|Abstract:||Inadequate nutrient intake and reduced absorption of micro- and macronutrients among the aging population may result in reduced weight and immunity, as well as increased oxidative stress, associated with increased risk of chronic disease. Aronia melanocarpa (chokeberries) are an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals, and contain higher levels of antioxidants (procyanidins, anthocyanins and phenolics) than most other blackberries. A wide-range of health benefits have been proposed, which need to be confirmed by further research. Aronia offers good potential for innovative developments of functional foods and ingredients. This project aims to develop a natural vitamin- and mineral-enriched drink based on Aronia melanocarpa as an alternative to “vitamin-supplements”, which are too frequently taken among elderly.|
