Profile: The palm tree Euterpe oleracea produces long-hanging bunches of berries and is native to Central and South America. Acai berries have a long history of use in South America, particularly Brazil, where they are prized for their health benefits. Our acai powder is made from freeze-dried berries, preserving its wide spectrum of health benefits. Acai berry powder can be used to make smoothies, add to dishes, and be tinctured.
The acai palm tree (pronounced a-sigh-e) and its berries are native to Central and South America. The palm tree is a narrow, 25-meter-tall palm tree with ribbon-like leaves and groupings of branches. The berries are hung in huge bunches from the branches. Each tree produces roughly 20 kg of fruit per year, making it one of Brazil's most important crops. It was originally used to create wine and was renowned as an energy meal. Because the berries will perish within 24 hours of being picked, they must be made into juice, wine, or freeze dried and ground into a powder as soon as possible. Mountain Rose Herbs offers a brand of freeze-dried acai.
Acai berries are marketed as a "superfood," with supporters saying that they can aid with arthritis, weight reduction, high cholesterol, erectile dysfunction, skin appearance, detoxification, and overall wellness.
