If you’re asking about calories because you are concerned with weight gain then fresh cranberries are not really a concern. They are a lower glycemic food which means that the sugar or carbohydrate contained in this berry doesn’t really do much to spike your insulin, which is key when trying to lose weight.

Dried cranberries on the other hand, well, let’s just say they are more like candy than fruit by the time they are processed and packaged. Although they are delicious.

Hope this helps.
