  • History

    Bilberries have long been extolled for their dietary benefits and medicinal properties. The American doctor, Dr Allen, extracted a hypoglycemic agent from bilberry called myrtillin. This led him to name the fruit "plant insulin". Bilberries also contain anthocyanosides, which are known for improving night vision. They are what give blueberries their color.
