NOW® Acerola Powder is derived from acerola cherries, one of nature's highest sources of vitamin C. The fruit can yield up to 4,000 mg of vitamin C per 100 grams of fresh weight, but on the average yields around 1,500 mg. Our Acerola Powder is a 4:1 extract that yields 180 mg of vitamin C per teaspoon and tastes great!
