blueberry season

There’s no need to wait for the beginning of the blueberry season to experience the goodness of blues year-round – with frozen and dried USA Highbush Blueberries, the tiny but mighty fruit will be there for you through any ups and downs.

The new campaign “The Blues That Make You Feel Good” by the U.S. Highbush Blueberries Council highlights the goodness and benefits of dried and frozen blueberries, available all year.

Not only are these blueberries good for your tastebuds, but they are also good for your overall health too. Our favourite boost of blue is a good source of fibre, vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese.

Blueberries also contain a type of flavonoid called anthocyanin, which has antioxidant properties that can help boost a person’s immune system. A 2016 study also showed that flavonoids play an essential role in the respiratory tract’s immune defence system.

Dried American blueberries have a long shelf-life, whereas frozen ones have a lifespan of up to 10 months in the freezer without sacrificing any of their incredible nutrients or flavour.

Dried blueberries have the same amount of antioxidants as fresh ones. Dried blueberries pack a nutritional punch, being low in sodium and calories. A good source of fibre, they are also an ideal food as they have a low glycaemic index.

Studies also show that frozen blueberries have their powerful antioxidants more available to the human body. This makes it easier for you to enjoy the blue powerhouses year-round.

Versatile enough to work into breakfast, lunch, dinner, or simply a healthy snack, the bitesize fruits are low in sodium and have virtually no fat. It’s no wonder that this little dynamo is the favourite berry for most!

“The U.S. is one of the largest producers for blueberries worldwide due to our perfect climate and soil for this berry, and we are very proud to be able to share these delicious and nutritious berries with the rest of the world.

We hope to continue encouraging people to lead a more fulfilling and healthier life with our precious blueberries.”Retna Malar, representative of US Highbush Blueberry Council in Malaysia.

Blue for Your Everyday Meal

Providing key minerals and vitamins with just 80 calories per serving, these blueberries are not only healthy but completely versatile too, making them the top choice for everyday meals. The fiber from blueberries helps keep cholesterol in check. In contrast, manganese helps promote bone development, making it a healthy and nutritious option for all ages.

While ingesting blueberries has many benefits, you can also incorporate them into your beauty routine. Chock full of antioxidants, such as Omega 3 fatty acids and natural antioxidants that assist in healing the skin, the fruit is a popular ingredient in moisturizers and serums.
