Nowadays, by increasing food diversity, we refer to increasing both, the amount and range, of foods rich in micronutrients consumption. In practice, this requires the implementation of programs that improve the availability, and access to different types of foods that are rich in micronutrients in adequate quantities. Increasing the diversity of the diet, is the preferred way to improve the nutrition of a population, because it has the potential to improve the intake of many nutrients, not just micronutrients. Ongoing research suggests that foods rich in micro and macronutrients also provide a number of antioxidants and probiotics that are important for protection against metabolic diseases and for improving the immune system. The purpose of this paper is to review the research carried out so far in the direction of the gooseberries exploiting and to identify possible directions of study in order to develop innovative products by exploiting the potential of these fruits. The factors responsible for preserving the bioactive properties of these fruits in the finished product will also be investigated. The information provided is of great interest for future directions in exploiting the bioactive potential of goosberries, as the food industry is constantly evolving, leading to a desire to improve or bring innovation to this sector.
