PRLog - Aug. 23, 2011 - DRAPER, Utah -- Blueberries owe their nutritional benefits to the high levels of “naturally occurring antioxidant phytonutrients, particularly, flavonoids.”
In a study conducted by the Canned Food Alliance with the Oregon Health Sciences University and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) -- to determine the affect of commercial canning on the “flavonoid content of blueberries compared with fresh blueberries”
"Not only did this study prove that commercial canning does not diminish the levels of any flavonoid measured, it actually increases the abundance of some antioxidants,"

With the USDA, the Oregon Health Sciences University compared flavonoids in fresh, frozen, canned, heated and refrigerated blueberries -- from the same harvested sample to determine the effects of commercial canning on the flavonoid (with antioxidant functions) content of blueberries as compared to fresh blueberries.
"Consumers today are more interested in positive nutrition -- adding, not avoiding, foods that may enhance fitness, boost immunity, slow aging and prevent or slow the chance for chronic disease," said Roberta Duyff, MS, RD, and author of the American Dietetic Association Complete Food and Nutrition Guide. "Research on phytonutrients is the new frontier in nutrition, and is as exciting today as vitamin discoveries were a hundred years ago."
Beginning in 1995, the Canned Food Alliance has conducted research studies to “evaluate the nutritional values of canned foods.” The University of Illinois conducted a study in 1997 that found, that “canned fruits and vegetables provide as much dietary fiber as their cooked fresh and frozen counterparts,”
