Raspberry Ketone is a natural phenolic compound that gives raspberries their powerful aroma. This substance is found in small quantity in berries (blackberries, cranberries, raspberries), and kiwis. There is only about 1-4 mg of raspberry ketones in a kilogram of red raspberry. Thus, it would be impossible to eat enough raspberries to see noticeable benefits. It has a long history of use in cosmetics and as a flavoring in processed food. Only recently, it became popular as a weight loss supplement.
