Dried blueberries are a powerful source of health-promoting nutrients because the nutritional benefits remain and are actually concentrated if you measure by volume (except for vitamin C).
Blueberries are native to North America and they played an important part in the American Indian diet. They used them to help slow the rate of spoilage of food, as well as for medicinal purposes.
Wild blueberries are smaller and have a more intense flavor. Since they are smaller that means you get more skin per ounce and since the skin is where the health promoting antioxidants are, you get more of them with these tiny berries. Blueberries help promote the production of collagen, so they are good for your heart, skin, eyes and brain.
It’s always good to have dried fruit, especially blueberries, on hand so you can add their flavor and nutrition to any meal. These wild blueberries plump up nicely in baked goods and oatmeal. You can also add them to yogurt, or toss them with green or quinoa salads. They also work well with wild salmon, another one of the 3 key SuperFoods.
