Acai berry is the small, purple berry of the Acai palm (Euterpe oleracea), a tree native to the Brazilian Amazon region. Acai berry has become very popular during the last few years, because of its high antioxidant levels. The broad spectrum of nutrition provided by Acai berry includes exceptionally high antioxidant content. Acai berry also includes a good supply of Omega fatty acids in the same ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 9 found in olive oil. Rainforest Foods Acai berry is sourced from one of the world's leading producers (Sambazon). Its founders discovered Acai berry during a Millennium-eve surfing trip, and have since created a FairTrade-accredited supply chain that benefits thousands of local families, as well as protecting the Amazon rainforest through sustainable agriculture. A portion of all its profits is returned to the Amazon to promote education, provide health care and enable rainforest protection. This approach has won it major awards. Originally a wild plant, the Acai palm is now cultivated by farmers in Brazil, where it grows under rainforest conditions. Acai berry is picked by hand from the topmost branches of the tree. Its high fat content means that it can go off rapidly, so it is rushed to a processing plant once picked. Here it is pressed to extract the fruit pulp. There are several ways to process Acai pulp, but the method which best preserves nutrients is freeze-drying - rapidly freezing the pulp then warming and depressurising it to vaporise the frozen water content. This is the processing method our suppliers use. The freeze-dried pulp is milled to powder form and packed for transport. It takes over 20kg of fruit to make 1kg of Rainforest Foods Acai berry powder. Since it began, Rainforest Foods' purpose has been to help people combine good nutrition with modern living. Realising that a return to time-rich living close to the land is just not possible, we have sourced a range of wholefoods whose exceptional nutritional richness can support modern lifestyles rather than forcing them to change. We look all around the world for these foods, and have them processed in a way that keeps as much nutrition as possible while making them convenient for you to use.
