Aronia Description

Aronia is a deciduous shrub in the Rosaceae family native to wet woods and swamps in eastern North America. Aronia is cultivated as an ornamental plant and food. The fruit can be eaten raw or made into wine, jam, syrup, juice, tea, salad, beer, and ice cream.

Aronia berries are rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and some other important polyphenols, which have the effect of fighting cancer cells. This wild berry generally grows on the edge of swamps in eastern North America.

Aronia Economic Value

Aronias are tolerant to drought, pests, pollution and disease. Aronias are dried in Poland and mixed with herbal teas, black currants, and are often used as a flavoring or coloring agent in beverages or yogurt. Aronia ripe berry juice is astringent, slightly sweet (moderate sugar content), slightly acidic (low pH). The berries have a unique flavor and can be used as an addition to baked bread in addition to being a juice. In the United States and Canada, aronia berries are used in juice products, mainly marketed for their antioxidant properties.

Aronia has also attracted scientific interest because its deep purple, almost black pigmentation comes from its dense polyphenol content, especially anthocyanins. The total polyphenol content is 1752 mg per 100 g of fresh fruit, the anthocyanin content is 1480 mg per 100 g, and the proanthocyanidin concentration is 664 mg per 100 g. These values are by far the highest measured values for all plants (including vegetables and fruits). Wild cherry berries also contain minerals and vitamins that are beneficial to human body, namely: vitamin B6, B12, E, C, folic acid, quinic acid, polyphenolic acid, tannin, catechin, quercetin, rutin, hesperidin, resveratrol, etc.
