It looks like an oversized bilberry. In the media it is often referred to as the "fashion berry". The aronia plant is on the rise - and everything that can be made of it. Why is aronia a good choice?
The berry contains vitamins A, B2, K and C and has a high proportion of flavonoids. These are so-called secondary plant substances that have an antioxidant effect. This means that they protect the cells of our body from harmful free radicals that are produced in the body, for example by cigarette smoke. These substances also make the plant insensitive to UV light and pests. In Russia and Poland the benefits of aronia have long been appreciated. There it is even recognized as a medicinal plant.
