Aronia melanocarpa fruit juice (AMFJ) is rich in phenolic substances, mainly flavonoids and tannins. The influence of AMFJ (5 and 10 ml kg−1) on the gastrointestinal propulsion of charcoal meal in rats was investigated. AMFJ dose-dependently reduced the rate of intestinal transit and the effect was statistically significant at the dose of 10 ml kg−1. This reduction of the intestinal transit rate might be due to the the presence of flavonoids and tannins in the juice.
