Anoria berries are at the top of the list when it comes to healthy antioxidant levels. They have more antioxidants than any other fruit. Its antioxidant levels are even above the antioxidants of blueberries, higher than pomegranates, higher than blueberries, higher than acai, grapes, elderberries, and other fruits. Black Anoria berries commonly known as black chokeberries are now known for their high levels of antioxidants and amazing health benefits. The following are some examples of recipes that use Anoria berries. Aronia has a higher ORAC value (oxygen radical absorption capacity, a measure of the power of an antioxidant to neutralize free radicals) than any other food.
The berries can be used to make baked goods, jam, syrup, juice, light spreads, and tea. It is used in the production of jellies, sweets, fillings for cakes and cookies, yogurt, sorbet and flavored milk.
It should come as no surprise that opinions differ on what tastes good.
You can easily make your own Aronia juice with a steam juicer. The juice mixes easily with a sweetener like stevia. Berry juice is extremely acidic, so it is best to sweeten the natural juice with stevia. When sweetened, it tastes like a cross between a blueberry and a blackberry.
Aronia juice and apple juice and can be delicious as mixed juice. Equal servings of Aronia and apple juice make a healthy mixed juice. Of course, you can use other juices to mix with the Aronia juice.
