Blackcurrants have been prized for their high nutritional value for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years. These berries can purify blood, reduce the risk of anaemia and combat kidney problems. In addition, blackcurrants naturally offer a great taste experience and are a treat. But what is the real secret weapon of the blackcurrant, and why is freeze-dried blackcurrant powder so useful? We’ll tell you all about it in the post below! Be sure to read on and find out just how powerful blackcurrants really are for your health!
Blackcurrant powder provides a powerful health boost
Blackcurrants are rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Vitamin C is particularly abundant in these berries, which contain up to 4 times more vitamin C than oranges. In terms of antioxidants, blackcurrants also offer effective competition, giving blueberries a run for money. Blackcurrants contain 2 times more antioxidants than blueberries. Among other things, currants are also rich in a rare omega-6 fatty acid called gamma-linoleic acid, or GLA, which is particularly beneficial for the brain and the proper functioning of the immune system.
Among other things, blackcurrants are helpful in case of:
- recovery from infectious diseases;
- in the elimination of toxins from the body;
- cardiac arrhythmia and hypertension;
- in cases of anaemia due to iron deficiency.
In addition, blackcurrants have an overall strengthening effect, stimulating the immune system, enabling it to resist disease-causing agents by preventing infection.
Why prefer freeze-dried blackcurrant powder?
Freeze-dried powder is the perfect way to conveniently add blackcurrants to your daily menu. Because freeze-drying takes place at a very low temperature (below 42 degrees), the powder retains all the benefits and none of the vitamins or minerals are destroyed in the process.
Consuming the powder is easy and convenient
In this way, the vitamin-rich berries are convenient to have on hand all year round, even in winter. As freeze-dried powder is much more concentrated than fresh berries, just a few spoonfuls a day are enough to keep your vitamin stores topped up. The powder packet itself is also very light and does not take up much space, making it easy to store in the kitchen cupboard or to take with you when travelling. As freeze-dried powders have a very long shelf life of up to 25 years, depending on the product, it is also safe to stock up at home without worrying about spoilage.
Low in calories, rich in taste
Freeze-dried blackcurrant powder has both a rich, sweet-sour flavour and a rich colour, while being very low in calories. The freeze-drying process retains the colour, aroma and flavour of the fresh berry, so that the freeze-dried powder delivers an equivalent (if not better) taste experience.
How to use blackcurrant powder?
Blackcurrant powder is perfect for enriching healthy smoothies, muesli, raw fruit bars, energy bars, breakfast porridge, yoghurt, cocktails, chia pudding, raw cakes and much more – just let your imagination fly! In addition to its unrivalled flavour, the rich blackcurrant powder will also add a truly eye-catching colour to your smoothie or dessert, perfect for sprinkling over desserts at a party. The powder is ready to use straight from the pack and requires no preparation. Simply open the packet and use a spoon to add the desired amount of powder to your food or drink. The only important thing to remember is that it is not advisable to heat the powder in order to preserve its nutritional value. For example, if you want to sprinkle the powder on a warm breakfast porridge, simply allow the porridge to cool slightly before adding it.
RECOMMENDATION: Store the berry powder in the original packaging and always make sure that the packaging is closed properly to prevent moisture from entering. Exposure to moisture may cause the powder to change texture and become lumpy.
