Acai is a great source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A. Acai is most renowned for being rich in antioxidants and flavonoids including anthocyanins which give the berry its deep purple hue. Antioxidants may help neutralise free radicals, helping to protect the body from oxidative stress.
Ways to enjoy
Acai blends smoothly in acai bowls, smoothies, yoghurt, muesli, juices, or water. Its unique wild berry cacao taste can also be used to create healthier indulgences like raw desserts or ice cream for an antioxidant and immunity boost.
Origins of Acai
Acai berries grow on acai palm trees. Deep purple and grape-like in shape and size, acai thrives in its native Central and South American rainforests, along the flood plains of the Amazon. Used as a staple plant throughout Brazil, acai has been historically used for energy and to treat fever, skin problems and digestive issues.
