The Maine Wild Blueberry Company has patented a method of making blueberries more readily available for consumption at home and in restaurants. Blueberry muffins are a favourite snack of many consumers, but the blueberry season makes it difficult to source fresh berries. Frozen and dried blueberries are used in muffins, but both these methods have their disadvantages. In the case of frozen berries, much of the texture is lost through the process of thawing and baking. Dried berries are often chewy.
