    Anything with ‘berry at the end of the word is good by me!! I love them little devils and had no idea that they had all those good things in them. Although not exactly sure what they all are,(Anthocyanins,Quercetin,Chlorogenic acid,Lutein,Kaemferol), I am hoping that if you put them in this post they are all good for me. I consider myself well read in the subject of health but all those items are new to me. Perhaps you can do a post on just what all those long words are?

    Again thank you for the post and hard work you put into enlightening us on blueberries.

    At first, I thought you were going to say that blueberries were fattening! I was going to be very unhappy LOL. I love blueberries and I knew they had benefits. You just solidified that for me. I like to freeze them and then eat them as a snack 🙂

      Haha, that was my intention, and you are not the first person to get a nice surprise my friend lol. Yea freezing them is cool mate as they are one of the select few foods that the nutrition content doesn’t change all that much during the process.And, oh yes, they do have a lot of benefits, don’t they 🙂

    Blueberries are my favourite berry, even my dog loves them! I have wonderful memories picking them from the forest in Finland with my family.

    I believe they are really good in a fight against cancer, their free radicals fighting antioxidants, what is there not to love? My favourite is to top a 10% full fat (yep, not getting fat from it) Greek yogurt with a spoonful of honey and 250g of blueberry goodness! Great midday snack or a breakfast.

          haha typical bloke, and they’ll be right as long as they are washed. I mainly wash ALL my wild berries just in case animals in passing have peed on them lol.

    Reading the title of your post I got very concerned as I LOVE blueberries! They are one of my favorite fruits. It’s nice to know I wasn’t misled about the benefits of eating them. I had no idea, however, that they contained fiber; that’s great!! This is a great post. Thank you for all the information 🙂

      Oh mate you are most welcome 🙂 Yes they do and I thoroughly researched the article first before I posted it, as I was surprised by this too. But I guess we should just look at it as a great added bonus. Thanks for the kind comment Katie.

    Hi Simon, that you for this highly informative post on blueberries. I live in a country where blueberries are not grown locally (well at least not to my knowledge) and so the blueberries that I see being sold in the stores are imported and therefore very expensive. But I can see that this is a must-have fruit! For all the reasons you stated above. So, my questions are: do these blueberries come in vitamin tablets and is there any particular brand that you recommend? Also, what other fruit would you recommend in place of blueberries for people in my situation? Thanks!

    I love blueberry for the taste. But little did I know that it has such high content of nutrients. Probably include it in part of my healthy plan in 2017. As for the not fattening part, I guess that’s a bonus.

    1. Simon Watson Post author

      haha, yea there is only minimal fat content so eating them is awesome and you get the health benefits as well. An all around good food choice to make so, here’s to a successful 2017 my friend!
