ARONIA BERRY – ARONIA MELANOCARPA
The Aronia berry is an indigenous North American berry that was traditionally found in the Eastern USA and Canada. The “Aronia Berry,” commonly called “chokeberry,” is a nutritionally dense whole food; it is a rich source of antioxidants.
Aronia berries have higher antioxidant levels than other berries. Not only are they low in sugar, but they also contain beneficial nutrients, such as quercetin, quinic, minerals, and vitamins.
