Wild organic Blueberries (Bilberries) - antioxidants and pleasure combined

Update from July 1st, 2022: As an alternative to the wild blueberries from Bosnia (sold out; new batch had an infestation and the whole pallet had to be returned), we can now offer 125g bags and 250g bags originating in Ukraine (Lviv region in western Ukraine). This is the 2021 harvest, i.e. before the war. As an addition we also have the blueberry powder originating in Bosnia.

There is something magical about wild blueberries, these dark purple, almost black mini berries with a fascinating taste that grow almost unnoticed on dainty bushes in the mountain forests! And they are packed full of healthy nutrients like no other fruit - a real super fruit! And the childhood memories - hours of wandering through light coniferous forests across the blueberry bushes and eagerly collecting the little jewels.

These delicious and nutritious dried wild blueberries make a great snack. They have a wide range of important nutrients and are particularly rich in vitamins C, E and B6 as well as iron, fiber and other vital substances such as resveratrol, zeaxanthin, lutein, anthocyanins and other polyphenolic compounds. Because they contain such a high amount of phenols, especially gallic acid, blueberries are known as "nerve protectants". According to researchers from Iran, this means that they can literally protect our brain from degeneration, neurotoxicity and oxidative stress.

What is special about a fruit is its high iron content, which raises energy levels through the production of oxygen-rich blood cells throughout the body. In addition, dried wild blueberries contain a very high antioxidant capacity of around 50,000 µmol TE / 100g (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity).

Blueberry extract skin care products are becoming increasingly popular around the world. The wide range of vitamins and minerals have been reported to help restore hormonal balance, which counteracts acne. This makes blueberries an excellent home remedy for acne. Blueberries also contain resveratrol, a natural sunscreen that can tan your skin.

Wild blueberries vs cultivated blueberries

They look almost the same. Both are blue, round and taste great. But what are the differences between these two berries?

Blueberry has become a universal name for blue-colored berries of the Vaccinium genus, but it is good to know the difference between cultivated blueberries (often called American blueberries) and wild blueberries (European blueberries).

While cultivated blueberries are grown in various locations around the world, wild blueberries grow on small shrubs mainly in the northern parts of the northern hemisphere.

Wild blueberries compared to cultivated blueberries have a higher vitamin content and a much higher content of anthocyanins.

The anthocyanins in the wild bilberry are visible to the eye as blue and red pigments in the pulp, which is juicy and bluish-purple. The cultivated blueberry, on the other hand, has an almost transparent white and somewhat floury pulp.

The wild blueberry has been used since the 16th century, both the dried berries and the leaves. Modern interest stems in part from the use of the fruit by British pilots during World War II when pilots noticed that their night vision was better during bombing after eating blueberry jam.

Why we love wild blueberries

Most of the dried wild blueberries on the market have added sugar and preservatives. We prefer our 100% pure and raw food quality, with their wonderful natural taste. Our wild blueberries have a dark purple, almost black color, which indicates the quality and purity of the product. In addition, nowadays almost only garden blueberries (American blueberries) are available from cultivation, which are simply not as good and significantly less rich in vital substances than wild blueberries.

Wild blueberries from SamaraNatura and Pearls of Samarkand

Our wild blueberries are dark purple and quite dry and crispy, with a sweet and sour taste, fruity and very aromatic. They are 100% natural, carefully processed and dried and without preservatives, colorings, sweeteners or other unnatural additives.

Different sizes and origins

Organic wild-collected blueberries are very hard to come by. The bags originating from Bosnia are sold out and unfortunately the new batch had to be returned completely due to an infestation. We hope to be able to offer the new harvest in autumn 2022. In the meantime we were able to buy a small stock from Ukraine. These wild blueberries come from the Lemberg/Lviv region in western Ukraine, near the Polish border. This is the 2021 harvest, i.e. before the war.

Usage of Wild Blueberries

Thanks to their intense, typical blueberry taste, they are perfect as an addition to muesli, smoothies and dessert topping. For smoothie recipe, we recommend you soak the wild blueberries the night before, so they plump up and are easier to blend up with your other smoothie ingredients. They also fit well into yogurt (also vegan coconut yogurt) and honey. A real treat!
