- getting your fill of anthocyanin-rich food may help boost your overall health by offering up an array of nutrients
- ORAC is a method of measuring a food’s ability to help destroy free radicals before they cause damage to the body
- these free radical scavengers are referred to as antioxidants
- The anthocyanins in bilberry may also strengthen the walls of blood vessels (it can help treat varicose veins and haemorrhoids), reduce inflammation and stabilise tissues containing collagen, such as cartilage, tendons and ligaments.
Vitamins and trace elements per 100g
Vitamin K1 < 16µg
Vitamin E < 9.1mg
Anthocyanin pigments are responsible for the red, purple, and blue colours of many fruits and vegetables
- it’s yet to be proven whether taking high concentrations of anthocyanins in supplement form can help treat or prevent any specific health condition.
Our dried bilberries offer a high content of these anthocyanins (650 ± 100 mg to be precise).
the antioxidant values of foods are expressed in ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) units,µmol TE/100g, a unit of measurement for antioxidants developed by the National Institute on Aging in the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
- the higher the score, the better that food can destroy free radicals which may help to slow the ageing process and prevent diseases including cancer.
27100 ± 4000 µmol TE/100g.
compared to the cultivated blueberry, bilberry’s ORAC value is over double.
