“Wild blueberries—the tiny berry with big health benefits!”

Wild (lowbush) blueberries—not to be confused with cultivated (highbush) blueberries—also known as Vaccinium angustifolium, are small berries that grow wild in abundance throughout Quebec and are known for their dark blue colour and sweet taste.
Wild blueberries contain a range of polyphenols which have been characterized and whose health benefits have been studied. The polyphenolic profile (using HPLC analysis) of wild blueberries is unique and contains 21 identifiable peaks, whereas cultivated blueberries only contain 15.
Scientific and clinical studies have been conducted on the bioactive content and health promoting components of wild blueberries in the following areas:

  • Blood sugar management and diabetes
  • Oxidative stress and reduced cardiovascular risk
  • Neurological health
  • Oral and gum health
  • Eye health
