What's small, Scottish and packed with more antioxidants than you can shake a stick at?
No, it's not a gag. The answer is aronia berries and they're being hailed as Scotland's new super-berries.
Already causing quite a stir in the US, the berry only has one commercial source in the UK – a farm in Angus. New this month is a range of juices and smoothies full of the berries from Edinburgh juice bar, Juice Almighty.
Berries are an excellent source of antioxidants and proanthocyanidins – thought to be effective in inhibiting the growth of cancer cells – but the good news is that aronia berries contain more of these health-boosting properties than any other fruit. And if that wasn't enough, they also contain vitamins B2, B6, E, C and folic acid. Drink up!
