Aronia Berries - A Superfood

Aronia-berries

The Aronia fruit also known as chokeberries is a fruit filled with phyto-nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants. Because of its exceptionally nutritional value these small wild berries recently captured the attention of many nutritionists, food scientists and fitness trainers.

Botanically, they belong to the family called "Rosaceae", and their scientific name is Aronia melanocarpa. The plant grows up to 2 meters and and it looks like a big bush. The fruit comes in groups of 10-25 berries. It is high in iodine, and as a result very often used as a natural supplement to treat iodine deficiency. Being full of antioxidants, it has also been used as a cleansing tool for the digestive system.

Aronia originated on the eastern part of North America's forests and wetland areas, and its first consumers were Russian astronauts in 1959 as a part of their very strict diet.

Depending on the type of aronia the fruits can be small or big, red, black or purple. The black Aronia has a very strong and bitter taste, unlike the red which is quite sweeter.

The aronia fruit can be used as:

  • fresh fruit - a real vitamin bomb
  • dried fruit - with muesli and yogurt
  • aronia juice - 100% natural and healthy
  • aronia marmalade
