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!
