Açaí Brief Overview
Açaí berries (pronounced, ah-sigh-EE) are a deep dark purple berry harvested from Açaí Palm Trees found in rainforests of South America. Açaí berries have a short shelf life, and therefore we purchase the berries as a frozen fruit purée. The Açaí berry, unlike most fruit, which is high in sugar and low in fat is just the opposite— somewhat higher in fat, low in sugar and one of the richest sources of plant antioxidants with three times the amount of antioxidants found in blueberries.
