Acai Powder

Ingredient: freeze dried acai berry juice powder. Acai - pronounced ah-sigh-ee. Also known as Acai Palm or Amazon Acai.

Acai berries are highly perishable and need to be processed within 24 hours after harvest. Most commonly they are turned into juice or wine or freeze dried and then powdered. 

Certified Organic

Usage: Use this tart grainy powder in smoothies and juice blends, and to amplify flavor and nutrition in your homemade granolas, frozen desserts and chocolate. YUM!

Common use: a staple in the diet of indiginous tribes of the Amazon rainforest for centuries, acai berries are a relatively new "superfood" on the American market and scientific research is still evolving and should soon reveal further data. So far, acai berries have been found to be naturally low in sugar, very high in antioxidant anthocyanins and polyphynols (responsible for dark purple color) as well as vitamin E and iron. People have used acai to promote weight loss and as a detoxification aid and tests have shown its ability to support healthy and normal cellular tissue growth and thereby combating premature aging and improving general health.

The flavor is described as a mixture of sun-ripe blackberries, red wine, and chocolate - easily blended into smoothies, bars, or dessert recipes, boosting nutrition and adding a deep purple color.

Maca Powder

Botanical name: Lepidium meyenii

Ingredient: maca root powder - also known as Peruvian Ginseng

Raw Maca is not heated above 100F/40C, preserving all enzymes and nutrients at peak levels. Raw Maca does cause slight gas or indigestion in about 5% of people. If you have a sensitive stomach or any other digestive concerns we recommend using Gelatinized Maca instead.

Country of Origin: Peru

A root vegetable belonging to the radish family, Maca has been cultivated by the native people of Peru for over 2000 years. It thrives in the harsh conditions at elevations between 10,000 and 15,000 and is grown by feet by subsistence farmers using traditional farming practices and providing them with a sustainable source of income in a region where little else grows.

Common use:  Maca has been a staple crop for the people of the high Andes for centuries where it was consumed cooked as a root vegetable or made into flour to produce bread and baked goods. Its flavor has been described asslightly sweet, “malted”, or like toasted oats. These days, Maca powder is mostly enjoyed in smoothies, energy bars, puddings, raw sweets, juices, etc.

Maca’s benefits have been long valued and have recently been popularized as a supplement and food ingredient as it is rich in lipids, protein, and a variety of sterols as well as vitamins B, C, and provides plenty of iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium and iodine. Maca is considered an adaptogen or stress-adaptor, helping the body adapt to environmental factors and avoid damage from these factors. It is believed to promote sexual health for both men and women by balancing hormones and increasing fertility. Similar to the Incan warriors that reportedly consumed Maca to fuel their legendary strength for battle, athletes today take maca to enhance endurance and stamina and boost energy to achieve peak perfrmance

 

Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place. Refrigeration not required.
