New Zealand organic blackcurrants are most famous for extremely high levels of Vitamin C, one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants. If part of a healthy, varied diet, Vitamin C can help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, as well as a range other government-recognised health benefits.
Did you know? Blackcurrant bushes grown without pesticides have been shown to contain higher levels of Vitamin C than those treated with common pesticide applications.
Our blackcurrants also contain high levels of fibre, low calories, and of course anthocyanins, the polyphenolic compounds that gives our berries their rich dark purple colour, and which have been of major interest to scientists over previous decades, especially for nutritional applications in sports and brain health and in regulating blood sugar levels.
