Description

Organic Aronia Berries are also known as Chokeberries.

These are a popular new addition to the health food market and if you haven’t tried them, they are a great addition to your store cupboard.  Organic aronia berries have a higher antioxidant status than almost any other berry, their tart dryness makes them a great low sugar choice for trail mix.

The tartness of these organic aronia berries is due to their high vitamin C content.  Vitamin C is an antioxidant which is essential for normal function of the immune system and skin health.  This tartness is also a reason for the name chokeberry, as the sweet and sour taste can give your taste buds a shock.  If you like sour sweets then you will love these tasty berries.  We like to combine them with other sweeter berries, such as organic mulberries, for a real taste sensation.

Whether you call them Aronia or Chokeberries, they are exactly the same thing and originated in North America.  These nutrient rich berries are also grown easily throughout Europe and are similar to bilberries.
