Found exclusively in the Brazilian Rainforest, the exotic Açai berry's royal purple pigment is a potent source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Açai Berry has been enjoyed for decades by the people of Brazil, who typically eat the pulp as an energizing snack throughout the day.
Açai only grows in the Amazon Rainforest and is very perishable. Due to the high fat content (30-50%), the berries go rancid within a day of being picked.
This means it is not feasible for Acai berries to be exported to other countries because they would go bad before they ever reached our fruit markets.
The good news is, some companies have developed a process to export frozen Açai pulp and freeze dried Açai powder. While frozen Açai is great if you want to make a smoothie or desert, Açai powder can be put in capsules to make Açai supplements. You can find Açai Berry in many stores and on the web. It is definitely worth trying!
