What Are Anthocyanins

Anthocyanins are a type of antioxidant found in blackcurrants. It's the anthocyanins in blackcurrants which give them their distinctive dark colour. Blackcurrants grown in the British Isles are bred especially for a deeper, purple colour.

Foods that are good sources of these compounds are; dark berry fruits (particularly blackcurrants) and grapes for anthocyanins; apples and onions for flavonols; and green tea for catechins.
