Did you know that BC is one of the top high bush blueberry growing regions worldwide? Fresh or frozen, BC blueberries are summer’s essential ingredient, but they are also a versatile year-round staple. During summer, they’re available fresh in the produce section and during colder months look for frozen packages in your grocer’s freezer aisle. Be sure to look for the “BC Grown” label!
A sweet treat with so much more to them, blueberries are a good source of fibre and they contribute vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese, making them a good choice to help meet nutrient needs. #poweredbynature with antioxidants and nutrients, blueberries truly are nature’s superfood!
Visit Go Blue BC to join the fun!
