Blackcurrants are packed full of nutrients, are known for their high level of vitamin C, are naturally loaded with antioxidants and taste delicious!
We don’t call them a superfood for nothing! We call ViBERi organic blackcurrants a superfood because they contain extremely high levels of Vitamin C, one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants.
