The blackcurrant, Ribes nigrum L., has been valued for centuries as a nutritious food and a wild, edible delicacy.
Good nutrition can benefit your health and lifestyle. The dark, black berries have high levels of anthocyanins, other polyphenolics and vitamin C. Blackcurrants are low in calories and sodium and rich in vitamin A and potassium, with moderate quantities of the B vitamins thiamine and niacin.
Growing scientific evidence shows the special contribution of blackcurrants to maintaining health.
The use of blackcurrant fruit as an herbal medicine emerged in the Middle Ages when it was used extensively in natural health remedies. Today there is a growing body of scientific evidence which shows how blackcurrants can protect against oxidative damage and thus contribute to preventing ageing and disease. Blackcurrant is commonly known as 'Cassis' in France and Japan, and as 'Schwarze Johannisbeeren' in Germany.
