What is Black Currant?

Blackcurrant is the fruit berries that grows on the woody shrub of the same name. It belongs to Grossulariaceae family and is native to temperate parts of central and northern Europe and northern Asia. Blackcurrant is a good source of a number of nutrients like vitamins,minerals, antioxidants, flavonoids, Omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fibers etc. and presence of these compounds make them very beneficial for our health.

Black Currant History

The blackcurrant is native to northern Europe and Asia. It was cultivated in Russia by the 11th century when it was present in monastery gardens and also grown in towns and settlements. Cultivation in Europe is thought to have started around the last decades of the 17th century.

During World War II, most fruits rich in vitamin C, such as oranges, became difficult to obtain in the United Kingdom. Since blackcurrant berries are a rich source of the vitamin and blackcurrant plants are suitable for growing in the UK climate, the British Government encouraged their cultivation and soon the yield of the nation's crop increased significantly. From 1942 onwards, blackcurrant syrup was distributed free of charge to children under the age of two, and this may have given rise to the lasting popularity of blackcurrant as a flavouring in Britain. In Britain the commercial crop is completely mechanised and about 1,400 hectares of the fruit are grown, mostly under contract to the juicing industry. As of 2017, major cultivation efforts to improve fruit characteristics occurred in Scotland, New Zealand, and Poland.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF BLACKCURRANT POWDER

  • Insomnia reliever

Blackcurrant has the ability to improve the quality of sleep and providing  relief from Insomnia. If you face difficulty in sleeping, then it would be a good idea to include blackcurrant powder in your diet. The Magnesium present in blackcurrant plays an important role in improving the quality, duration and calmness of sleep. It regulates metabolism, provides relief from sleep disorders and minimizes the occurrence of Insomnia.

  • Memory sharpener

Blackcurrant is good not only for our general health but also for our brain health. Taking blackcurrant powder on a regular ( but moderate) basis sharpens our memory and also boosts the oxygen supply to our brain. This benefit of blackcurrant is mainly due to the presence of iron and antioxidants in them.

Iron boosts the supply of oxygen to each and every nerve cell of our brain, and thus helps it to function properly. While on the other hand, antioxidants present in blackcurrant fights with the free radicals of our body stabilizes them and thus prevents them from causing oxidative damage to our brain ( and the body) cells. By protecting our brain from the oxidative damage, blackcurrant also minimizes the risk of various neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s etc.

  • Boost Energy Production

 Taking  blackcurrant powder on a regular basis is also beneficial for the production of energy in our body. This benefit of blackcurrant is mainly due to the presence of vital nutrient manganese in it. Manganese can assist some enzymes responsible for the production of energy in our body. In addition to this, manganese also plays an important role in strengthening the antioxidants defense in our body.

  • Preventing hair loss

From preventing hair loss to maintaining healthy hair, black currants are useful in anything and everything. They comprise Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid that prevents frequent hair fall and promotes hair growth. Besides averting hair loss, black currants help you battle several other health issues. These include dryness of scalp, hair splitting and excessive hair breakage.

  • Strengthens Our Bones

Blackcurrant is a good source of calcium, magnesium, copper etc. and presence of these vital nutrients plays an important role in making our bones stronger. Regular consumption of blackcurrant not only improves the strength of our bones but also reduces the risk of Osteoporosis ( a condition in which our bones get extremely weak and fragile, and are at a higher risk of fracture).

  • Keeps Our Cardiovascular System Healthy

Black currants are rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, which are also excellent for promoting your cardiac health. These essential fatty acids are capable of lowering the level of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or ‘bad cholesterol’ and boost the amount of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or ‘good cholesterol’ in your bloodstream simultaneously. As a result, no cholesterol is deposited within your arteries and the blood pressure levels remain under control. Also, it saves you from a number of fatal cardiovascular diseases like stroke, heart block, heart attack etc.

WHAT DOES BLACKCURRANT TASTE LIKE?

 A sweet earthy taste unlike other berries. Fresh gooseberry and passion-fruit flavour-aromas and hints of raspberry, combined with the floral aromatic notes of carnations and roses. 

HOW TO TAKE BLACKCURRANT POWDER?

Probably the best way to enjoy the taste of blackcurrant powder is to mix with smoothies, especially with apple or mango

Black Currant powder can be added to many baked goods (muffins for example), juices, jams and much more. Add blackcurrantpowder to soda water (club soda).Soda water brings out the flavours of blackcurrants better than plain water. The high acidity means that even though blackcurrant provides fruit sugars for energy it always has a refreshing mouth feel.

Store in a cool dry place for up to 24 months. It is ok to refrigerate. Country of origin: China.

SIDE EFFECTS

Although uncommon, blackcurrant may cause an allergic reaction in some people, especially in those who have a sensitivity to salicylate, a compound that occurs naturally in some plants. 

Additionally, black currant may slow blood clotting. If you have a bleeding disorder or are taking a medication for blood clotting, such as Warfarin, you should consult with your doctor before taking black currant. You should also not take black currant prior to surgery as it may increase bleeding risk.
