Studies show that blackberries have one of the highest antioxidant contents per serving, allowing them to fight off aging cells and cancer cells. Due to blackberry’s high content of Anthocyanin, age-related diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia; as well as cancers affecting the GI tract like colon cancer can be prevented due to the health benefits presented by blackberries.
Blackberries are handpicked then sorted and packed by hand right in the field. Harvesting blackberries is a new passion of ours.
When selecting blackberries look for:
- Blackberries stored in a refrigerated display case within the produce department
- A very dark plum color (red or purple berries are not ripe yet)
- Clean berries in a dry container
- Free of shrivel, dents, and leakage
Store your blackberries in the fridge to keep them fresher longer but wait until they are at room temperature before you eat. This will enhance the blackberries natural flavors.
