Have you ever tasted black currant? Amazing tart and sour deliciousness! 👌 Nothing can compare to it. When I moved from Russia in early 90s I was deeply disappointed to find that it was the"forbidden fruit" in the United States. But not anymore! 😊👍 Blackcurrants were outlawed for almost 100 years due to the belief that they were spreading a fungus that killed white pine trees. It's still not easy to find, but we're lucky to have some local farmers who care to grow this super berry for us to enjoy.
The amazing benefits of black currant are: a HIGH concentration of vitamin C, iron, copper, calcium, phosphorus, manganese, magnesium, potassium, anthocyanin, spolyphenolic substances, antioxidants, and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). #antiinflammatory #immunebooster #FoodIsMedicine #eatforhealth
