FRESH BLUEBERRIES OR FROZEN BLUEBERRIES

WHICH ARE HEALTHIER FRESH BLUEBERRIES OR FROZEN BLUEBERRIES?

In recent studies, it has been shown that both fresh blueberries and frozen blueberry are healthy in their own way. Frozen blueberries have a similar antioxidant capacity as the ones found in fresh berries; however, they contain less water which can result to an increase of antioxidants per calorie consumed. On the other hand, because there is more water content than normal for frozen fruit, freezing them will not change certain nutrients such as vitamin C or thiamin. In contrast, when you freeze fresh blueberries some vitamins like vitamin C decrease by 70% while others such as folate increases by 80%. The quality of each type depends on how long it’s been stored before consumption: over time substances like sugar molecules form ice crystals which destroy cell walls of the blueberries.

Health benefits of blueberries result in a powerhouse for antioxidants, help maintain good eye health thanks to the high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin in blueberries, promote healthy digestion by aiding absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K.
