Raw Acai Powder ~ Antioxidant SuperFruit by VivaPure
Acai (pronounced Ah-sigh-ee) is most known for its high concentration of the antioxidant anthocyanin which is the same purple pigment found in red grapes, blueberries, and purple corn.
Acai fruit is a popular energy food to the indigenous communites of Brazil and we espeically love acai for all the gorgeous essential fatty acids it contains as well! Viva Pure offers this anti-oxidant packed superfood in a convenient freeze-dried whole berry powder, preserving much of the nutritional content and enzymatic activity, it takes 10 kilos of acai fruit to make 1 kilo of powder.
Acai powder makes a great addition to smoothies, yogurts,dessert and especially chocolate recipes, lending its stunning purple colour to all it is added to. Although this purple powder is derived from the Acai berry, it is not very sweet in taste, but has a very rich dark flavour.
Acai is popular in it's juice form, although fresh acai deteriorates quickly, so most acai found in the UK has been pasteurised and is not raw.
Most people know Acai for its connection with weight loss and metabolism support, this is because the pulp of this amazing fruit contains very powerful antioxidants that help in cleansing your system. When your digestive system is kept clean it results in regular bowel movements, which enables the body to release any toxic obstacles and easily release excess fat (which is just stored toxins). It also has properties that can increase your metabolic rate, meaning that you when you consume this fruit, you can burn more calories than you would otherwise normally burn.
The benefits of drinking a daily glass of red wine for its anthocyanin (antioxidant) properties are put in the shade by the amazing Acai berry, which actually contains anything from 10 to 30 times more anthocyanins.

Many of our customers mix Acai Powder with water or juice, but because our Acai Powder doesn't contain any additives or carriers, it doesn't dissolve well in water. So, for best results we suggest mixing it with a smoothie or yogurt.
