What are blackcurrants?

The blackcurrant is a type of berry that comes from the blackcurrant bush/plant. The plant is usually found in temperate climates, and the berries are usually ripe in July or August. The Blackcurrant is small and round, with a deep purple colour.

The blackcurrant plant

The plant that produces large, dark berries is also a good source of pollen and nectar for bees. And prefer cool, moist conditions to be grown.

Black currants are usually propagated by cuttings or parts of the rootstock.

Plants can also be started from seed, but take longer to bear fruit. Berries are usually harvested in late summer or early autumn.

Origin of the black currant (ribes nigrum)

The blackcurrant is a berry native to Europe and Asia. The exact origin of the berry is unknown, but they have been cultivated in these regions for centuries.

Blackcurrants were first brought to North America in the early 1800s, and they quickly became popular among farmers and gardeners.

The blackcurrant also occurs wild in wet, nutrient-rich soil in deciduous forests.

Today, the berry is grown in many parts of the world, and is appreciated for its tart flavour and high vitamin C content. Blackcurrants can be eaten fresh, but they are also often used to make jam, jelly and syrup.

In recent years, berries have also become popular ingredients in health supplements and cosmetics.

Why are blackcurrants healthy?

Blackcurrant powder is made from the dried berries of the blackcurrant bush. These blackcurrants are a rich source of vitamins (particularly Vitamin C), minerals and antioxidants. Blackcurrants are also a good source of fibre.

Nutritional values of blackcurrants

The term superfood certainly comes in handy with freeze-dried blackcurrant powder. This is because blackcurrants are a powerhouse in terms of vitamins to minerals and antioxidants. Just 100 grams of blackcurrants contains:

Vitamin C - 177 mg per 100 grams, 218% of daily allowance

Vitamin C is an important nutrient. It is a powerful antioxidant. Blackcurrant contains almost up to four times more vitamin C than oranges!

Vitamin A - 0.12 mg per 100 grams, 13.33% of the daily allowance

Vitamin A is an essential vitamin for the human body. However, the body produces nothing of vitamin A itself, making blackcurrant an ideal option to increase your vitamin A intake.

Potassium - 322 mg per 100 grams, 7% of the daily allowance

 Blackcurrants contain a relatively high amount of potassium.

Dietary fibre

Blackcurrants are a good source of dietary fibre.

Besides these nutrients, blackcurrants also contain photochemicals.

So blackcurrants are not only tasty but also good for you! Should you want to read more information about the product. Then there is a specs sheet available for you that is detailed in detail.

What is freeze-drying?

Freeze-drying is a method of food preservation in which food is freeze-dried to extract water from it. Freeze-drying works by freezing the food and then exposing it to a vacuum. The vacuum removes the water from the food, and the freeze-dried food is then ready to eat.
