Wild blueberries-Go wild with the superstars of frozen fruit
Stock up on a superfood that’s a no-brainer: Wild Blueberries have superior antioxidant capacity compared with other fruits and veggies. Best of all, these little blue powerhouses from Maine and Canada are also incredibly convenient, thanks to their year-round availability in your grocer’s frozen fruit section. They’re just as healthy as fresh and may retain their nutritional value longer.
Here are two quick tips to help you pack a powerful nutritious punch into your diet:
—Make sure they say wild: Check the bag to ensure you’re getting authentic, frozen-fresh Wild Blueberries. If the word “Wild” isn’t on the front of the package, scan the list of ingredients on the back.
—Check the size: Be sure to select the little wild ones. When in doubt, feel the berries in the bag—if they’re “pea-sized,” you’ve got the wild ones.
With twice the antioxidant capacity of larger, cultivated blueberries, Wild Blueberries freeze perfectly, retaining their superior quality, color and sweet, tangy flavor.
