Blueberry Lovers Wanted for Research

University of Maine researchers are seeking 50 volunteers to eat fresh Maine wild blueberries grown under four different types of agricultural practices, including organic.

The taste test takes place 3–5:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 31 in the Consumer Testing Center at 168 Hitchner Hall on the UMaine campus. Volunteers will receive $5 cash for participation in the 30-minute test.

Researchers are seeking volunteers to eat fresh blueberries at least twice a year. Eligible participants must be non-smokers who do not have blueberry allergies, a cold or other health conditions that affect sense of taste.
