Açaí is a small, dark purple berry that comes from the açaí palm tree (Euterpe oleracea). The berry is grown in the Amazonian forests of South America. It has a flavour that's somewhere between dark chocolate and wild berries.
Why are they good for me?
- rich in proteins, vitamins B1 and E, minerals such as iron, phosphorus, calcium and potassium and anthocyanins, which are potent antioxidants
- it is an excellent energetic replenishing
- contains essentials fatty acids omega 3, 6 and 9 which helps in the regeneration of cells, reduces cholesterol and helps with heart problems
- extremely rich in organic vegetable proteins (has more protein than eggs) that do not produce cholesterol during its digestion and it is much easier to be digested and assimilated by our body than animal protein.
