What makes a Wild Blueberry the blueberriest of berries?
While all blueberries are considered superfoods— nutrient dense while staying low in calories— Wild Blueberries are SUPER superfoods! Particularly rich in manganese, they’re only about 71 calories per cup.
One of North America’s few native berries (there are only three!), Wild Blueberries are harvested commercially only in the sandy soils of Maine and Canada. To protect themselves from their harsh growing climate, Wild Blueberries develop a potent punch of phytochemicals; that antioxidant power is passed on to us when we eat them. Wild Blueberries also carry anti-inflammatory properties that may help protect against cancer, heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
They’re just more bang for your berry!
Small but full of intense flavor, Wild Blueberries give you more than twice the number of berries per pound compared with cultivated blueberries. A higher skin to pulp ratio means less water and more antioxidant-rich pigment for a healthier, better freezing berry and baked goods with more berries in every bite!
You can find Wild Blueberries in your grocer’s freezer, or in Costco, BJs, Walmart and Whole Foods. (Retailers are listed here.)
