Aside from being one of our most nutrient-rich fruits, naturally sweet and delightful snacks, blueberries are one of our most popular berries. Typically dried at the peak of freshness you can now enjoy the refreshing taste of blueberries all year long.

Part of what provides blueberries with their spectacular color and flavor is their unique combination of phytonutrients. Studies have shown that once absorbed, pterostilbene spends up to five times longer in our body before being metabolized. Pterostilbene’s longer-lasting characteristic gives it more time to pass on its many health benefits. Since few commonly eaten foods are as rich in pterostilbene as blueberries, blueberries ability to bolster our health is, even more enduring than previously believed.

We love snacking on dried blueberries and recommend you give them a try straight out of the bag. Enjoy them as a healthy snack, use them in baking, or sprinkle them over salads. A nutritional powerhouse, dried blueberries come loaded with antioxidants, dietary fiber, and vitamins.
