Flash Frozen For Maximum Nutrition
Blackberries are only in season for a short time. The majority of blackberries picked in the U.S. are flash frozen at the peak of ripeness. It’s the reason blackberries make such a great healthy, nutritious addition to your freezer; they’re naturally the perfect combination of sweet and tart, low in calories, and high in fiber. Having berries on hand throughout the year allows you to add a tasty dose of nutrients and antioxidants to your sauces, jams, smoothies, muffins, and more!
Phytochemicals for Your Health
The rich, beautiful color of blackberries comes from anthocyanins, a type of phytochemical. Phytochemicals are non-nutritive substances found in plants that can help prevent chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart disease. Anthocyanins also act as antioxidants and may help protect the brain from oxidative stress and reduce the effects of conditions like dementia. Some studies show ripe blackberries have significantly more beneficial phenolic compounds (like anthocyanins) than under-ripe berries do, which makes frozen blackberries a perpetually great option! They’re picked at peak ripeness so you can enjoy them at their best all year round.
