Currants pack more nutrition than their small size might indicate. When grapes are dehydrated to produce currant, the nutrients become more concentrated, making a handful of currants a snack rich in B vitamins, iron and potassium. Besides nutrients, currants are also a good source of carbohydrates for energy.The 34 grams of carbohydrates in one small box of currants include 26 grams of sugar for rapid energy. If you use sports chews or other sports products to add carbohydrates and improve performance while you exercise or participate in endurance sports, you can get the same benefit from eating currants, according to a review in the Journal of Food Science in 2013. You’ll also get 1.6 grams of fiber, which is 4 percent of men’s and 6 percent of women’s daily intake from just one small box of currants. About half of the total is soluble fiber that helps lower cholesterol and balance blood sugar.
