Purple & Anthocyanins
Blackcurrants are full of health-promoting antioxidants, called anthocyanins, which give blackcurrants their distinctive dark purple colour. The darker the blackcurrant, the more anthocyanins it contains and the better it is for you. British blackcurrants are grown and bred especially for their deep colour, making them extra good for you.

Anthocyanins are a type of antioxidant found in blackcurrants.
Foods that are good sources of these compounds are; dark berry fruits (particularly blackcurrants) and grapes for anthocyanins; apples and onions for flavonols; and green tea for catechins.
