Super qualities of blueberries:

Blueberries are high in antioxidants, and considered a ‘superfood’.

Tip for using frozen berries:

Blueberries are delicious fresh or frozen. If using frozen berries in your recipes don’t thaw them; just use them straight from the freezer. This will prevent the berries from splitting and ‘bleeding’ into the mixture. Fresh or frozen, blueberries are delicate, so make sure you fold or mix them gently into your mixture.
