All blueberries are superfoods, but Wyman’s wild blueberries, pack a much bigger nutrition punch than your typical cultivated blueberry. They even taste better!
Let’s talk about Wyman’s Wild Blueberries
In general, wild blueberries are smaller in size and they actually stay whole when you cook them. Which makes Wyman’s wild blueberries perfect for recipes such as Blueberry Waffles, Blueberry Pancakes, and Blueberry Custard.
Wild blueberries also make the absolute best blueberry muffins!
Consider the ORAC Value
Small but mighty, wild blueberries have a very high total antioxidant capacity (ORAC). In fact, wild blueberries are higher than almost all of the typical fruits and vegetables you see at the grocery store.
Compared to cultivated blueberries, wild blueberries have a considerably higher ORAC value. The higher the ORAC value of a food the more powerful that food is at slowing the aging process, fighting disease, reducing inflammation and preserving health. You can learn more about the differences here.
Powerful Antioxidants Found – Wild Better than Cultivated
Anthocyanin is one of the super powerful antioxidants found in wild blueberries and is believed to protect against brain aging. In fact, in the first human study of its kind, researchers demonstrated that anthocyanin-rich Wild Blueberries are highly beneficial in maintaining memory function.
The study, conducted by a team at the University of Cincinnati, confirmed two very important things. Wild Blueberry supplemented diets improve memory function and mood in older adults with early memory decline. (Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. 2010; 58, 3996-4000)

You can save the wild blueberry juice for making smoothies. And speaking of smoothies, this is a great Wild Blueberry Smoothie Recipe. Just substitute the milk for coconut milk instead.
Where can you Buy Wyman’s Wild Blueberries?
Unless you live in Maine, Atlantic Canada or Quebec, chances are that your local supermarket probably will not regularly stock fresh wild blueberries. So, if you want wild blueberries, you will most likely have to go for frozen.
They have started popping up in our local Target grocery section and at our local Publix. Be sure to check your local stores first since it’s much less expensive to buy them locally.
Luckily, Wyman’s wild blueberries are available for sale online and in grocery stores across our country. They even sell them in bulk at Costco.
