Do raisins satisfy the requirement for a “blue” fruit or vegetable? Do they contain the “blue” phytonutrients that we are supposed to eat?

Raisins are classified as a “blue/purple” fruit, and as such they do contain some of the phytonutrients that tend to be found in blue/purple fruits and vegetables, specifically some of the flavonoids.  There is not a specific ‘requirement’ for blue/purple fruits and vegetables; the suggestion to include different colors each day is to encourage consumption of a wide variety of different fruits and vegetables.
