Botanical Name: Euterpe Oleracea
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.
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.
