What’s a portion of blueberries on cereal (Discroll Blueberries)

A serving amount (how many grams) & how many calories. I’ve tried googling but no luck.

Or anyone know how many calories in 25g of Discroll blueberries

    Google Driscoll's blueberries nutrition facts; bring a you to driscoll's website where 1 cup (148g) is their recommended serving for 84 calories. 25g should be 14 calories.

    Thank you I’ll use 25g for 14 calories on my breakfast.

    Yes true, but was just curious on an average portion on cereal & the calorie content in that portion.
    But 25g looks like a fair enough amount to me, so I’ll go with that.

    I don't think there is an average. Also the USDA nutrition database will be your friend.

    I generally have somewhere between 3 and 4 oz (say, 85 to 115 g), unless I'm having other types of fruit on the cereal as well (e.g., bananas and blueberries, or strawberries and blueberries) -- then I'll have more like 40 or 50 g of blueberries. 25 g seems like "why bother." Also, fresh blueberries only keep so long.

    According NHS in the U.K., "An adult portion of fruit or vegetables is 80g." In the U.S. a serving of fruit is vaguely defined as one medium apple, banana, orange, or pear, or a 1/2 cup of "chopped" fruit, which I think is what applies to berries, since they're so much smaller than apples or bananas. A half cup of blueberries is 74 g, for 42 kcal.


    Finally, Driscoll is just a packager. Blueberries are blueberries. The database entry you want is "Blueberries - Raw." (100 g have 57 kcal, and 25 g have 14 kcal).

    I love blueberries, but oddly enough, they are one of the things that I prefer frozen. To me, they seem to have more blueberry flavor. It doesn’t make sense, I know.

    Thats too easy to understand for some people. Just like the whole CICO concept.
    But I partly blame the food manufacturers for that. Case in point cereal. They give you nutrition label and say "portion" instead of 100g = Xcalories.

    Yes, and their volume "portions" vary - I've seen 1/3, 1/2, 2/3 C, etc.
