The results confirm that blackcurrant is a good source of anthocyanins. However,
remarkable variation in the anthocyanin content between varieties is evident. The
anthocyanin profile is always dominated by four major anthocyanins, yet some
variation appears in their relative proportions. The high anthocyanin content is usually
most desirable in the blackcurrant products and this study shows that the choice of
variety may have a great impact on it.
