BLUEBERRIES - Kosher/Gluten Free

BLUE-5

Description:

These delicious berries grow on bushes, both cultivated and in the wild. Although wild Blueberries are smaller and a much more expensive favorite of gourmet cooks, it is the cultivated berries that make their way into the food service industry. Dried Blueberries retain their delicate, sweet flavor and allow usage when seasonal harvests are over. Blueberries contain antioxidants which have been found to reduce the risks of certain cancers. It has also been suggested that Blueberries are significant for reducing the degradation of brain function as well as lowering stroke damage in animals. Additional studies have found that Blueberries have health benefits such as lowering cholesterol and lipid levels in the blood as well as increasing night vision.  The amazing blueberry is full of health benefits for all!
