Acai is a fruit which comes from a type of palm tree that mainly grows in the Brazilian Amazon Basin. The small, dark-red or black berry is a traditionally important part of the diet for the local natives. In the last few years, Acai has achieved worldwide fame as a ‘Super-fruit’. And rightly so, since the Acai fruit contains a unique array of vitamins, minerals, unsaturated fatty acids, fibres, and above all, an abundance of natural anti-oxidants.
These substances have cell protective properties and are of vital importance in the strengthening of the immune system as well as slowing down the aging process. They have the ability to bind free-radicals within the body and to render them inactive. Thus, Acai powder provides energy, particularly in times of stress or physical exertion as well as playing a role in preventing disease.
Our Acai extract is carefully processed and made from the best hand-picked berries. About 20 kg of Acai berries are used to get 1 kg of high grade Acai powder extract. We support small family enterprises, whom, with more than 15 years experience in harvesting and processing Acai, have a vital role in protecting their environment.
