The chokeberry plant (Aronia melanocarpa = black chokeberry) is a small bush of about 1-2 m in height, which thrives very well in our latitudes and is extremely resistant. The berries grow in umbels, similar to the elderberry. Our berries come from Switzerland and are processed in Switzerland.

Difference between Aronia pomace and Aronia extract
There is a significant difference between Aronia berry pomace and Aronia berry extract. Aronia extract is a highly concentrated form of Aronia pomace.
