Doesn’t it seem that just about all of the many successful Greek “No Fat” Yogurts are including blueberries.  Last month I even received a call from a manufacturer in Greece looking for blueberries.  





Blueberry in health beverages is a huge deal in the Orient. Here is an example  of blueberry sold in pharmacies and health food venues.  


2013 – A year of blueberry health!  USHBC unveils a new online blueberry health  research library!

At my first blueberry meeting, a visionary grower, the late Oscar Ostring of British Columbia, Canada stood up and predicted that someday consumers would buy blueberries as a health tablet! Although not in pill form.   Each day, new research documents the many health virtues of blueberries.  First it was blueberries and eyesight, next was antioxidants and anti-aging.   Now — exciting things are on the horizon.  Oscar was right.

Check out the USHBC health Research library online. (screenshot above)  Thanks to a joint funded project of the US Highbush Blueberry Council (USHBC) and the Wild Blueberry Association of North America (WBANA), we now offer up-to-date research abstracts on subjects related to blueberries.  Dr. Ronald Prior PhD, a prominent researcher scans  related literature, categorizes and identifies  important  information.  USHBC uploads abstracts and is developing a searchable online database. (coming soon!)

 Keep an eye on the section titled: Metabolic Syndrome for information on new USHBC research in this exciting and important area of health research.
