Dried cranberries are literally just cranberries that have had their water content removed. In general, one cup of fresh fruit becomes a quarter cup of dried fruit. This means that a quarter cup is a serving size for dried fruit, like cranberries.
Drying cranberries can involve a variety of different processes, including sun drying, hot-air drying, freeze drying, vacuum drying and a variety of other more high-tech drying techniques. Each method results in the retention of different amounts of nutrients in the cranberries. In general, air-drying methods allow for fewer nutrients to be retained in your dried fruits.
Like other dried fruits, dried cranberries are known for being a good source of fiber. Each quarter-cup sized serving (40 grams) has 8 percent of the daily value for fiber, in addition to 6 percent of the recommended daily value for vitamin E. They also contain a variety of other nutritive compounds, from essential amino acids to nutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin.
Dried cranberries have small amounts (between 1 and 4 percent) of several vitamins as well, including vitamin A, B-complex vitamins and vitamin K. In addition, they contain small amounts of minerals like copper, iron and manganese.
