Black Currant Overview

Black Currant Black currant (Ribes nigrum) is a shrub native to Europe and parts of Asia. It produces small, edible berries known for their sweet-tart flavor and deep purple color. They are often used in a variety of culinary applications and are a popular flavoring agent. Black currants are a good source of vitamin C, dietary fiber, and several other nutrients. They are also believed to have various health benefits, including boosting the immune system, improving cardiovascular health, and reducing inflammation. In addition to the whole fruit, black currant seeds are often utilized for dietary supplements and are sometimes marketed as 'black currant seed oil', which contain a high amount of GLA (Gamma-linolenic acid), an omega-6 fatty acid.
