Acerola is not only delicious with its peculiar sour taste but this superfruit has one of the highest Vitamin C concentrations in nature. Furthermore, Acerola contains a lot of antioxidants. Our suggestion? Mix Acerola with sweeter fruits such as Mango or add a kick to your traditional boring Orange juice – a classic combo from Rio de Janeiro juice parlors.

As a highly perishable fruit, Acerola is often consumed worldwide as a powder - unfortunately this process makes the fruit lose some of its beneficial components. Our 100% bio pulp Acerola solves this problem: our fruits are shock-frozen immediately after harvesting, preserving almost all the vitamins and nutrients.

Health benefits

The fruit is known for its high concentration of Vitamin C - 50% to 100% higher than that of citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons. Vitamin C is important for the immune system improving its capacity to fight infections. In addition to preventing colds and flu, the nutrient makes the duration of illnesses shorter. What's more, high vitamin C levels are linked to elevated mood and lower levels of depression and anger - eating foods rich in this vitamin may improve overall mood.

Furthermore, Acerola contains a healthy array of antioxidants such as flavonoids, carotenoids, anthocyanins and quercetin. Antioxidants neutralize the action of free radicals that trigger the premature aging process and help collagen production to increase, improving the skin and warding off the appearance of wrinkles. As it is rich in potassium — 100 g of the fruit contain 138 mg of this mineral — consumption of Acerola can improve heart health, since the mineral acts to control blood pressure. This helps preventing cardiovascular disease. In addition, antioxidants help prevent atherosclerosis, a health condition that clogs blood vessels and causes heart attacks and strokes.
