HEALTH BENEFITS AND FUN FACTS OF BLUEBERRIES

As one of the few fruits native to North America, blueberries have been enjoyed by Native Americans for hundreds of years.

They have also enjoyed great popularity around the world in cuisines from Asia to the Mediterranean.

Blueberries are not only popular, but also repeatedly ranked in the U.S. diet as having one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings.

Antioxidants are essential to optimizing health by helping to combat the free radicals that can damage cellular structures as well as DNA.

We recommend enjoying raw blueberries — rather than relying upon blueberries incorporated into baked desserts — because, like other fruits, raw blueberries provide you with the best flavor and the greatest nutritional benefits.
