Scientific Studies: Blackcurrant Anthocyanins and GLA

NZ blackcurrants have received some media coverage in New Zealand over the last few years and in 2004, the berry was at the centre of an international marketing campaign for US audiences. Through print communications inspired by the "color diet concepts" espoused in books such as David Heber's What Color is your Diet? blackcurrants were introduced to potential consumers in America. Pamphlets containing the opening statement: "We all know that good things come out of the blue And now scientists are discovering that excellent things come out of the purple" give some indication of the connection being made with Heber's book.
