Aronia: The little berry with high health potential
Traditionally used by Native Americans, aronia was identified from 16th century for its potential for immunity. Aronia is easily fitting into the category of superfruits thanks to its composition and high content in antioxidants. This untapped little berry has a strong potential to become the new favorite.
Aronia (Aronia melanocarpa), also known as black chokeberry, contains a high concentration of potent antioxidants, like polyphenols, and particularly anthocyanins. Plants produce them to protect from environmental stress. While only few consumers know aronia, this little berry is emerging as a key component of the better-for-you health trend. Literature has well-documented the antioxidative properties of aronia. This relates specifically to cardiovascular health, metabolic health and immune system support.
Using our strong analytical knowledge and know-how in the field of bioactive ingredients, we offer fully characterized aronia solutions going beyond the healthy image of superfruit. We offer a unique proprietary aronia extract (patent application filed) and an aronia juice powder, both made in Canada and standardized in polyphenols and anthocyanins.
