Black & Red Currants – A Currant Affair

The black currant has long been popular in Europe, especially as a juice in beverages and desserts. Noted for significant amounts of antioxidant Vitamin C, this berry offers a rich flavor and dark purple color originating from its high content of anthocyanins. With popularity growing in the US market, black currants:
  • Offer over 7x the total polyphenol content and 4x the in vitro antioxidant capacity of red grapes
  • Are extremely high in Vitamin C, with 302% of daily value per 100g
  • Offer many essential vitamins such as Vitamin A, beta-carotene and thiamin
  • Provide good amounts of dietary minerals including copper, calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, potassium and dietary fiber

Red currants are sweet yet tart berries, native to Western Europe and Asia. These round, bright-red berries are commonly used in jams, sauces and various baked goods, or are simply eaten by hand as a snack. Red currants:

  • Provide a very good source of dietary fiber, Vitamin C and Vitamin K
  • Are very low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium
  • Provide good amounts of dietary minerals including manganese and potassium

Both black and red currants are unique ingredients that can add both taste and nutrients to a variety of health and wellness products.
