Independent Testing Confirms Superior Nutrition

Blueberries are rich in vitamin C and are naturally low in fat, cholesterol and sodium. Blueberries contain iron, potassium and other important minerals including zinc, iron and magnesium, and are a good source of dietary fiber. The health benefits of blueberries are being actively researched, with amazing results. Blueberries are packed with nutrients and flavor, yet very low in calories. Recently, researchers at Tufts University analyzed 60 fruits and vegetables for their antioxidant capability. Blueberries came out on top, rating highest in their capacity to destroy free radicals.
