In the last years several wild fruits were considered as valuable sources of bioactive molecules as vitamin C, benzoic acid, anthocyanins etc. These compounds have a series of health benefits. For better pharmaceutical use of the plants, it is important to study them from the chemical and compositional point of view. Cranberry species are largely represented in the European, Asia and North America flora and various parts of the fruits are used in traditional medicine. The fruits are rich in anthocyanin, flavonoids, polyphenol, vitamin C and acids such as ascorbic acid. In the last year, FT-IR spectroscopy has been introduced as a very efficient and non-destructive analytical tool for the reliable way to determine the functional groups of three compenents.
