It's a berry
It contains anti-oxidants (because otherwise it would rot) like other berries. It has other chemicals to protect itself against disease that we have evolved to use as well, think of anti-bacterial chemicals and such. Comparable to blackberries or blueberries nutrition wise, too bad we only get the processed juice so I would pick whole blackberries (free this time of the year) over it any day. It has a great taste, that's for sure though.
