COLOUR UP YOUR DIET WITH ANTHOCYANINS
Anthocyanins (pronounced anth-o-sy-an-ins) are naturally-occurring pigments responsible for the bright colours in fruits and especially berries. As protective compounds, their role is to shield plants from everything that the natural environment throws at them.
These ‘colour warriors’ are stimulated by extremes of temperature, altitude and ultraviolet sunlight. The deeper and darker the colour, the higher the concentrations of anthocyanins.
New Zealand’s intense sunlight and long summer days, combined with cold winters and pristine environment, provide unique growing conditions for blackcurrants. The result? A berry fruit packed with anthocyanins and 1.5 times more than its European counterparts.
BLOCKBUSTER BERRIES, THANKS TO NATURE
The clue is in the name – ‘black-currant’ – which takes high rank in the berry spectrum because of its superior anthocyanin levels compared to other berry fruits. This is especially true with New Zealand-grown blackcurrants.
Blackcurrants are special for more than this reason alone, containing very specific combinations and concentrations of anthocyanins, making them unique to any other berry.
A SUPERIOR SOURCE OF ANTHOCYANINS
CurraNZ New Zealand-grown blackcurrants are world-beaters for their anthocyanin concentrations when compared to other high-ranking fruits and berries.
CRAFTED BY THE FORCES OF NATURE IN NEW ZEALAND
New Zealand is known for its purity and abundance of natural resources. Our blackcurrants are grown in the Canterbury Plains of the South Island, nestled at the foot of the famous Southern Alps.
Plants generate anthocyanins when the ‘going gets tough’. This region’s cold winters, long, hot summers and strong ultraviolet sunlight create the perfect seasonal incubator for blackcurrants. This is why New Zealand varieties possess many times more of these phenolic compounds compared to non-New Zealand cultivars.
ANTHOCYANINS AND THEIR RISE TO PROMINENCE IN RESEARCH
Interest in anthocyanins has increased dramatically in the last decade, with over 11,000 published papers now featuring in the scientific literature.
At Health Currancy, our research contribution, focusing on the CurraNZ™ anthocyanin extract, has been at the forefront of making key scientific advances in the understanding of blackcurrants for health and fitness consumers.
