Wonderful and powerful acai berry + recipes

Acai is a nutrient-rich dark purple berry that grows in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest. It is considered one of the most powerful and nutritious superfoods on the planet and has been used for centuries for its amazing health properties.

ACAI’S TASTE

The taste of raw acai berry is slightly bitter. Like a rich dark chocolate with cherry or wine, but without sourness and sweetness. Acai also tastes very similar to chokeberry. However, due to its concentration, freeze-dried Acai powder has a rather sweet taste.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Because the equatorial tropics are one of the most intense ultraviolet zones on our planet, the acai berry produces a large amount of antioxidants to protect itself from the sun. Acai has about 6 times more antioxidants than blueberries and 18 times more than grapes.

These small berries are rich in fiber, iron, vitamins A, B1, B2 and B3, essential fatty acids (Omega-3, Omega-6), as well as Omega-9. Acai is low in sugar and low in glycemic levels. It supports brain function, boosts energy, immunity and supports the cardiovascular system. Acai is also called beauty berry and weight loss berry.
