New research shows that increased intakes of anthocyanins (the antioxidant pigments from Fruit & veges) may reduce blood vessel hardening and improve overall heart health.

The intakes of anthocyanins associated witht these findings could be incorporated into your daily diet by eating two serves of berries a day or 2 heaped teaspoons of Sujon powder, which is packed with anthocyanins.

The chicken doesn’t look pretty but it goes really tender, maybe something to do with the blackcurrant powder? And tastes YUM.
