Let’s turn the tables:

Why are there so few natural blue foods?

  1. Real blue seems to be a very difficult color for living things. As for foods, I don’t know, but even bird feathers and insects appear blue through refraction rather than just pigment. It is a curious situation.

  2. I read a very interesting article about that… and though I don’t know how accurate and scientific it was, it makes a lot of sense… It said that in order for the animals, birds and insects to notice and eat their fruit, plants mostly developped fruit with yellow/orange/red pigmentation because it contrasted with the green leaves. Blue being to close to the green foliage, it just wasn’t as effective… Makes sense to me. I can only guess that we developped a feeling that blue food just isn’t natural over the years, so when we see processed food colored blue, it just looks like something chemical….

    Again, I haven’t made much more research about the subject…

  3. I don’t think that there is any occuring naturally (blueberry are really purple). There certainly no naturally flowers that are blue. I’m sure it has something about how some plants want their fruit eaten and others don’t.
