Happy Blue Year

Start the year off right with a daily dose of wild blue

Start your new year making healthy choices by incorporating wild blueberries into your daily diet.  With more antioxidants per serving than most other fruits, just ½ cup a day of this powerful superfruit helps to combat disease and promote healthy aging.  Available frozen year round, wild blueberries are easy and delicious:

  • Frozen wild blueberries are ready to eat in the freezer year round and can remain frozen for over two years without losing their flavor or nutritional value
  •  Quick frozen at harvest, wild blueberries foods actually retain their nutritional value longer than fresh because they are harvested at the height of their ripeness and nutritive value
  • Wild blueberries are known for their deep blue color, an indicator of high amounts of anthocyanin, a powerful antioxidant believed to protect against Alzheimer’s and promotevision health
  • Referred to as a “happy food” because of their low glycemic index, wild blueberries help maintain mood, energy and concentration throughout the day
  • A diet including blueberries can reverse short-term memory loss, improve motor skills and maintain brain health, among other benefits
