What are Blueberries?

Blueberries are a species of shrub in the Ericaceae family. This plant produces small, dark blue berries that are commonly called blueberries. Blueberries are native to northern European countries and North America, but can be cultivated in many regions of the world. These berries are very popular in cooking, both sweet and savoury, and are also known for their many health benefits due to their richness in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Blueberries can be bought fresh or frozen, as well as in the form of juices, syrups or dietary supplements.

Where to find blueberries and how to choose them

Blueberries are a very common berry in Northern European and North American countries. In Italy, on the other hand, they are mainly found in Trentino Alto Adige and in some regions of Central and Southern Italy.

When choosing blueberries, it is important to look for the freshest and ripest ones possible. Ripe blueberries should have a firm texture and uniform colour. Also, it is best to avoid those that have spots or mould.

The health benefits of blueberries

The blueberry is known for its many health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and anti-cancer. In addition, it can help improve heart health, brain function and digestion.

Blueberry also contains anthocyanins, which are natural pigments that give the fruit its characteristic colour. These pigments have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
