Provides vitamins and minerals: Blueberries are a source of four essential nutrients – fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese. They also provide phytonutrients called polyphenols. This group includes anthocyanins (163.3 mg/100 g), which are compounds that give blueberries their blue color.
Good source of dietary fiber: Just one serving of blueberries can help you meet your daily fiber requirement! Dietary fiber may reduce the risk of heart disease and adds bulk to your diet, which may help you feel full faster.
Good source of vitamin C: One serving of blueberries provides 16% of your daily vitamin C requirement! Not only does vitamin C support immune health, but it is necessary for growth and repair of tissues and promotes healing for wounds.
Certified heart-healthy: Fresh and frozen blueberries are certified as heart-healthy through the American Heart Association’s® Heart-Check Food Certification Program. The program offers an easy, reliable way to identify heart-healthy foods that can be part of a balanced eating plan.
