Organic Maqui Powder 100g
MAQUI (aristotelia chilensis): Haven’t yet heard of it?? You will – the ‘Patagonian Superfruit’ with a super deep purple colour and mild berry taste is native to Chile and regularly consumed by the Mapuche Indians. Pronounced ‘mah-KEY’, this Maqui is raw, wild-harvested and freeze-dried (not spray-dried) for maximum nutrient preservation.
100% pure- NO fillers. free-running agents or sweeteners such as maltodextrin.
Maqui berry happily grows in over-exploited soils in its native country of Chile, and as such is a great erosion deterrent. The Mapuche Indian tribe located there were the only tribe in North or South America unconquered by European colonisers – they reportedly ate very little solid food, but frequently drank a fermented Maqui beverage which they attributed to their relatively long lives, and superior strength.
With an ORAC antioxidant score that’s 3 times HIGHER than even Acai berry, it has the added punch of antioxidants like anthocyanins (like blueberries), polyphenols, Vitamins A & C, iron, potassium and Omega-6.
Vitamin C content is 58mg per 100g
ORAC antioxidant score is 612,000 per 100g
