GRAS for Black Currant Extract
A black currant extract has attained GRAS status.
Cyvex Nutrition’s Euro Black Currant extract has attained self-affirmed GRAS status and can be safely used in a wide range of functional foods and beverages. Black currant is a small, dark-purple—almost black—berry that is an excellent source of minerals, vitamins and phytochemicals. Black currants are a more concentrated source of antioxidants, especially anthocyanins, than are blackberries and blueberries. Cyvex’s Euro Black Currant extract is standardized to 25% anthocyanins, making it one of the most potent berry extracts available on the market.—Cyvex Nutrition
