About Vostizza Currant is a natural product made by sun drying the grapes of the Greek vine variety under the scientific name Vitis Vinifera L. Currant is cultivated in Greece and particularly on the coasts of North and West Peloponnesus as well as the Ionian islands where the soil and climatic conditions thanks to the sea breeze and the sunshine are ideal for the production of a natural product of sublime quality. Due to its excellent properties, currant has been part of the daily diet since the ancient years. Today, it is consumed as a snack or it is used as an ingredient in cooking, bakery, cake making etc preserving all its nutritious properties. While raisins and sultanas are sweet and grow on vines, true black and red currants are quite tart and grow on bushes. The name currant on its own just refers to the fresh currant fruit. So what exactly are the sweet, dried fruits labeled Zante currants? These are not actually proper currants! They come from very small grapes (about one-fourth the size of standard grapes), and that´s where some confusion may arise. The world-renowned Currants under the name "VOSTIZZA" is considered the Currant of the highest quality and its distinctive feature is the excellent aroma and the unique taste. "VOSTIZZA" is exclusively cultivated on the semi-mountainous and mountainous area of Aeghialeia. http://www.thekitchn.com/http://www.thekitchn.com http://www.pesunion.gr Storage: dry and cool ( below +18°C ) 100 g of product contains on average: Energy value 1381 kJ/ 326 kcal Fats 0,4 g of which saturated fatty acids 0,1 g Carbohydrates 75 g of which sugars 75 g Proteins 2 g Salt 0 g
