A Video Comparison:

Fresh versus Dried Blueberries

If you eat fruit – and blueberries, in particular – for nutrient value, you may find this very short New York Times video of interest. It compares fresh to dried blueberries and presents these facts:

  • A serving of dried blueberries is ¼ cup while a serving of fresh is one cup.
  • They both have the same antioxidant value.
  • They both provide the same amount of fiber.
  • A serving of dried blueberries has 150 calories while a serving of fresh has 80.
  • A serving of dried blueberries has 27 grams of sugar while a serving of fresh has 13.
  • A serving of dried blueberries provides no vitamin C while a serving of fresh provides 24% your daily requirement.
