Did you know that in some cultures, this fruit’s name has its origins in the Bible? In German-speaking countries, the currant is called Johannisbeere. The name is said to be linked to St. John, since the fruits are usually ripe around 24th June, the Feast of St. John the Baptist.
Many peoples consider the currant to be a symbol of long life and robust health. In early times, it was observed that currants helped to relieve skin complaints, due to the gamma-linoleic acid contained in their seeds. Currants are reputed to calm the nerves, improve the mood and concentration, stimulate the metabolism and strengthen the immune system. The berries contain vitamin C, fibre, potassium, iron, the colouring anthocyanin, and have a very high antioxidant capacity of 7957 µmol TE (ORAC value).
The body’s defence mechanisms are strengthened by foods rich in antioxidants, and this helps to neutralise excessive production of free radicals. The recommended ORAC daily requirement is between 5000 and 7000 .
