What is Aronia?

A berry native to North East America, Aronia has a deep purple pigmentation due to the dense content of polyphenols, i.e. anthocyanins. The pigments are produced in the skin of the berry as a natural defense against intense sunlight, serving antioxidant functions and ensuring regeneration.
Aronia is one of the richest fruits in antioxidants, flavonoids, trace minerals (iron, manganese, phosphorus...), folic acid and beta-carotenoids*, making it antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
Vitamin composition: A, B2, B6, B9, C, E, and the rare Vitamin P.
Also rare is its content in precious fruit sugar Sorbitol.
The Aronia plant is resistant to drought, insects, pollution and disease, therefore needs no pesticides or GMO to thrive.

What’s in the bottles

You will find simple ingredients, surprisingly sweet, with no sugar added. See the page below to learn why our berries are naturally sweeter than expected.

You will also find that the juices contain suspended particles, making them somewhat thick. Scroll further down to find out why our juices are different...

  • Aronade 55: 55% pure Aronia, 45% pure Blackberry.
  • Aronade 66: 66% pure Aronia, 34% pure Raspberry.
  • Aronade 100: 100% pure Aronia juice.
⚠ You may notice a slight evolution of the taste of our blends over the years. It is due to the impact of the varying weather on the fruits, which is more evidence that our juices are not standardized and conserve their intrinsic integrity year after year.
All ingredients are certified organic:
EU Agriculture certificate BG BIO-16

Why it is different

Unique Terroir

The combination of 5.5h of daily sunshine on average and good heat gives superior sweetness and nutritional values to our berries (exclusive study on the right!).

 The berry juice blends are rich in taste.

Proprietary Juice Extraction

We do not use press, we grind the whole berries, then send them to centrifugation for maximum extraction.

Yields more nutrients within the juice.

Blends with gradual concentration

We craft the pure berry juice blends with various levels of Aronia concentration.

You’ll always find a taste you like.

The more sunshine and the warmer the weather gets, the higher the nutritional benefits of Aronia*.

The Founders

Did You Know?

The Aronia berry was used by #potawatami native americans

The Potawatomi’s Natural Medicine

Aronia is native to northeastern regions of the US that stretch as far west as the Great Lakes area and as far south as the northern Appalachian Mountains. The local Potawatomi Indians traditionally used aronia in a tea to cure colds. The berries were also used to make pemmican, a truly nutritious, survival food. It was made from fat, crushed, dried meat and sometimes berries, to combine energy, strength and health benefits. This power food could last for years without refrigeration!

aronia harvester

Our Aronia Harvester

You may wonder why this monster machine is required to pick Aronia off the bushes. The main reason lies in the high yields of the bush which grows 3 to 8 ft (1 to 2.5 meters) in height. One mature Aronia bush can produce about 30 lbs or 13.5 Kg of berries on average. The branches tend to bend down under the berries weight. Therefore a special harvester with wide-open “mouth” is necessary to make sure all berries are grabbed on the bush, from head to toe!

Aronia-Strawberry Juice Blend is Next

Code-named ARONADE 44, our pure organic Aronia-Strawberry juice blend will be coming up next.

The exact proportion, and therefore the name of the bottle, will be known after we test several combination and pick the best tasting one. Please stay tuned by visiting our Facebook page.
