concentrates as do so-called "nutritious" cakes using
pureed blueberries.
Chocolate makers have gotten on the antioxidant bandwagon, touting good health as another plus for their food.
The addition of blueberries makes chocolate even more
glamorous in chocolate port bites with blueberries, chocolate-covered blueberries and rich chocolate desserts.
Blueberries and dark chocolate co-star in cookies, pastries
and even cheese cakes. Blueberries provide an acidic note
that adds the perfect accent to rich desserts, chocolate
and otherwise. The blueberry image is used to imbue
products with a virtuous and planet-friendly aura.
US highbush blueberries continue to thrive with production acres, farming and processing efficiencies. Fresh
blueberry production begins in April and ends in late
September and early October. The peak of North
American frozen production is in June through August.
Highbush blueberries are marketed as both fresh and
frozen. Fresh blueberries are mainly harvested by hand.
Blueberries for the frozen market, known as process blueberries, are machine harvested.
Frozen blueberries, available year-round, are as flavorful
as fresh. Harvested blueberries are promptly frozen to
retain flavor and ensure freshness with good texture,
shape and color. With good volumes across the United
States, highbush blueberries provide opportunities for
manufacturers to incorporate the fruit into products.
With fruity flavor and a healthy profile, blueberries give
products lush taste, broad appeal and a clean label.
Virtually fat-free and low in sodium, carbohydrates and
cholesterol, blueberries are a delicious source of Vitamin
C and manganese.
Fresh fruits including blueberries contain many naturally
occurring antioxidants and consequently are a good
choice for consumers looking to protect their bodies
against the damaging effects of free radicals and chronic
diseases associated with the aging process. Blueberries
are also nutritionally dense, low in calories and a source
of fiber.
