Nutrition is the cornerstone to good health and good health leads to a longer and happier life.  Emerging research indicates that the antioxidant phytochemicals in superfoods such as berries work most effectively to combat disease and aging when delivered in combination. They have anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial properties. Essentially, they neutralize free radicals, the unstable molecules which are either generated by the body's metabolic processes or ingested e.g. via contaminated food. Free radicals damage cells and DNA, and over time lead to chronic degenerative diseases such as cataracts, arthritis and cancer. Pets who do not obtain sufficient amounts of antioxidants are at risk of developing these diseases later in life.

Eden Organic Dried Wild Blueberries 

Dried Wild Blueberries may be small, but scientific research shows they may have big powers of protection.

Cancer Prevention: A Univ. of Illinois study by Mary Ann Lila Smith, Ph.D., looked at a particular flavonoid (Flavonoids include anthocyanins, the natural substances responsible for giving blueberries their deep-blue color.) that inhibits an enzyme involved in promoting cancer. Of the fruits tested, Wild Blueberries showed the greatest anti-cancer activity. J of Food Science, Vol. 65, No. 2, 2000.

Anti-Aging: James Joseph, Ph. D., Chief of the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University, is working with blueberries to examine their potential to help improve motor skills and reverse the short-term memory loss that comes with aging. "The blueberry has emerged as a very powerful food in the aging battle," said Joseph. "Given the possibility that blueberries may reverse short-term memory loss and forestall other effects of aging, their potential may be very great."

Urinary Tract Health: Explains Rutgers scientist Amy Howell, PhD, blueberries, like cranberries, contain compounds that prevent the bacteria responsible for urinary tract infections from attaching to the bladder wall.

Vision: Wild Blueberries have very high concentrations of anthocyanin, a natural compound linked with reducing eyestrain and improving night vision.

Oxidative Stress:
USDA scientists recently concluded that eating Wild Blueberries helps to prevent oxidative stress. (J of the American College of Nutrition, Vol. 26, No. 2, 170-181, 2007) This study advances antioxidant research by moving beyond the measurement of antioxidants in foods to actual examination of the performance of specific fruits against oxidative stress in the body. Oxidative stress is linked to chronic diseases and aging. "We are confident that consumption of Wild Blueberries or other high antioxidant foods is going to be beneficial in fighting oxidative stress, "said lead scientist Ronald L. Prior, Ph.D., USDA Arkansas Children's Nutrition Center. "It's not just what you eat but when you eat it that matters. Phyto-chemicals in foods have varying degrees of bioavailability and generally are cleared from the blood 2-4 hours after they're eaten. Ensuring that your body has a steady supply of antioxidant-rich foods can help combat oxidative stress throughout the day." The study also found that eating a meal with no antioxidantsjust carbohydrates, fat or proteinlowers the antioxidant levels and causes oxidative stress. "You're deficit spending when you eat junk food. You need to continually consume antioxidant-rich foods to keep levels up for optimal health."


These blueberries are from low bush, wild grown blueberry fields, called 'barrens', in northern Quebec, Canada that have been organically managed since 1996. The area was once heavily forested, but the forest was long ago cut down. A few years after it was cleared, the area was full of native wild blueberries. In August the blueberries are handpicked, washed and cleaned to remove any leaves and twigs, sorted and quick frozen. When ready for drying, the blueberries are thawed and then infused by immersing them in organic apple juice concentrate that is circulated over them until they reach just the right sweetness or 'Brix'. The infused blueberries are then rinsed, low heat dried, and coated very lightly with a mist of organic sunflower oil to prevent clumping. The low heat drying is warm air circulated until they are dry enough to become shelf stable, requiring no refrigeration. It takes 4 pounds of fresh blueberries to produce 1 pound of dried.

Although there are more than 450 plants in the blueberry family Vaccinium, there are a few main types of blueberry plants indigenous to North America. The wild blueberry is native to northeastern North America growing from Minnesota to Maine and as far north as the Arctic. For the most part this variety is confined to growing in this cooler climatic area. The wild blueberry is a small, dwarf plant reaching only the height of 1 to 2 feet. The cultivated blueberry is a much taller bush planted in many different areas, and are maintained much like an olive grove or an orchard. Wild blueberry plants are not planted. They develop naturally from native existing stands and are simply managed. Although both types of blueberries contain healthful antioxidants, it is the wild, low bush blueberry that was recently rated #1 in antioxidant activity by the USDA. To determine the antioxidant activity of various foods, the USDA uses a system referred to as Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC). By testing the ability of foods and other compounds to subdue oxygen free radicals, the USDA was able to determine each compound's antioxidant capability. The ORAC value of wild blueberries is 2,400, the highest of 20 common fruits rated.

For centuries wild blueberries were gathered from the fields, forests and bogs of North America by Native American tribes. These tiny berries were a valuable food source used in stews, soups, cooked with ground corn and sweetened with maple syrup or honey, and made into a type of jerky with deer meat, which helped many survive the long, cold northern winters. The blossom end or calyx of each berry forms the shape of a perfect five pointed star. Native Americans called it the 'star berry', and the elders of the tribe often told stories of how the Great Spirit brought the 'star berries' so that the children could relieve their hunger during a famine. They used the juice of the berries to ease what they called 'old coughs', and to dye rugs, blankets, and clothing. They also made smoked berries, sun dried berries, and blueberry powder to flavor meats. They even used the leaves and roots to make teas. When the Pilgrims arrived, the Native Americans taught them how to grow and use native plants to help them survive. One such plant was the wild blueberry. They taught them how to sun dry and store them for the winter. Over time the berries became an important food source for the early settlers.
