Frozen blueberries are really great!

If you take your blueberries and freeze them, do you know what happens? You simply improve the already powerful antioxidant punch they have according to the latest study. The blue color in blueberries comes from anthocyanins – a group of antioxidant compounds. Freezing blueberries actually improves the availability of these antioxidants because the ice crystals that form during freezing restructure the plant tissues, making the anthocyanins more available. The best part? Even blueberries frozen for 5 months still retain their original potency. Blueberries help eliminate cancer-causing free radicals in the body and are great for your brain and nervous system along with the cardiovascular system, eyes and even the urinary tract. Could blueberries be one of the world’s healthiest food? Some people would say they are. Make mine organic of course!

It's really difficult to mess up just plain blueberries!
