Health Benefits

1. Blueberries are not only popular, but also repeatedly ranked in the U.S. diet as having one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings. Antioxidants are essential to optimizing health by helping to combat the free radicals that can damage cellular structures as well as DNA. We recommend enjoying raw Michigan blueberries — rather than relying upon blueberries incorporated into baked desserts — because eating blueberries this way provides you with the best flavor and the greatest nutritional benefits.

2. Michigan Blueberries are low in fat, packed full of vitamin C, full of dietary fiber, full of phytonutrients, an excellent source of manganese. Michigan Blueberries may play a role in promoting good health. The following areas are where they could possibly be the most helpful:

  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Brain Health
  • Insulin Response
  • Cancer Risk Reduction
