Spurred on by favorable media coverage and recent research showing the supremacy of blueberries’ antioxidant protection, consumer interest in blueberries has steadily risen over the past decade. NP Nutra, a leading manufacturer of nutraceuticals, has launched a new, premium quality, freeze dried, blueberry product—BlueberrySante™.
BlueberrySante™ will provide supplement and functional foods companies the raw ingredients they need to satisfy consumers’ demands for the antioxidant power of blueberries at an affordable price. Cultivated in the lush farmlands of South America and then freeze dried, BlueberrySante™ maximally preserves blueberries’ remarkable phytonutrient profile.
Blueberries are a key ingredient in new product development. With favorable coverage in the mainstream press, such as Prevention and Time magazine, they are readily recognized for their wonderful health benefits. The excellent taste of blueberries helps further their market potential.
The striking indigo color of blueberries reveals a potent blend of natural antioxidant protection, including anythocyanins, proanthocyanins, resveratrol, flavonols, pterostilbene, kaempferol, and tannins.
With such a wide array of health benefits, blueberries have readily gained superfood status. They are low in calories and have a low Glycemic Load. Some of the notable constituents of blueberries include zeaxanthin and luetin, high levels of manganese, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K and dietary fiber.
