FEATURED PRODUCTS: Aronia Berry Juice Concentrate

Aronia berry, also known as the choke berry or the Black Chokeberry (Aronia melancarpa, is a close cousin of the blueberry. Aronia berry is known for its high content of powerful antioxidants, which have been reported to be higher than blueberries, cranberries and pomegranates. Although native to the Americas, it is far more popular in Eastern Europe where its juice has been known to help people with heart conditions.

The aronia berry has high levels of proanthocyanins and quinic acid (ten times more than cranberries). Quinic acid prevents urinary infection.

Some nutritional benefits are:

  • Polyphenols
  • Anthocyanins
  • Quinic Acid
  • Vitamins (C, E, B)
  • Minerals
  • Flavonols

The Aronia is indigenous to North America, and is also cultivated in Europe, where Poland is a large supplier.
