I understand blueberries are not nightshade but they contain solanine? How much do they contain? I let my toddler eat them everyday thinking it is good for her brain development... Is there a way to neutralize the solanine levels in blueberries? Do all blueberries contain solanine? What about wild blueberries?

I seriously doubt that there is enough Solanine in blueberries to hurt a toddler... unless he has a proven sensitivity to solanine.
When I was young, I ate tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers, okra, blueberries, artichokes and other foods laced with solanine... with no problems. However, in my fifties, I suspect my liver did not filter as well and I developed solanine inflammation issues associated with both bone spurs and arthritis.

I can't eat blueberries anymore.  Even the amount found in a muffin can cause my muscles to start constricting painfully, larger amounts cause joint pain.  Apples, artichoke, okra, blueberries and possibly coconut are the non-nightshade foods that cause the same reactions as nightshades.

Does anyone have credible scientific references about how much solanine is in blueberries? 

So far, it is widely rumored and a couple of people have written that they had a bad reaction to blueberries.
So far, no scientific evidence of any solanine being found in Blueberries.
You can email me at dreambody@igc.org - hopeully with a well documented link.
Thanks for your interest.

There is probably no solanine in blueberries. I think the problem is that they use many pesticides during cultivation. Read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blueberry under Pesticides
