Heralding from South America, the blueberry is often referred to as one of the world’s top superfoods. 

Blueberries are a fantastic source of vitamin C and K and contain large amounts of fibre and potent antioxidants called anthocyanins. This delicious and nutritious fruit can also help improve the memory, lower the chance of heart attack and protect against heart disease.

As blueberries are made into jams, cereal bars, pies, and not forgetting the world famous blueberry muffin, there are a myriad of options to choose from when it comes to blueberry consumption. Blueberries give a perfect lift to a bowl of porridge or cereal in the morning. Alternatively, put them in a bowl for a desk snack or in your bag for days on the run. For a naughty but nice treat, they’re also great on waffles!
