EDEN Wild Blueberries – Pocket Snacks are low bush, small, wild blueberries from fields called ‘barrens’ in northern Québec that have been organically managed since 1996. The large area was once forested, but a few years after logging it filled with wild lowbush blueberries.
The blueberries are picked in August, washed, sorted, and quick frozen. When ready for drying they are thawed and infused with organic EDEN apple juice concentrate to just the right sweetness or ‘Brix’. The infused blueberries are rinsed, low heat air-dried, and lightly misted with organic sunflower oil to prevent clumping. Four pounds of fresh blueberries make one pound of dried.
The wild blueberry is native to northeastern North America growing from Minnesota to Maine and as far north as the Arctic. The wild blueberry is a small, dwarf plant reaching only 1 to 2 feet in height. The cultivated blueberry is much taller with a much wider growing range. Cultivated blueberries are maintained much like an olive grove or an orchard. Wild blueberry plants are not planted. They develop from native existing stands, and are simply managed. Although both types of blueberries contain healthful antioxidants, it is the wild, lowbush blueberry that was recently rated #1 in antioxidant activity by the USDA.
