Organic Acai Powder 50g
Acai berries are one of the richest natural sources of antioxidants. Add to yoghurt, smoothies & drinks or muesli.
Açai (Euterpe oleracea) is the secret weapon of many famous athletes who love the Low G.I./high nutrient concentration combo – no surfer from Brazil to Burleigh can start their day without!
This royal purple jewel with the mild, faintly cocoa-berry taste has been snap frozen at harvest site and milled at low temperature into a powder for your convenience. Açai is absolutely loaded with nutrition: 19 Amino Acids, Vitamins A, B1, B2, C, E, and P (bioflavonoids), minerals like potassium, iron, phosphorous, and calcium, fibre content of 30%, trace elements, Omegas 6 and 9, and unusually for a fruit, protein!
Some common questions…
1. What is the purpose of the oxygen absorbing sachet?
To ensure maximum freshness and nutrient preservation upon first opening – discard.
2. Why a lightproof bag ?
The Açai berry is extremely sensitive to light and air and product quality is easily degraded causing undesirable changes in taste, odour and colour unless packed into lightproof and vapourproof bags (preventing oxidation) with free-radical sucking oxy-absorbers to ensure maximum nutrient preservation and freshness to you on opening.
Storage Tips: Keep cool and out of direct sunlight, or even better in the fridge to ensure the health promoting properties are not lost
