ARONIA POWDER

100 g / 454 g

Just as high as Luciano Pavarotti could hit the notes in ‘O sole mio’, that describes how the sun is important for a high proportion of antioxidants (anthocyanin, polyphenols) for which aronia is so highly regarded. Croatia is also known for a large number of sunny hours, and a specific micro location in the Slavonia region enables the Bobica PREMIUM aronia berry powder to get the most out of it.

The powder is obtained by grinding the bark and seeds of aronia. It contains a high proportion of antioxidants (anthocyanin, polyphenols) that make aronia so highly prized. Croatia is also known for its many hours of sunshine, and a specific micro location in the Slavonia region allows the aronia berry powder of Bobica PREMIUM to get the most out of this. Mix one to two teaspoons of aronia powder in your favourite muesli, yogurt, breakfast cereals, milk, honey or fruit juice.

ARONIA

Aronia (aronia melanocarpa) came to Europe from the east coast of North America. Initially, it was grown only for aesthetic and decorative purposes. Aronia berries are dark purple in colour, with a sour and lingering taste. The berries ripen in early September and remain on the shrubs until November. The dark green leaves of aronia turn into an astonishing red colour in autumn, creating a beautiful sight. Even more beautiful are its delicate white flowers which become truly magnificent in May, when the aronia shrubs blossom.
Various studies show that aronia is rich in antioxidants that prevent the oxidation of cells by free radicals. In 100 g of aronia, about 1.480 mg of anthocyanins and 1.752 mg of polyphenols were found. Anthocyanin gives that deep purple colour to the berries. Ripened aronia berries contain large amounts of biophenols, tannins, flavonoids and anthocyanins.
According to research on the effects of antioxidants (ORAC), aronia has one of the highest values ever recorded – 16.062 µmol / 100 g. When comparing, the value of other fruits is as follows: blueberries 6.552 µmol; plums 6.259 µmol; figs 3.383 µmol; grapes 1.260 µmol; lemon 1.225 µmol; oranges 984 µmol.
Aronia is called the healthiest plant in the world and is one of the most powerful antioxidants today. Aronia contains over 300 biologically active compounds and is rich in vitamins and minerals.
In addition to the above, aronia has further positive effects, it:

  • is beneficial to the intestinal mucosa;
  • provides better bile and liver function;
  • reduces inflammation;
  • prevents the development of viral and bacterial infections of the urinary tract;
  • regulates pancreatic function and blood sugar levels.
