Black currants have a very long history of use given their impressive list of nutritional and phytonutrient contents, including a particular class of flavonoids called anthocyanins. These nutrient-packed fruits are greatly valued for their health-promoting benefits for the brain, digestive system, lungs, and eyes. Various studies and reviews point to anthocyanins' antioxidant benefits, especially for our blood vessels and eyes. The dark purple pigment of this berry reflects one of the highest percentages of anthocyanins in any fruit, particularly one called cyanidin-3-glucoside or C3G. C3G is one of the most predominant anthocyanins found in nature. It's also one of the most bioactive nutrients in its class and one of the most clinically researched.
Our certified organic black currants are grown in northern Europe, an ideal environment for growing the most nutritious and anthocyanin-rich berries in the world. Our black currant cultivar has been specially developed for its rich nutritional value. Our currants are harvested in January when they are assessed to have their highest levels of anthocyanins. They are then processed using exclusive low temperature technology and SuperPure extraction methods to obtain maximum recovery of the beneficial anythocyanin phytonutrients.
