Organic aronia juices are made from our organic fruits, cold-pressed, mixed with honey and then pasteurized at a temperature not higher than 60° C, to use them for a longer period but at the same time not to destroy the beneficial components.
In the pasteurization process, the temperature of the product quickly rises and lowers. The process is entirely safe and healthy, like one used in homes to preserve food over winter. However, this process is somewhat different because of the modern technology, in the pasteurization process, vitamins, mineral salts or micronutrient are not lost.
This process is used to kill bacteria and other micro-organism which cause the process of fermentation to take place, while keeping the nutritional value.
