Organic Acai Berry Powder
Beware of cheap alternatives - acai has to be processed immediately, otherwise, it rapidly ferments and spoils.
Our organic acai berries are carefully hand-harvested by farmers in the Brazilian rainforest, and then almost immediately turned into a pulp and freeze-dried to ensure the freshest taste, and to preserve their nutritional value (vitamins A and E, iron, fibre, and essential fatty acids).
The result is a deep purple coloured powder that will give your recipes a beautiful jewel colour, a world apart from the bland brown of inferior acai powder.
In north Brazil, acai berries are eaten daily, not only for dessert but as a main dish. Further south, consuming acai pulp in smoothies and juices, and mixed with other fruits and cereals, is another popular way of soaking up the berries’ goodness.
Loaded with antioxidants, the health benefits of acai have taken the world by storm. So, whether you run an indie juice bar, use the powder for muscle-building smoothies, or you got hooked on acai bowls on your last trip to Bali, you’ll want to load up on the best quality, most nutritious berries you can lay your hands on.
Acai (pronounced a-sigh-ee) is an exceptionally nutritious berry that grows naturally in Brazil and the Amazon region. Our acai berries are harvested in the depths of the Brazilian rainforest using traditional techniques.
Our suppliers work closely with the farmers to ensure good working conditions and fair pay for the farmers at every stage of production.
The explosion of acai on the Western wellness scene has created a booming business for small collectors and local producers. Acai is a non-timber sustainable rainforest product, with tough judge Greenpeace saying, “the rapid regeneration of the [acai] plant make it a far preferable and sustainable alternative to large-scale logging”. Sustainable and healthy, this superfood is aptly named.
