Is there Fiber in Blueberries?

YES! Organic Blueberries are a great, nutritious and delicious source of fiber!

Blueberries are a good source of vitamin C and fiber. One cup of conventional blueberries equals one serving and provides 15 percent of the vitamin C and 14 percent of the dietary fiber needed daily. We've measured Sunset Valley Organics Vitamin C, and know you'll get twice the Vitamin C as conventional berries, and we're working out how to measure the fiber in our very uniquely grown, certified organic produce.

Blueberries do not contain any cholesterol or fat and are low in calories. Include blueberries in your diet.
