Lowbush Blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium)
Northern Highbush Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum)
Blueberries is a pea-size berries growing on low-level bushes, produces green berries that turn into bluish or purple hue when ripe. Blueberries are present in many parts of world, including North America, Europe and Asia with cooler climate and the harvest period of blueberries falls between May to August of the year.
Blueberries have a sweet taste when mature, some comes with variable acidity. It goes bad very quickly upon harvest, so blueberries are commonly sold either fresh, or processed into individually quick frozen (IQF) fruit, puree, juice or dried or infused berries. These prolong the shelf life of the berries and offer wider application for consumer goods, such as to be made into condiments like jellies, pudding, jam, muffins, snack foods or as additive in breakfast cereals.
We provide practical, easy & consistent on food processing application.

Blueberries consist of:
- 14% carbohydrates
- 0.7% protein
- 0.3% fat
- 84% water
The major phytochemicals in blueberries are polyphenols, including anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, other flavonoids, phenolic acids and stilbene derivatives.
Blueberries are rich in polyphenols and exhibit extremely high antioxidant capacity.
Blueberries are among the richest fruits in ascorbic acid. The content is usually in quite wide intervals, between 10–100 mg/100 g (depending on storage, longer storage time decreases the ascorbic acid concentration)
High Standard Product Quality Control
Decrease cardiovascular risk factors in obese individuals
|Randomized single-blinded controlled trial|
|Subject||Obese individuals (n = 48)|
|Dosage||consumed freeze-dried blueberry beverage (50 g freeze-dried blueberries, approximately 350 g fresh blueberries)|
|Parameters analyzed||Anthropometric and blood pressure measurements|
Table 1: Change in anthropometrics, blood pressure, and serum glucose and lipid concentrations in participants with metabolic syndrome after 8-week supplementations with freeze-dried blueberries or control treatment.
Table 2: Change in plasma biomarkers of oxidative stress and inflammation in participants with metabolic syndrome after 8-wk supplementation with freeze-dried blueberries or control treatment.
***Biomarkers of lipid and lipoprotein oxidation such as MDA and ox-LDL levels are elevated in population with abdominal adiposity and metabolic syndrome and have also been associated with coronary artery disease.
In our 8-wk study, decreases in plasma ox-LDL and serum MDA and HNE levels were significantly greater in the blueberry-supplemented group than in controls.
Increase antioxidant level in body
|Single-blind crossover design|
|Subject||Healthy individuals (n = 5)|
|Groups||Day 1: Control supplementation (digestible carbohydrate) (dissolved in 500 mL of water) + high fat meal (853 calories)
Day 7: Blueberry extract supplementation + high fat meal (853 calories)
|Dosage||100 g freeze-dried blueberries extract (containing 1.20g of total anthocyanins)|
|Parameters analyzed||Blood sample analysis & Serum lipid-soluble antioxidant status|
Before consumption of blueberries = no anthocyanin is detected in the blood
After consumption of blueberries = contained most of the 25 anthocyanins (3-galactoside, delphinidin 3-arabinoside, cyanidin 3-glucoside, petunidin 3-galactoside, cyanidin 3-arabinoside, petunidin 3-glucoside, peonidin 3-arabinoside, malvidin 3-galactoside, and malvidin 3-glucoside) in blood serum.
Figure 1: Chromatograms of blood serum extracts for a human subject before (A) and 1 hour (B) and 3 hours (C) after blueberry extract ingestion. (D) shows the peak identities of different anthocyanins.
The blueberry treatment appeared to prevent a mean decrease in serum antioxidant capacity as experienced in control group.
