Tahvonen, Raija (2010) Northern berries are superfruits - how to increase consumption and appreciation? Paper at: Plant breeding and management for human nutrition - How we can produce more healthful crops and food products? NJF seminar 419, Forssa, Finland, 10-11 June 2010.

Health effects of Northern berries have been studied intensively already for years.
Different berries show different health effects. Beneficial effects have been found in
weight management, glucose metabolism, liver and eye health, immune function,
oxidative metabolism (cancer prevention) and lipid metabolism. However, results of
different studies are unanimous due to differences in test materials (whole berries /
different berry fractions) and methods (in vitro studies, cell studies, animal studies,
clinical studies). Especially human studies are still rare.
