The antioxidant value of Wild Blueberries, Raw described in ORAC units is: 9,621 μ mol TE/100g.

The above value represents Vaccinium spp. (NDB No. 97085), which is the species recognized by the USDA as wild blueberries. When it comes to wild blueberries vs. regular, the difference in antioxidant content is profound, as the wild variety has an ORAC score which is nearly twice that of regular blueberries. Although it is hard to find fresh wild berries for sale at grocery stores, they often sell the frozen versions which are just as healthy - and sometimes healthy - since more of the antioxidants are preserved in them.
