Blackcurrant is rich in flavor and vitamin C

Blackcurrant (Ribes nigrum) is an aromatic, dark berry known for its intense yet sweet flavor and excellent nutrient content. Blackcurrants contain more vitamin C than oranges and more vitamin E than bilberries. The high vitamin and antioxidant content of blackberries is also the reason why they have been used to boost immunity for centuries. Get to know our blackcurrant products!

Blackcurrant contains plenty of GLA

The berries, seed oil and the leaves of blackcurrant are rich in vitamins C, E and A. Only 50 grams of blackcurrants are enough to fulfill the daily need for vitamin C. The oil of blackcurrant also contains plenty of good fatty acids such as stearidonic acid (SDA) and gamma-Linolenic acid (GLA) important for the wellbeing of the skin. In fact, blackcurrant has been researched as a possible aid for various skin problems, such as atopic skin. Blackcurrant is also a powerful antioxidant.

In addition to the berries, also the leaves, flowers and buds of blackcurrant can be utilized. Try them in seasoning or use them to brew herbal tea, as the Nordic folks have done for centuries.
