We recently went blackberry picking. The blackberries were sometimes as large as my little finger and incredibly sweet. They are great in kefir smoothies. With so many blackberries in my freezer and my curiosity up regarding how they compare to blueberries, I took a look on the internet and found that Blackberries are amazing. I knew that berries were good for health, but I had no idea about the groundbreaking research results for blackberries. I just wanted to add them to my smoothies, but now I am extra thankful.
Oregon is the top producer of commercial blackberries and they have a lot of propaganda around their health benefits. I will list their press release first, as it has some good overview information, followed by research-related articles. Enjoy!
