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.

In Deutschland und bei unseren europäischen Nachbarländern heimisch

Johannisbeeren schätzen das gemäßigte Klima in unseren Nachbarländern und hierzulande. Kein Wunder, dass in Europa über 95 % des weltweiten Johannisbeeren-Ertrages geerntet wird. Dabei zählen Polen, Ungarn und Litauen zu den größten Anbaugebieten, aus denen wir auch unsere Beeren beziehen.

Reif geerntet

In den Sommermonaten ist Erntesaison für die Johannisbeeren angesagt. Dabei sind die schwarzen Früchte meist etwas später reif als ihre roten Verwandten und erreichen den optimalen Reifegrad erst im August. Je länger die Johannisbeeren am Strauch hängen, desto süßer schmecken sie.

Schonende Gefriertrocknung

Erst in die Schockfrostung, dann in die Vakuumkammer: Klingt zwar nicht nach schonender Trocknung, ist es aber. Bei der Gefriertrocknung bleiben beinahe alle Nährstoffe der Johannisbeeren erhalten. Und die Früchte selbst werden unfassbar crunchy und noch geschmacksintensiver. Wenn das mal keine Win-Win Situation ist!

Questions about questions Freeze-dried black currant

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.
