What does Aronia Berry Juice Taste
Aronia berry juice is one of the darkest,
most astringent liquids that grows in nature. The juice of
smashed black chokeberries itself (chokeberries is the common
American name for all berries in the Aronia family) is so
completely packed with dark-purple anthocyanin that it's most
prevelant usage here has for a long time been in inks and
That darkness of course translates to
extremely powerful antioxidants. Only recently has aronia berry
juice from black chokeberries been hailed as a “superfruit,”
despite the native Americans using them as the center of

How Can I Make Aronia Berry Juice?
(That tastes good enough to drink.)
If you have access to black aronia berries
and some apple juice, you're in luck. The best way to juice
aronia is with a simple garlic press, such as you'd find at any
cookwear store, and even in your local wal-mart.
Once you've squeezed a fair amount of
Aronia, simply mix it 1 to 1 with apple juice, which will
sweeten the aronia enough to make it enjoyable.
Is aronia berry juice from red chokeberries
good for me?

is far lower than aronia melanocarpa.
Where can I buy some aronia berry
Here in the United States, we have not found
any juice products in our local stores, even the health-food
stores, based on aronia melanocarpa yet. They have pills and
powders, just no aronia yet, which I would surmise is over
However there are already Aronia berry juice
products that are mixed in with other beneficial fruits, sold
via direct marketing companies. (MLMs)
For instance, Mona Vie, the #1 selling Acai
berry blend in the world has some aronia melanocarpa in it.
However, there is a juice blend mostly made of aronia;
Orenda Oki juice.
