Product description

Blackcurrant is a berry of translucent pulp with red or green tones and bittersweet taste that belongs to the botanical family of Grossulariaceae. It is native to temperate parts of central and northern Europe and northern Asia, where it prefers damp fertile soils.

This powerhouse plant has been called “the forbidden fruit” in the United States. They help spread a fungus that infects white pine trees. For this reason, blackcurrants have been removed from many areas and Americans have missed out on these nutritious berries.

The fruit is extremely rich in vitamin C and polyphenols, such as the proanthocyanidins (tannins known for their beneficial effects).

Nexira gently process this super berry to preserve its nutritional profile.
