Source and Processing
Navitas Naturals Acai Power comes from the low-lying coastal areas of Brazil. Due to the delicate nature of the berry, the fruit is transported immediately after harvest where it is hand-inspected for quality. The whole berries are then freeze-dried and low temperature milled to ensure maximum nutrient content, resulting in a powder that is both nutrient-rich and easily integrated into your favorite recipes. The only ingredient in our wonderful Acai Power is pure 100% organic acai that is also certified kosher and vegan.
Super Palm of the Amazon
Native to the tropical floodplains of Central and South America, acai berries grow on tall palm trees extending up to 25 feet high, which are climbed and harvested by hand. Acai has enjoyed a long history of popularity extending thousands of years: from ancient Amazonian tribes using it medicinally, to modern Brazilian surf cultures prizing acai as an excellent energy food. Navitas Naturals offers this superfood in a convenient freeze-dried whole berry powder.
