Blueberries are one of nature’s superfoods. They are packed with vitamin C and have tons of antioxidants, and there is increasing data that blueberries can help improve (or keep) our memory as we age. A brand-new study also shows that it lowers blood pressure and LDL, the bad cholesterol. Plus, they taste great!
The problem in Beijing used to be availability; you either spent 50RMB on fresh organics flown in from Chile (not exactly carbon-footprint friendly), or about 20RMB on local frozen ones, which never tasted as fresh. Now, I’m happy to report that just in the last couple months I’ve noticed an explosion of locally made organic blueberries — at an astonishing price of only 10-12RMB per small box. I just stocked up on a pile from Walmart at 9.9RMB, and I’ve also seen them in the excellent SanYuanLi market. I think this is a good sign that the slowly maturing organics market in China continues to progress.
