May be hard to pronounce, but is probably the purest, most nutritious botanical on the planet.
We think Mother Nature’s finest gift comes in a purple-shaped package, full of antioxidants, healthy omegas and vital nutrition. At its simplest, Açaí is a palm fruit that grows on the banks of the Amazon, the most bio-diverse ecosystem on the planet. But to indigenous tribes, it’s said the seed of the Açaí fruit birthed the Amazon.
Harvesting Açaí is an age-old tradition in the north of Brazil. Locals have sustainably done it the same way for centuries. So that’s how we do it too. If it ain’t broke…
Your food should be more than just filling, it should have a purpose. Açaí has been part of the indigenous Brazilian diet for centuries because it’s versatile and powerful. This little berry is one of the only fruits on the planet to be naturally sugar free, packed with antioxidants, and full of healthy omegas – giving it a one of a kind mouth feel that’s rich, refreshing, and totally unique.
The benefits of Açaí are all found in the pulp-which is naturally packed with antioxidants, polyphenols and flavonoids (like those in red wine). Unlike any other fruit, the real magic of Açaí is that it has a perfect combination of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, giving it a creamy mouth feel and loads of trace minerals and essential nutrients.
Açaí is a superfood that’s great on its own but tastes amazing with others. Think of it like exotic berry meets a hint of cacao plus supercharged whole food nutrition. With healthy omegas and antioxidants, you can blend it really thick for an authentic açaí bowl or add more liquid for a smoothie straight from the Amazon.
