The Acai berry is indigenous to the Amazon rainforests and is deep purple in colour as is the powder. To make the powder the berries are de-seeded, freeze dried and ground into a powder. Supplied in a resealable foil pouch.
Acai berry powder is nutrient rich, containing Vitamin A, Calcium, Potassium, Vitamin E and Iron and also amino acids, flavonoids, fibre and antioxidants.
Acai berry powder is often associated with weight loss, although it does contain a relatively high amount of fat it is a very nutritious food and therefore an ideal supplement for those on a limited diet.
How To Use Acai Powder
There is no recommended dosage for organic acai powder, although approximately 2 tsps a day is often suggested to help supplement your intake of the vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids.
It is a staple food in Brazil and can be added to most food and drink to add nutritional value (does not mix well with water on its own). It is often touted as a fat loss aid but with little scientific evidence so far, so is best consumed as a healthy supplement. Acai contains very little natural sugar so does not have a sweet fruity berry taste – more savoury and business-like!
There are no reported side effects unless you have a specific allergy to acai, however if you do have an adverse reaction then you should stop using this immediately. Processed in a facility that handles nuts and seeds.
