Tart cherry juice has been getting a lot of good publicity lately, as a result of recent scientific studies about its antioxidant qualities and potential to speed post exercise muscle recovery. The raised awareness has brought a lot of newcomers into the marketplace. That’s why it’s more important than ever to compare “cherries to cherries” and make an educated purchasing decision. There are some important things to consider when choosing a tart cherry juice.

1. Is it Montmorency? Northport Organic tart cherry juice concentrate is 100% Montmorency cherry juice. Montmorency cherries are the most commonly grown tart cherry in the U.S., and are the variety of tart cherry renowned for their healthful properties and antioxidants, including anthocyanins and naturally occurring melatonin. There are some cheaper, less reputable brands on the market selling cherry juice blends or imported cherry juice of different, unnamed varieties as Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate.

2. Is it Grown in the Usa? Northport Organic tart cherry juice concentrate is grown, processed and packaged in the United States, by real cherry growing families.
