Blueberries are sweet, nutritious and madly popular. Often labeled a “superfood,” they are low in calories and amazingly good for you. They are so yummy and convenient that many people consider them to be their much-loved fruit.
There are the two most common types of blueberry:

2nd us the Lowbush blueberries are often referred to as “wild” blueberries. They are typically smaller and richer in some antioxidants.
Blueberries are among the most nutrient solid berries. A 1 cup serving (148 grams) of blueberries contains (1):
Fiber: 4 grams.
Vitamin C: 24% of the RDA.

Then it holds small amounts of various other nutrients.
They are also about 85% water, and an entire cup contains only 84 calories, with 15 grams of carbohydrates.
Calorie for calorie, this makes them an outstanding source of quite a lot of important nutrients.
Antioxidants are essential and blueberries are believed to contain the utmost antioxidant volume of all generally consumed fruits and vegetables.
