Dried Aronia seeds


Dried aronia seeds are 100% natural ingredients, without any additives or preservatives. The seeds are obtained from dried aronia pomace, which is also a raw material for aronia fibre powder production. The seeds undergo a thorough cleaning process and an additional high temperature drying process. No chemical processing  is involved and the product is clean label.

Dried aronia seeds (Aronia melanocarpa) – also known as dried chokeberry seeds – are perfect as natural ingredients that improve texture and increase fruit identity in the final product. You can easily add the dried seeds at any stage of your manufacturing process. Dried aronia seeds are microbiologically stable, thanks to which we can offer a 2-years shelf life.

Aronia fruit is considered to be the healthiest fruit in the world, offering more health benefits than any other superfood. Chokeberry fruits are a source of antioxidants and nutrition, offering dietary fibre as well as vitamins and minerals. The fruit is known around the world as the king of berries. It contains around 2-3% of anthocyanins per 100g and an ORAC of 65.000-120.000 umol TE / 100g.  The health properties of aronia fruit were promoted by Polish scientist prof. Iwona Wawer from the Medical University of Warsaw (Poland) in her research work entitled “Health benefits of Aronia berries“. Poland is the biggest producer of aronia in the world. Polish exports account for 90% of all global chokeberry sales.

Nutritional value of aronia seeds:

Aronia seeds contain a small amount of healthy fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. These fats are important for various bodily functions, such as supporting heart health and promoting brain function. Aronia seed oil contains about 80% of all the essential unsaturated fatty acids. Aronia seeds provide a moderate amount of protein, which is essential for the growth, repair, and maintenance of tissues in the body. The seeds contain more than 35% of dietary fiber. Fiber is crucial for promoting healthy digestion, maintaining bowel regularity, and supporting overall gut health. Moreover aronia seeds are known to be rich in antioxidants, particularly anthocyanins.
