A Great Source of Antioxidants

They may be tiny in size but Naturipe® blueberries are big on flavor and health benefits. Naturipe growers have been growing blueberries for generations on their farms. These families take tremendous pride in what they do and it shows. Blueberries are one of the few truly blue foods on earth, but they don’t start that way. They first appear white, turn red and finally blue, making them an
All-American berry
.

Naturipe blueberries are grown in many locations throughout North America and Canada from March through October, and in Chile, Peru, Uruguay, Argentina and Mexico during the winter months. Naturipe Farms offers conventional and organic blueberries year-round in a variety of package sizes, including our ready-to-eat blueberry snack packs.

Nutrition & Health

Blueberries are an excellent source of the antioxidant Vitamin C. In fact, they’re famous for it! Blueberries are often synonymous with the phrase “high in antioxidants.” These natural superfoods are also high in manganese, a nutrient that aids processing of cholesterol, carbohydrates and protein. What’s more, they’re a good source of dietary fiber, which helps you feel full faster and also may reduce the risk of heart disease.

{  How to Select, Store, & Handle  }

33-34°f

Pick blueberries that are plump, dent-free and blue. Try to purchase your blueberries from a refrigerated display.

Avoid blueberries that have red skin, as they are under-ripe, and blueberries do not continue to ripen after harvest.

You may notice a silvery sheen on your berries, which is a good thing; it’s a blueberry’s way of protecting itself from the harsh rays of the sun.

Store blueberries in the refrigerator. Do not wash them prior to refrigeration.

Simply rinse before serving.

When handled and stored properly in refrigeration, blueberries can stay fresh

10-14 days after purchase
