Driscoll's strawberries are not genetically modified and are organic and naturally grown and non GMO.

The reason Driscoll strawberries are white inside is because the inside of the Driscoll strawberries don't see as much sun.

With Driscoll strawberries there's also a natural mutation that occurs that removes the presence of anthocyanin, the flavonoid compound which gives strawberries the red hue.

If you eat too many strawberries in one sitting it can lead to diarrhea, gas, bloating, stomach pain and other digestive symptoms.

Strawberries are healthy to eat and okay to eat everyday although too many can cause digestive issues.

It's recommended that you eat up to 1 cup or 8 medium sized strawberries a day.

However you can eat some more if it does not cause any digestive issues.

Strawberries are a great source of antioxidants including vitamin C, which can support a healthy immune system and may lower your chances of getting sick when you're around germs.

They may also help curb inflammation in the body, manage your blood sugar, and guard you against health conditions like high cholesterol, cancer, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

Strawberries are packed with antioxidants and essential nutrients that can reduce inflammation, support heart health, boost cognitive function, aid digestion and help regulate blood sugar.

While strawberries are generally safe for most individuals, it's essential to be mindful of potential allergies or sensitivities.

Considering how sweet and delicious they are, strawberries are surprisingly low in sugar.

A cup of raw strawberries has about 7 g of sugar and more than 100% of the recommended daily vitamin C intake.
