Acai Berry Powder - 100% pure, raw and organic
Acai is a small purple rainforest berry, regarded widely as one of the Earth´s most nutritious foods. It contains abundant antioxidants, healthy omega fats, amino acids and dietary fibre.
It also has a rich cocoa and fruity taste. Acai boosts energy and strengthens the immune system, which is why it has recently become a dietary sensation among world-class athletes.
Adding Acai Berry Powder to your food or smoothie is rather like eating the fabled Mediterranean diet, in easily-managed form.
The fruit of the Acai palm, or Euterpe oleracea, is a small purple berry. Originally a wild tree, it is produced by local farmers in the Brazilian Amazon region. Acai has been for centuries one of the staples of the local diet, and has only recently been introduced to an export market.
Acai has a significant nutritional profile, providing calcium, iron, protein and dietary fibre. It is also a potent source of antioxidants. In fact, Acai has an amazing ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) score of 50,000 units per 100 grammes. To put this into perspective, red grapes score just 740 on the ORAC scale.

Acai´s high fat content means that it tends to go off much quicker than most fruit, typically within 24 hours. As soon as it is picked it is rushed to processing plants.
There are several ways to process Acai flesh, but by far the best is freeze-drying. This involves rapidly freezing berry pulp then warming and depressurising it to vaporise the frozen water content.
The result is a powdered product that contains as much as possible of the fresh fruits nutrition, in a light and portable form that is perfect for global export.
