Blueberry

Lowbush blueberries (Vaccinium angustifolium) · Highbush blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum)

Blueberries are stars of the day – the ripe flower leaves a five-point star on each berry, too many to count and invisible at night. Because of this, blueberries contain a lot of vitamin A – carotene, which improves our eyesight in the dark. They are recommended for pilots and astronauts, but will also come in useful for those who more often count stars on a computer monitor. Alongside vitamin A, blueberries also hold a lot of other valuable vitamins, antioxidants and minerals that help combat signs of aging. Let’s give our bodies what they need, not just in July - the blueberry month - but all year round with the help of juice!

 

Blueberries have a positive effect on the body – they paint the tongue beautifully and make us healthier:

  • improve blood circulation

  • protect the body from blood clots – strokes and heart attacks

Interesting facts on blueberries:

  • The blueberry’s Latin name (Vaccinium angustifolium) comes from the Latin word vacca – cow, because in the year 1700, Captain James Cook noticed that cows are found of these berries.

  • When adding frozen blueberries to food, do not let them thaw! This will not only help retain the berries’ texture, but will also prevent them from colouring the food. 

  • In the USA, July is celebrated as National Blueberry Month. 

  • In the past, painters made purple paint from pine forest blueberries, and violet from spruce forest blueberries. 

  • Blueberry fields are rich in nectar. When they are in flower, bees carry about 2 kg of honey to each beehive.
