Freeze Dried Açaí Powder
Freeze Dried Açaí Powder
The Anti-Oxidant Warrior Fruit
The Açaí berry is harvested right from the banks of the Amazon River and has been a staple food for the natives of this area for thousands of years. Up until the 1990’s it was unheard of outside of Brazil due to its unstable nature. When picked from the Açaí Palm the berry must be consumed within 24 hours or it starts to loose its nutritional content. Nowadays, the berry is snap frozen and/or put through the powdering process upon harvest and this is how we bring it straight to your door, nutrient rich and tasty as ever.
The Açaí berry is a close relative of the cranberry and blueberry; the point of difference is that the Açaí berry is considered one of the highest sources of antioxidants on the planet. The Açaí berry is also high in Oleic Acid (omega-9), which makes up 60% of the fat content found in the berry. The berries are extremely rich in flavonoids and anthocyanin; these have been shown to improve blood circulation throughout the body.
There are two specific species of the Açaí berry and both can be used for the freeze-dried product. Our Freeze Dried Açaí Powder is made from the Euterpe Precatoria species, which more abundantly in the Western Amazon region. This species is known to have a higher anti-oxidant density and low fat content, the uniqueness of this species of Açaí berry means it is an extremely stable. Our Freeze Dried Açaí Powder doesn’t go through any acidification, pasteurisation or snap freezing before they go through the drying process, therefore there is nothing to take from the original nutrient packed berry.
