Acai is an exotic palm fruit from the Amazonian rain forest. The story of acai dates back hundreds of years to its use by the peoples of the Orinoco basin area of Brazil, where the fruit was treasured as a source of sustenance for the people. Acai berries were also used traditionally to support several areas of health, including the digestive system and the skin. More recently, the fruit gained attention in the 1990s when surfers of coastal Brazil reported that beach beverages containing acai provided them with sustained energy levels during their activities.1Scientific research has confirmed the wide-ranging nutritional value of acai fruit, including surprisingly high concentrations of desirable mono- and poly-unsaturated fatty acids in the pulp.2Best Acai contains a potent, certified organic, freeze-dried form of the fruit. Ripe acai fruits that grow wild in the Amazon are harvested at their peak; the skin and pulp are separated from their seeds and dried in a unique, low temperature freeze-drying process that preserves the wholesome goodness of the entire fruit. In order to preserve the fruit's nutritional density and phytochemical composition, processing of the fruit needs to be performed on the day of harvest.2Most 4:1 acai products are "spray dried" powder extracts that contain significant amounts of maltodextrin— unlike Doctor's Best certified organic freezedried acai powder with no added carriers. The process of freeze-drying in fact concentrates the beneficial compounds in acai berries by removing only the moisture content from the fruit.
