Exporting Blackberries

Blackberries Nutrition Concerns?

Developing Alzheimer’s disease (AD) or some other form of dementia is a very real concern for older adults. The potential loss of dignity, identity, and independence is a frightening thought.

There is good news on the nutrition front, however. Berries may provide protection against Alzheimer’s as well as age-related memory loss and other types of cognitive decline.


  • They contain high amounts of antioxidants that protect cells from damage.
  • Blackberries also change the way that neurons in the brain communicate, and this may prevent inflammation in the brain that can damage neurons.
  • Components in blackberries also improve cognition and motor control.

Keep fresh by storing in plastic container in refrigerated until ready to use. (Note: our vented containers are the best way to store berries as they allow just the right amount of airflow to not dehydrate and keep the berries undisturbed until use.)

Remove any damaged or overly soft berries. It is best to wash berries just before use by rinsing gently under running water and either allow to air dry or use a paper towel to remove excess water.
