Acai Berry Powder
Acai berry powder 4:1 from Brazil, rich in antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids. Amazing in smoothies.
Acai berry powder comes from berries of the acai palm tree. These deep purple berries grow on tall palm trees in the tropical Amazon regions of Brazil and Peru where they have a longstanding reputation as an energy and beauty food. Because the berries will start to spoil within 24 hours of being harvested, they must be quickly turned into juice, wine, or freeze dried and turned into a powder. Acai berry powder is shelf stable so it will last for several months.
Acai berry powder is extremely high in antioxidants and anthocyanins, rich in protein fiber, vitamin E and iron. It is naturally low in sugar and its flavor is described as a mixture of red wine and chocolate. The powder has a unique, slightly tart, and tropical taste and can easily add a major antioxidant boost to any diet. It's creaminess lends itself beautifully to puddings, sweet dips, and frozen desserts. A few teaspoons of acai powder can be added to smoothies or juice, mixed into yogurt or oatmeal.
