Prince Edward Island’s wild blueberries have existed for over 10,000 years. Prior to this, PEI was connected to the main land by a large valley plain. When the sea level rose, the Island was formed. The retreating glaciers scoured the earth and removed much of the soil. Only the hardiest of plants survived and one of the hardiest was the wild blueberry. It was the high concentration flavonoid anthocyanin, a phytochemical found in blue pigmented fruit which gave the wild blueberry a powerful antioxidant to help it survive in the harsh conditions. This is the reason wild blueberries have more antioxidants than regular blueberries. So when you eat the wild blueberry you are gaining all these extra antioxidant benefits.

The Wild Blueberry has an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) level of 9621. How do other fruits compare? Look at the chart below.  Read the report. (see blueberries pg. 18)
