Açai: The Jewel of the Amazon
Origin: Pronounced “ah-sah-EE”, açai is a small, dark-violet berry crowned with a white ornamental whorl. Grown in the heart of the Amazon, açai berries have a unique phytonutrient composition of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
Amazonian superfood: Indigenous Brazilians have been eating açai berries for centuries due to their health and wellness benefits.
Sustainable: The berry-filled fronds are harvested, leaving the açai palm tree to grow year after year.
Carefully processed: After harvest, the açai pulp is removed from the seed. The pulp is then flash-pasteurised to help retain the flavour, colour and beneficial nutrients.
