* plus minerals, phytonutrients and 18 of the 24 amino acids our bodies need to build muscle and function properly. Even better news? They don’t taste like your granddad’s insoles – eaten fresh, they’re akin to a sweet apple. You can get dried ones (which taste like dates) to snack on from Ocado.com (£1.99). Maybe this is one health craze that’ll actually be a hit.
