Organic Acai Powder
Organic acai powder (freeze-dried) is made from acai berries, super-fruits with tremendous health benefits. Acai berries have more antioxidants than almost any other fruit and contain high levels of essential fatty acids, amino acids, and dietary fiber. The rich nutritional value of acai berries is retained in our high-quality organic acai powder.
How to Enjoy Acai Powder
Our premium, organic acai powder is best used mixed with foods and drinks and not eaten straight. The powder has a unique, slightly tart, tropical taste and can easily add a major antioxidant boost to your diet. Blend a few teaspoons of acai powder with your favorite fruits and milk for a refreshing smoothie or juice. Mix acai powder into a yogurt parfait or sprinkle it on top of your morning oatmeal. It’s also delicious with desserts like tart frozen yogurt, and makes a wonderful addition to chia seed pudding. Check out the lower right side of the page for more delicious acai powder recipes.
A 0.4 ounce serving of acai powder is equivalent to approx. 2.5 teaspoons.
Health Benefits of Acai Powder
The main reason for acai berries' popularity is their extraordinary nutritional benefits. A large part of the berries' nutrient content is preserved in the freeze drying process.
1) Antioxidant Powerhouse: Full of antioxidants, acai berries have tested very well at defending the body by combating free radicals associated with disease and aging. Consumption of acai pulp and acai juice actually increases antioxidant concentration in the blood, which shows that the nutrients are effectively absorbed by the human body; these findings are the results of a 2008 study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
2) The Good Fats: Organic acai powder is a rich source of omega fatty acids (omega 3, 6, and 9) which are essential for human health. Omega-3 is the same essential fatty acid found in fatty fish, like salmon, which American diets often don't have enough of. The combination of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids plays an important role in regulating metabolism and supporting heart health. These two essential fatty acids are required through diet since our bodies cannot produce them naturally. Acai powder contains Omega-9 fatty acid in the form of oleic acid, which has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and lower LDL "bad" cholesterol levels.
3) Loaded with Nutrients: Acai berries are also an excellent source of amino acids, dietary fiber, calcium, and vitamin A. By weight, freeze-dried acai powder consists of nearly 8 percent amino acids, which help make proteins and support our metabolism. The powder's rich dietary fiber content supports digestive health and keeps us feeling full longer. Calcium supports the development and structure of our bones, while vitamin A protects the eye's retina.
Acai Powder: Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick
Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut stirs acai powder into yogurt for an antioxidant boost. She also loves that acai powder provides 4 grams of fiber in a 0.4 ounce serving.
Origin of Acai Powder
The acai palm (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) is native to the tropical Amazon regions of Brazil and Peru. Fresh acai berries look like a cross between blueberries and grapes, and have historically been a large part of the diets of many poor and indigenous Brazilians. Since acai berries were first brought to the United States early last decade, their growing popularity has been a source of prosperity and sustainability to many regions of Brazil. As acai palms are difficult to grow outside of the Amazon and the berries are highly perishable, acai is normally found only in powder form.
