Zante currant is a superfood which is produced only in Greece and especially at Peloponnese (or Peloponnesus). This kind of raisin is a result of naturally dried grapes from the Vitis vinifera variety.

Zante currants are one of the most nutritious dried fruits in the world. Black raisins are cholesterol-free, low in sodium and totally fat-free. Furthermore, they provide many necessary vitamins and minerals, including iron, potassium, calcium and certain B vitamins. This superfood is a good source of fiber and rich in antioxidants. Another impressive advantage of raisins’ consumption, despite the fact that it is a very sweet product, is that it seems to have positive effect on people who suffer by type B diabetes.

Corinthian raisins can be consumed plain. However, they can be added in rice, pastries and in cooked meat. You can begin your day by adding a handful of raisins in yogurt to create a breakfast with high nutritional value.
