Blueberries are still a superfood, even after baking

Blueberries are one of the 'superfoods'-but their health-giving qualities change when you bake them in a pie or eat them in a muffin

Blueberries are one of the 'superfoods'-but their health-giving qualities change when you bake them in a pie or eat them in a muffin.
The berries are rich in health-giving polyphenols, and the best way to eat them is when they are fresh and raw, as nature intended. But some don't like the taste, and so cook them, put them in the juicer or eat them in a muffin.
But what happens to the level of polyphenols when you do? Juicing or canning the berries reduce their polyphenol levels by 20 per cent, but only around 10 per cent is lost when you bake them or eat them in a muffin. Researchers aren't sure why, but they think the yeast acts as a stabilizing agent that protects the polyphenols.
