Why are blueberries so healthy?
Blueberries are particularly tasty and nutritious berries. They are also called blueberries because of their deep blue colour, which they owe to the pigment myrtillin. This neutralises free radicals and prevents cancer and heart disease. Furthermore, eating blueberries is said to have a positive effect on the appearance of the skin.
We wish you lots of fun with the preparation and good appetite for your loved ones!
