Blueberries are some of the healthiest, tastiest and most versatile fruits available.
SONOMA, CA (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
A new and insightful nutritional brochure extolling the benefits of fresh winter blueberries is being offered by the Chilean Blueberry Committee, a division of the Chilean Fresh Fruit Association.
Available online at http://www.ChileanFruitOnline.com, the brochure is chock-full of health information, nutrition tips, and fun facts about the Little Blue Dynamos(sm)*, along with easy recipes featuring fresh, ripe blueberries and other Chilean fruits.
“We developed the brochure as a fun, easy-to-use way to communicate the benefits of fresh blueberries from Chile,” said Tom Tjerandsen, North American Managing Director of the Chilean Fresh Fruit Association. “Blueberries are some of the healthiest, tastiest and most versatile fruits available, and this brochure packs a lot of useful information about them into a simple package – not unlike the way blueberries pack a powerful nutritional punch inside their own little blue package.”
Considered by many leading nutrition experts as a “superfood,” blueberries are shown to improve brain function, prevent Alzheimer’s and dementia (according to independent university studies), and lower the risk of heart disease and cancer, among other benefits. Consumers are encouraged to learn more by visiting the website now.
In addition to the Little Blue Dynamos(sm) brochure, dozens of winter-spring recipes and videos are available on the website, from breakfast offerings to luscious deserts and everything in between. Award-winning wine country chef Lisa Hemenway leads the step-by-step video demonstrations for Fresh Fruit Pizza, Blueberry Bread Pudding with Lemon Custard Sauce and more. Lisa has been delighting Sonoma County diners with her gourmet flair for almost 30 years and regularly incorporates fresh blueberries into her restaurant offerings. Since summer-fresh blueberries are available now in grocery stores everywhere, these fresh new recipes and brochure are great resources for creative ways to incorporate fruit nutrition into winter diets.
U.S. and Canadian consumers can also take comfort in knowing that their fruit comes from a reliable source. Chile is a leader in state-of-the-art production techniques that protect the environment, maximize fruit quality, and meet or exceed all official U.S. standards for food safety. Chile is currently the second largest producer of cultivated blueberries worldwide and also the leading grower in the Southern Hemisphere, where the fruit is available during the winter season, when it is not being harvested in the Northern Hemisphere.
