Blueberries nutrition

You’ve probably heard all sorts of health claims about blueberries, and maybe heard the word super food thrown around here and there. It’s true: blueberries are chock full of health benefits! But what’s actually so great about these tiny blue orbs, and why should you make these blueberry recipes? Blueberries are:

  • Low in calories and fat. Blueberries have 80 calories per 1 cup serving, virtually no fat, and are low in sodium.
  • A source of vitamin C. A 1 cup serving of blueberries provides 16% of your daily vitamin C.
  • A good source of dietary fiber. Even just a handful of blueberries can help you meet your daily fiber requirement. What’s good about fiber? Fiber may reduce the risk of heart disease and may help you feel full faster.
  • High in manganese. Manganese helps the body process cholesterol and nutrients such as carbohydrates and protein.
