WHAT IS AÇAI?
A fruit, belonging to the palm trees of the rainforests of South America with a dark purple skin and yellow flesh surrounding a large seed. Because they contain pits like apricots and olives, they're technically not a berry, but rather a drupe.
For over 20 years, açai has been consumed by the masses as a sweetened product. But for centuries açai has been enjoyed by the native people of the Amazon Rainforest as a savoury staple, accompanied by beans, farofa, fish and rice.
A potent, earthy medicine. Connecting heart with mind. That fuels and fills you. Satisfies. Makes you feel alive.
WHY IS AÇAI A SUPERFOOD?
* Omega fats - omegas 3, 6 & 9
* Potent polyphenols - the antioxidants known for protecting the body's tissues against oxidative stress and aids stem cell regeneration. Açai is one of the highest scoring foods on the antioxidant measure, the ORAC scale.
* Zero natural sugar - pure açai is on the earthier side and tastes similar to dark chocolate.
* High in dietary fibre (200g = 25% of the daily recommended intake).
