What is Acai?
Acai berries are small, dark purple berries that grows on large palms. The fruit is about 1 inch in circumference and has a similar appearance to a grape or blueberry. The acai palm tree is indigenous to the tropical Amazon regions of South America and was traditionally used by native Brazilians to provide a natural energy boost and vitality and also enhance their diet.
The tree produces bunches of 500-900 fruit berries and is harvested twice a year between July and December.
Acai is considered to be one of the healthiest foods in the world. Our high purity powder comes directly from the whole acai berry which is freeze-dried after being harvested and then carefully milled into fine powder. This process retains the high nutritional value of the fruit and allows for maximum digestion and absorption when consumed.
What does Acai taste like?
It has a berry like taste, with a faint chocolate aroma, and mildly astringent due to its very low sugar content.
What is the texture of Acai Powder? Does it dissolve easily?
Acai Powder can be gritty and partially insoluble. It is normal to have some dark purple sediment at the bottom of an Acai rich smoothie or beverage.
How should I use it?
Our Acai Powder is best used by blending it into smoothies and shakes, using it in baked goods, adding it to food (like cereal, granola, oatmeal, and yogurt), and mixing it into juices, tea, and water! For more acai recipe inspiration, click HERE.
