SuperiorNutStore.com Celebrates National Blueberry Month

SuperiorNutStore.com, a leading online retailer for bulk nuts and dried fruits, is celebrating National Blueberry Month with a large selection of dried blueberries and dried fruits, which can offer not only great taste but numerous health benefits. SuperiorNutStore.com is reporting that many people are looking to add more fruit to their diets by adding dried blueberries to many common recipes.

(Cambridge, MA) - For most people, summertime is the perfect time to enjoy fresh produce, especially fresh berries. With an abundance of fresh fruit available at the grocery store as well as at the farmers market, many enjoy treats such as fruit salad or fruit smoothies during the summer months. But when fresh berries get harder to find, most people tend to switch to frozen or dried berries to get the same amount of fruit in their diets.

SuperiorNutStore.com, a leading online retailer for nuts and dried fruit in bulk, is one source for people looking to stock up on dried blueberries. With July being National Blueberry Month, one can expect to see an abundance of fresh and dried blueberries in many favorite recipes. Muffins, trail mixes, sorbet, bars, cookies, cakes, pies, and even just on their own as a snack can be just a few of the ways that this fruit can be enjoyed.  According to the George Mateljan Foundation, in terms of U.S. fruit consumption, blueberries rank only second to strawberries in popularity of berries. Plus, blueberries have been enjoyed in North America for hundreds of years.

Blueberries are incredibly popular not only for their taste, but also for their health benefits as well. Known as a superfood, blueberries contain some of the highest levels of antioxidants found in fruit as well as several other valuable nutrients. Blueberries are rich in fiber, vitamin C, manganese, vitamin E, and are a relatively low-calorie snack. Dried blueberries can deliver many of the same health benefits and have been touted by nutritionists and health experts as a wonderful alternative to candies when one gets a craving for something sweet.

At SuperiorNutStore.com, one can find a variety of dried blueberry options that are easy to integrate in with one's diet. One could toss them it oatmeal, add into granola, mix in with cereal, or just eat on the go like raisins or dried cranberries. The online dried fruit retailer is encouraging those looking to add fruit and antioxidants to their diets to consider dried blueberries as a great source, especially during July's National Blueberry Month.
