And since most of the supernutrients are in the skin, one cup of wild blueberries has twice the antioxidant power as one cup of cultivated blueberries.

"Wild blueberries were found to have the highest level of antioxidants in a study by the USDA of 40 fruits and vegetables. It is important to make them part of your diet, especially as you age, since your body's defenses weaken and free radicals can cause more damage."

"A research project out of the University of Maine says wild blueberries are good for digestion. Professor Vivian Wu led a team of researchers that looked at how wild low-bush blueberries affected the digestive health in rats. For six weeks, they fed one group of rats a control diet and another group a blueberry-enriched diet. They found that a plant fiber in the blueberries promotes the growth of good bacteria in the colon, thereby promoting healthy digestion."

More than just a healthy berry

Our group is taking a holistic approach to the potential health benefits in all constituents of the blueberry plant and fruit. Over time, we intend to seek opportunities to commercialize healthful bioactive ingredients (polyphenols) from more than just the IQF fruit.
