Blueberry powder is a nutritional powerhouse made from dried, ground wild blueberries. It packs all the health benefits of fresh berries - vitamins, minerals, antioxidants - in an easy to use powder form.
Blueberry powder has become popular because it has a longer shelf life than fresh berries, retains more nutrients due to gentle freeze drying process, and offers great convenience for cooking and baking.
