Have you ever noticed that blueberries have a silvery look to them before you wash them? That silvery color actually has a name – it’s called the bloom! The bloom is a naturally occurring protective layer that keeps bacteria and insects out, and moisture and freshness in. As they lose freshness, the bloom on the berries will fade away. That’s why it’s important to wash blueberries right before you eat them, not days before to keep them as fresh as possible. Keep your blueberries in the fridge and enjoy within 10 days for the juiciest bites of flavor! #quickbites #blueberries #nutritioneducation
