The Wild Advantages: Not Just Blueberries, Wild Blueberries
All blueberries are not alike. Wild Blueberries have distinct advantages for ingredient users. These Wild Advantages include “Wild” Mystique, special size, extraordinary taste, superior performance, and antioxidant power. “Wild” Mystique refers to the unique geographic origin and natural growing conditions where Wild Blueberries prosper. Only in the fields and barrens of Downeast Maine and Canada does Nature produce Wild Blueberries. Wild Blueberries also have the natural ingredient advantage of being smaller than cultivated blueberries, delivering more berries per pound for better looking, better tasting products. The Wild Blueberry’s taste is unique, with a naturally delicious sweet, tangy flavor providing a true burst of flavor. Wild Blueberries provide the advantage of superior performance by maintaining their taste, texture, shape and deep blue color through processing and food preparation. They also freeze perfectly with quality and nutritional value intact for the frozen fruit retail sector in supermarkets. Known worldwide as a health icon, Nature endowed Wild Blueberries with more antioxidant capacity per serving than most other fruit ingredients including their cultivated blueberry cousins, making them a powerfully appealing anti-aging superfruit.
