NZ Blackcurrant Trivia: Tiny but Mighty

Let’s drink to a well winter!

Did you know…

  • Blackcurrants are packed with a range of healthy compounds, including massive doses of the antioxidant, vitamin C.
  • Blackcurrants have around four times more vitamin C than oranges and 16 times more than blueberries.
  • When consumed as part of a healthy diet, vitamin C contributes to the normal immune system function, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, cell protection from free radical damage and normal psychological function.
  • Your body can’t produce and poorly stores vitamin C, so you need to take it in regularly.
  • Unsweetened Blackcurrant juice contains 100% New Zealand bred and grown Blackadder blackcurrants, making waves in scientific research for its antioxidant qualities.
  • There are more than 1200 squeezed Blackadder blackcurrants in every bottle of Barker’s Unsweetened Blackadder Blackcurrant juice!

“I am so glad that I discovered this 99% pure squeezed Blackadder Blackcurrant juice now and I will make it my daily treat! In my morning fruit salad with yoghurt and as a drink. I always loved your traditional blackcurrant juice and with enough water it always was a nice drink…however, with pure squeezed Blackadder Blackcurrant you give me, as the consumer, the choice if, which or how much sweetener I need for the different usages it has. That is absolute fantastic and unique. Thank you so much!!!” – Hubertus
