Scandinavian Blueberry Soup

In Scandinavia, blueberry soup is a popular treat that can be served warm as an appetizer or chilled as a dessert. But the benefits of blueberry soup extend far beyond its culinary use. In a laboratory test conducted by USDA researchers, wild blueberries were ranked number one in terms of antioxidant capacity over 40 other tested fruits, berries, and vegetables. The antioxidant activity of wild blueberries was shown to be even stronger than that of cranberries, raspberries, strawberries, plums, or cultivated blueberries.

Catechin-Rich Ice Tea

Catechins found in green tea have been shown to possess strong anti-cancer properties.

Lemon juice, rich in vitamin C, further improves the availability of catechins.
