Blueberry Health Facts
One of the blueberry health facts that is often overlooked is it being a source of resveratrol like red wine is. Just like the grape, the blueberry’s skin protects its antioxidants from becoming oxidized making it the perfect antioxidant delivery system for your body.
The blueberry belongs to the same family as the rhododendron, huckleberry and bilberry (ericaceae). Blueberries are larger than the other two and have many small seeds that are not noticeable when eaten.
Did you know Blueberries are the most widely grown fruit crop in the U.S.? (You won’t often find blueberry health facts in Trivial Pursuit though.) And you’ll be happy to know, most of the world’s blueberries come from North America.
The presence of resveratrol isn’t the only blueberry health fact that will be on the quiz, however. Explore to learn more about blueberries or go to the contact form and just ask.
