The Health Benefits of Chokeberries

Posted by Superberries Team on 12/1/2023 to About the Aroniaberry

Health Benefits of ChokeberriesThe Aronia berry (also known as a chokeberry) has proven to be one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants. In simple terms, antioxidants are a chemical compound or substance such as Vitamin E and C, found in foods, which are thought to protect the body’s cells from the damaging effects of oxidation. Chokeberries have higher antioxidant levels than other fruits and berries. Not only are they low in sugar, they also contain beneficial nutrients, such as quercetin, quinic, minerals, and vitamins. They also contain powerful nutritional compounds like anthocyanins, polyphenols, and flavonoids deliver health and wellness benefits to your eyes, joints, cardiovascular, and other body systems. 

History of the Aronia Berry

Posted by Superberries Team on 10/9/2023 to About the Aroniaberry
The Power of NatureWe love exploring the history of the Aronia berry. The berry was originally used for a number of purposes by the Native American cultures in North America. The leaves and twigs of the Aronia Berry bush were a staple used for medicinal teas and herbal remedies to treat everything from colic to fever. The juice of the berries was used as dyes, war paint, and for treating cuts and abrasions. During the long winter months, dried berries were used to boost nutrition and health among the Native American tribes. Aronia Berries were also used to cure and tenderize various meats. The cured, tenderized meats were called pemmican (dried meats) and were used for food during the harsh winter months when game was scarce.

It’s been an interesting project and the knowledge I’ve gained regarding the various berries is quite enlightening to a “foodie” such as myself.  In the course of this research I was asked how well the Aronia Berry stacked up against the cranberry. While cranberries are high in natural antioxidants and provide nutritional value to any diet, the Aronia Berry still manages to top the cranberry in nearly every category.
