Blueberries are a nutritious healthy snack. Eat them as they are or add them to your favourite trail mix, cereal, muesli or smoothie. Soaked in hot water they make a wonderful tea.

  • Blueberries contain a plant compound called anthocyanin. This gives blueberries both their blue color and many of their health benefits.
  • Blueberries can help heart health, bone strength, skin health, blood pressure, diabetes management, cancer prevention, and mental health.
  • One cup of blueberries provides 24 percent of a person recommended daily allowance of vitamin C.
  • Use blueberries to top waffles, pancakes, yogurt, oatmeal, or cereal, blend them in a smoothie or syrup, or fold them into muffins and sweet breads.
  • People who use blood-thinners, such as warfarin, should speak to their doctor before increasing their intake of blueberries, as the high vitamin K content can affect blood clotting.

A type of flavonoid called anthocyanin gives blueberries many of their health benefits. Flavonoids are plant compounds that often have a powerful antioxidant effect.

Anthocyanin is responsible for the blueberry's characteristic blue color. It also contributes to the numerous advantages of blueberries.
