Health note: Blueberries are a good source of pectin according to Andrew Proctor, food chemist at Ohio State University. He states "Fruits and vegetables have pectin that is shown to be able to lower cholesterol in the blood". About 30 percent of blueberry fiber is pectin. A cup of blueberries contains about 5 grams of fiber.
