Organic Blueberries (Jumbo size) 125g Chile
Highlights: Low in calories, but high in fibre, organic blueberries (Vaccinium caesariense) 蓝莓 Lán méi are considered a beneficial nutrient-dense food with one of the highest antioxidant capacities helping to protect against cell damage and cancer.
The blueberry’s origin is uncertain and wild blueberries are found in Spain, Northern Europe, Asia and N. America and certainly played an essential role in the diet of the nomadic hunter-gather tribes. However the first high bush blueberry was grown for commercial production in 1908 by Frederick Coville a USDA botanist in North America and the rest as they say is history…
Like other purple berries organic blueberries are rich in anthocyanins, flavonoid polyphenols and other beneficial phytochemicals. They appear to be especially good for the cardiovascular system as the combination of antioxidants and fibre helps protect cells and remove cholesterol from the body. Known for their support for eye health, they not only help to prevent macular degeneration, but also help maintain cognition and delay mental ageing.
