Organic or tested for pesticide residue blueberries: What does it mean for you?

Maybe you have had the pleasure of picking your own blueberries in the countryside under the hot July sun. If so, you surely remember those little wild berries that explode with flavour when you bite into them! And you probably snuck the juiciest ones into your mouth instead of putting them in the basket. Did you know that, just like the blueberries you picked, Nature’s Touch offers organic or tested for pesticide residue blueberries? You can enjoy them all year long!

Many people simply don’t know the difference between the terms “organic” and “tested for pesticide residue”. There are differences and we can help you understand them… find out more below!

Organic blueberries: Healthy and good for the environment!

Organic blueberries are grown following a process that goes far beyond simply managing the use of pesticides! Organic farming utilizes techniques that limit its impact on the environment and on the biodiversity of the production site, including soil management, crop rotation, and others. Organic farming means a commitment to values, the environment and nature! As a result, organic blueberries, whether they are fresh or frozen, maintain the nutrients and health benefits that nature intended for them! Furthermore, our frozen organic blueberries are bursting with flavour!

You can find them in our various formats of Organic wild blueberries

Tested for Pesticide Residue Blueberries: A guarantee of quality!

At Nature’s Touch, these wild blueberries are grown using conventional farming methods, but our team takes extra steps to test the berries for pesticide residues on two separate occasions: once at the farm, immediately prior to shipping, and again at our facilities before packing.

Our precision equipment allows us to detect residues from more than 260 of the most commonly known pesticides because our ultimate goal is to limit your exposure to pesticide residues when enjoying our frozen wild blueberries. Finally, if you are still wondering about the difference between the two, remember that, although our tested for pesticide residue wild blueberries cost slightly less than organic blueberries, both are equally good in terms of taste and for your health! At Nature’s Touch, we offer you both so that you can have the pleasure of choosing whichever you prefer!
