Aronia melanocarpa (also known as black chokeberry) has been extensively studied in clinical trials due to its high anthocyanin content. The purple-black color of these chokeberries is also secondary to the presence of anthocyanins.
The dark color of black chokeberries serves several purposes. The dark color attracts birds and other insects. This way, assists the plant in effective pollination. Also, the dark color of this fruit absorbs most of the damaging UV rays and prevents these rays from damaging the core of the fruit. Moreover, this aids the plant in effective photosynthesis as well.
Anaylysis of anthocyanins in chokeberries has shown that Aronia melanocarpa is rich in chemicals like cyanidin-3-galactoside, epicatechin, caffeic acid, quercetin, delphinidin, petunidin, pelargonidin, peonidin, and malvidin. All these except caffeic acid are members of the flavonoid category of antioxidant phenolics.
