Aronia Berry Powder Benefits: Coloring Food and Preventing Chronic Diseases

Monday June 03, 2024

Aronia berry, due to its bitter taste, is commonly called Chokeberry. Black chokeberry is nowadays a widely utilized crop for the production of natural food colorants [1] and due to its usage in processed products [2] and nutraceutical utilization in the form of nutritional supplements [3]. Black chokeberry originates from the eastern parts of North America. The cultivation of this crop for the food industry in Europe started in Russia in the early 1900s in the cold areas of Siberia, and afterwards, the plant was spread all over Russia. In the first half of the 20th century, the Aronia plant was also introduced to other European countries, such as Eastern European states (e.g., Poland with a current area of around 1600 ha and a production of 14,000–15,000 t), Germany, Finland, Sweden, and Norway [4].

How to produce Aronia Berry Powder?

Aronia berries will go through cleaning, pressing, concentrating, heat sterilization, filtration, spray drying, and so on, and then the fruit berry will be converted into Aronia berry powder. Every process needs strict environmental control, including Temperature and microbial conditions.
