Aronia (aronia melanocarpa) is a small violet-black berry that is native to North America. Aronia has an extremely bitter flavor due to it's very high concentrations of anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, and other antioxidants. Also known as the chokeberry, it was used for centuries by Native North Americans as a central part of their health and culture. However, as a new population spread across the continent, respect for the aronia berry diminished. As these new people preferred sweeter tasting fruit, aronia was avoided and forgotten. Recently rediscovered by scientists, the aronia berry is now being hailed by health experts and natural foods advocates as the most powerful untapped berry in the booming superfood market.
