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 fiber as well as vitamins and minerals. The fruit is known around the world as a king of berries. It contains around 2-3% of anthocyanins per 100g and ORAC 65.000-120.000 umol TE / 100g. Health properties of aronia fruit were presented by Polish scientist prof.
