Blackcurrant powder benefits
Arctic Flavors’ blackcurrant powder is an excellent source of antioxidants, natural fibers, and especially vitamins. In fact, compared to other berry powders, it has much higher concentrations of vitamins A and K, as well as one of the highest concentrations of natural fibers as shown in the graphs below.
In addition, blackcurrant powder is a significantly healthier option compared to blackcurrant juice, blackcurrant jam, blackcurrant extracts, and blackcurrant supplements. In contrast to jams, juices, and extracts which are typically loaded with sugar and preservatives, our powder is made of 100% whole berries, and most importantly, there is nothing else added. Our product is 100% natural product and is free of added sugars, preservatives or colorants. What is more, you get to enjoy the naturally delicious taste and beautiful purple color of blackcurrant.
What does freeze-dried powder mean, and why does it make a difference?
The first step of making our freeze-dried blackcurrant powder is to quickly freeze the blackcurrants at a very low temperature, typically below -80C. Following this step, the frozen blackcurrants are dried in a slightly warmed vacuum chamber. During this step, the water evaporates and the blackcurrants are completely dried. Lastly, the freeze-dried blackcurrants are powdered and immediately packaged in a moisture-free and oxygen-proof environment that ensures its freshness.
Because of the freeze-drying method, our blackcurrant powder maintains its exceptional nutritional values, flavor, fragrance, and color for up to two years. It is important, at this point, to highlight that other companies use a different method to make their powders, the so-called heat-drying method. As a result, this method reduces the quality of the powder quite dramatically. Due to the high heat used to remove the water, the nutritional value, color, fragrance, and taste of the berries is significantly lower. In conclusion, freeze-dried powder is always of higher quality than a heat-dried powder.
