At just 80 calories per 250 ml or one-cup, tiny, potent Wild Blueberries are loaded with anthocyanins and pack a serious nutritional punch for every calorie consumed. They are naturally low in fat, high in fiber (16% of your daily value) and have no added sugar, sodium or refined starches. Wild Blueberries are also an excellent source of manganese, which is important for bone development. All of this makes Wild Blueberries a naturally nutrient-rich choice–a food that adds important dietary nutrients without adding a lot of extra “empty” calories.
Current obesity rates and associated health risks such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease have led the health authorities to encourage Canadians to cut down on foods with “empty calories” and replace them with nutrient-rich foods like Wild Blueberries. In fact, cutting calories without sacrificing nutrition is a wise weight-loss strategy…and one of the reasons we recommend you take a walk on the wild side and discover for yourself the power behind the tiny, Wild Blueberry.
