It may be small, but the mighty blackcurrant is bursting with more health promoting antioxidants than most other fruit and vegetables, including blueberries! Blackcurrants don't just taste delicious, eating them can help protect your body against a myriad of ills including cardiovascular disease and ageing.

Blackcurrants are full of health promoting antioxidants. It's these special antioxidants, called anthocyanins, which give blackcurrants their distinctive dark colour. The darker the blackcurrant, the more anthocyanins it contains and the better it is for you.

Blackcurrants are also especially rich in vitamin C, containing more than three times as much as an orange! They can even help prevent joint inflammation, eye strain and urinary infections.

Other than being juiced and used in jellies, syrups, and cordials, blackcurrants are used in cooking because their astringent nature brings out flavor in many sauces, meat dishes and desserts.
