About

Açaí (pronounced Ah-sah-ee) is an ancient berry which grows along the banks of the Amazon river on açaí palm trees. It’s about the size of a grape and its incredible dense purple colour has been used as a staple food by indigenous tribes for centuries. Kilo for kilo the açaí berry contains more antioxidants than any other fruit in the world. It is densely packed with essential fatty acids, protein, calcium, vitamins A & C, and other minerals unique to the Amazon soil. In Brazil, açaí is commonly eaten in a bowl. Raw pulp from the frozen berries is blended with a dash of guarana syrup and typically served topped with banana and granola. It’s the staple food of the locals who eat it any time of the day for a healthy breakfast or as a snack after sport or a trip to the beach.
