In a previous Blog, I profiled one of the global blackcurrant industry’s most respected researchers, Prof Mark Willems, of the University of Chichester in the United Kingdom.

Although most of Prof Willems work has focussed on blackcurrants and exercise physiology his latest published work looks at NZ Blackcurrant powder and support for healthy Blood sugar balance. This research has just been published in Functional Foods in Health and Disease 2017: 7 (7): 483-493.

The research used our Sujon Blackcurrant powder. The paper says that “regular intake of the powder may support healthy blood sugar balance in health individuals and recommends that “future work should examine the effects of regular intake of New Zealand blackcurrant.

In a future column, I’ll explain what conditions cause fruits and vegetables grown in New Zealand (especially blackcurrants grown in the South Canterbury and Motueka Nelson areas) to have a unique polyphenolic profile that may offer a range of significant human health values if included in the diet.

It is important for me to stress the following when I refer to research:

  • Research can be indicative of possible values to humans but most current research requires significant more trials before values are proven.
  • While research is being carried out people should simply enjoy blackcurrants as part of a balanced diet of many foods; especially fruits and vegetables.
  •  Our Sujon Blackcurrant powder is simply whole blackcurrants freeze dried, seeds removed, and then milled to a beautiful richly coloured powder. No additives!
  • No-one should use the above information in any way to treat themselves without discussing first with their medical professional.

Always read the label and use as directed. Supplementary to a balanced diet.

Blackcurrant powder tastes great in a smoothie!

“As a naturopath working in a local health shop for four years, I have been amazed by the genuine positive feedback from this product, it has been incredibly popular and just had such an amazing enthusiasm and gratitude for it by people utilising it.

As a naturopath I have come to believe one of our greatest health foundations is our diet, so I am so supportive of utilising highly bioavailable nutrients through superfoods. Sujon blackcurrant powder has just been an excellent addition to my own diet, and I certainly recommend it. Being so rich in bioavailable vitamin c, bioflavonoids, and having an incredible antioxidant activity, which is so protective and important in this day and age, it is a great superfood supplement, that many are using for different advantages.

From my own personal experience also of using it during pregnancy, for all its optimal health benefits, supporting my energy levels, and notably to help keep iron levels up, (vitamin c greatly helps iron to absorb). I take it as a yummy zesty health shot and love it. I have been really impressed.”
