Everything at a glance Freeze-dried black currant

A berry with many names: cassis, ribes, gooseberry, or simply currant, black currant reminds some of us of our childhood summers, when we would collect handfuls of it from wild plants, gladly filling our mouth with its peculiar sweet and sour taste, and thus fighting the heat. If you miss this feeling of summer and freedom, you are going to love our freeze-dried black currant, which you can now enjoy even when the season is over! Besides, thanks to the freeze-drying process, the taste of our berries is way more concentrated than that of their fresh counterparts – and their texture crunchier!

A vitamin C powerhouse

Black currant is native of central Europe, where it grows very easily, and is packed with vitamins and nutrients. In terms of nutrient density, this tiny berry is in no way inferior to the popular superfoods acai and goji berries: black currant bristles with vitamin C, which, thankfully, does not get lost in the freeze-drying process. Our black ribes is therefore a great and healthy alternative to chips. Snacking has never felt so good!

Versatile in the kitchen

The gentle sourness of currant is what makes it so unmistakably delicious, and it can transform a plain yoghurt bowl into an incredible sensory experience. You can also use black ribes to top up your smoothie or porridge bowl with taste and colour, or to bake fruity muffins and cookies – they can be also a great and unexpected addition to savoury dishes, like a fresh, crunchy couscous salad.

What makes our freeze-dried currant so special

Our black currant is harvested when ripe, which is why its taste is so intense, and then gently freeze-dried, so that almost all its vitamins and nutrients are left intact. We add no sugar nor preservatives to our ribes, as we want to bring to your door the ultimate, unadulterated berry experience. Albeit free from preservatives, these dried black berries do keep for very long; enjoy their summery, biting taste even in the middle of the winter! Last but not least: if you want a double dose of vitamine C, at KoRo you can find red currant as well.

    Why is the price fluctuating?

    Most annual product crops have an impact on the relationship between supply and demand in the market. In the event of a bad harvest, we must also pay a higher price for raw materials. Due to the strong impact of external factors such as wind, weather, climate and natural events on the harvest, we are refusing long-term cross-harvest contracts with our producers.

Currants like the temperate climate of European countries. No wonder then that over 95% of the world's currant yield is harvested here. Poland, Hungary and Lithuania are among the largest growing areas worldwide, and we also get our berries from them.

Currant's quick growth

Currant bushes grow very quickly, shortly after sowing. At the beginning of April, the plants start to cover themselves in green flowers that hang from the branches in clusters.

When fully grown, the shrubs can reach heights of even 1.5 meters. With their thick branches and wild-looking leaves, some shrubs are almost currant trees!

Harvesting

Black currant is harvested in summer, normally around August – a bit later than its red version, which is ready to be harvested already at the end of June. The longer the currants hang on the bush, the sweeter they taste.

After the harvest, black currant is washed, and selected by hand in order to deliver only the best-quality berries directly to your door.

First shock-frozen, then directly to the vacuum room: this might not sound like a gentle process, but freeze-drying is one of the best options to preserve vitamins and nutrients intact. Moreover, as this procedure removes most of the berries' water, it enhances their taste and makes their texture crunchier. A real win-win situation!

After having been freeze-dried, the black berries  are filled into large packs and shipped to our Berlin warehouse, where the fruits wait for you to buy them!

Questions about questions Freeze-dried black currant

FAQ-Bereich durchsuchen:

How should I store the black currant to make it last longer?

Of course you want to know how to take care of your freeze-dried black currant, before buying half a kilo of it! Properly stored - which means well closed, and away from heat and direct light - our black currant keeps for up to one and a half years. You can use our airtight mason jars to store them not only efficiently but also prettily.

What is freeze-drying, and why do you use this process?

The delicate freeze-drying process uses the principle of sublimation to remove water from foods. Our fruits are frozen and successively placed in a vacuum room, where the water, due to the pressure, changes its state from ice directly into steam. Thus, the black currant berries get their crunchy texture, keep their nutrients intact, and have their taste enhanced!

How many calories does black currant have?

100 g of our freeze-dried black currant have about 275 calories and 32 g of carbohydrates. All nutritional values are printed on the packaging.

How many types of currant there are, and how do they differ from one another?

When you think of currant, you probably picture black and red small berries that grow on wild bushes. But there is another, more uncommon type of currant - the white one! This leads to some crossbreeds like the pink and golden-coloured ribes, which are however pretty rare. Independently from their colour, currant types have a very similar, sweet-and-sour taste: red currant is generally slightly sweeter, while white currant can have a delicate wine-y aftertaste.

Perfect for some acidity, freshness and color in the muesli. The dry berries soak up quickly and then taste just as good as fresh. Price performance is good.

Sourer than I thought, but tastier.

Sourer than I thought, but delicious contrast in yogurt with muesli. Not quite as handsome, but do not let that deter you.

Yummy. Pure they are a little too crumbly for me, dry in the mouth. But for example in rye cocoa cookies they give a delicious fresh note.

A touch of summer

This wonderful product is a perfect ingredient for porridges, overnightoats, smoothies or certainly also for baking. The colour that is released is also fantastic, like fresh berries or almost better.

Berry surprise ?

So far, the wild blueberries were my favorite - freeze-dried berries from KoRo, I also could not really imagine how dried currants taste. But these freeze-dried black currants have just absolutely blown me away taste-wise, sweet tart flavor and also nice crunchy, just yum!
