Acai Berry Products
Indigo Herbs Organic Acai Berry Products are sourced from the Amazon rainforest where the berries grows in abundance.
Our Organic Acai Berry Powder consists of fresh, freeze-dried Acai Berries, milled into a fine purple powder. The best fruit is purportedly those berries which have a powdery silvery sheen across their skin. Produced without preservatives or irradiation, it is these high quality Acai fruits which make up Indigo Herbs pure Organic Acai Powder.
Throughout South America the Acai, or Cabbage Palm, is quite common being a staple for many generations of indigenous rainforest cultures. The tree is used in every facet of forest life from food, drinks, housing materials, clothing, household wares, tools and weapons. In the Amazon, Acai Berry juice is so popular that there are often little stalls called acailandia in the villages and towns along the river selling the drink.
Growing from anywhere between 15-25 metres in height, the Acai palm produces both female and male flowers which are quite small and can range from brown to purple in colour. Each tree can crop up to 1000 kg of berries during the dry season between May and November. The amount of fruit that each palm produces makes the Acai Berry an economical crop for consumption and sale for many of the more deprived people of the region.
