Acai

Acai

Acai (pronounced "ah-sigh-EE") is a small purple berry native to the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. It grows on acai palm trees and is known for its high antioxidant content and potent health benefits. 

Frozen acai pulp is made by blending the berries and freezing the resulting puree, which allows for easy transportation and storage. This product is available all year round, but the peak season for fresh acai berries is from June to December. To ensure that your frozen acai pulp is ripe, look for a deep purple colour and a smooth texture. The product should be stored in the freezer and will last for several months.

When preparing acai, the frozen pulp is often blended with other ingredients, such as fruit, juice, and sweeteners, to make a smoothie-like drink. It can also be used as a base for bowls, added to desserts, or used in cooking and baking. Some popular recipes made with acai pulp include acai smoothie bowls, acai sorbet, and acai-based sauces and marinades.

In terms of health benefits, acai berries are rich in antioxidants, which help to protect the body against damage from free radicals. They are also high in fiber, which can help to promote digestive health. In addition, some studies have suggested that acai may have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, although more research is needed in these areas.

Overall, frozen acai pulp is a versatile and flavourful ingredient that is packed with nutrients and potential health benefits. Whether you're making a smoothie, a bowl, or a dessert, this product is a great addition to any diet.
