Wild blueberries, are they all that different from conventional cultivated blueberries?
While there are some subtle nutritional differences between the wild and cultivated blueberry, the real difference has to do with their size! Wild blueberries are much smaller and look much darker in color in comparison. For example, say 1 cup holds around 80 cultivated blueberries, whereas 1 cup of wild blueberries would hold around 150 berries! Like most fruits the skin contains most of these nutrients our body thrives on. Because we can fit more blueberries in one cup of wild berries than the cultivated ones, we are receiving twice the antioxidants power in a cup.
Blueberries are a delicious way to gain antioxidants that in return protect the body from free radicals. These are unstable molecules (found in fried foods, air pollution, toxic chemicals like pesticides, cigarette smoke, etc.) that damage your cells and contribute to aging and diseases, such as cancer. Whether you like wild or cultivated berries enjoy them and think how amazing it is God has given us this sweet treat as a tool to help protect our bodies.
