Blueberries Are In...Again

Blueberries Are In...Again

Blueberries, they’ve been around forever, right? Well, maybe not. Did you know the commercial farming of blueberries is fairly recent? They were first sold as a commercial crop in 1911. Originally, explorers noted blueberries in the wild but called them star berries because of the little star on top and used them as a dye. Since then blueberries have grown exponentially, becoming the second most popular fruit! But even more recently, blueberries have seen an incredible spike. Why, might you ask? One word: Superfood. 

Superfood is a trendy word, recently popping up in the last few years that simply describes food that has a lot of great nutrients and is good for your health. Sorry, no special powers, just great benefits. Blueberries are considered a superfood because they are a great source of Vitamin C, potassium, phosphorus, iron, and fiber, phew! Blueberries are also known to contain disease-fighting antioxidants that can help prevent heart disease and improve brain health, sign us up!

It’s no wonder there’s been a rise in blueberry popularity. In fact, the use of blueberries in new product development has seen a 101% growth over the past 10 years globally. Unfortunately, many of these companies trying to capitalize on the blueberry health mania aren’t using real blueberries.
