- They are dynamos of Dietary fibre: Since the body requires a lot of fibre. It is a good source to keep your cholesterol in check.
- They are an Anti-oxidants: They serve as the best antioxidant source as compared to other food.
- Also, excellent source of Manganese: Manganese is very essential for the bone development and also, it converts fats, proteins and carbohydrates into energy.
