"dried black currants" news and stories
Black Currants, a 'super fruit' rich in anti-oxidants, have been under represented in the US market until just recently. Now sweetened, dried black currants are becoming available in a multitude of ways. Kendall Frozen Fruits has now made them available so that they can be used in a plethora of products like "healthy snacks, trail mixes, cereals, yogurt, muffins, salads, cookies, vinegars and other applications."
The black currant is known for its intense, rich, fruit flavor so well loved in the liqueur cassis and other alcoholic beverages. A while ago I wrote about CurrantC, a delicious black currant juice beverage. I'm so glad we are now going to have other black currant food options available.
Besides anti-oxidants, vitamin C, and Iron; black currents also contain anthocyanin compounds which may help the body fight against diseases like Arthritis, Cancer and Alzheimer's disease. I love it when healthy and tasty are combined in one product.
