AÇAI - SAPPHIRE OF THE RAINFOREST
In the rainforests of South America grows a rare precious purple in the form of a berry, they call it Acai.
This superfood tastes like berries with a hint of chocolate!
In 2008, Oprah Winfrey and Dr Oz were so amazed by this rare treasure and nicknamed it, “The Superfruit.”
This superfood is packed with 10 times more antioxidants than grapes! It also contains more antioxidants than blueberries, cranberries and strawberries.
Açai is also full of vitamins A, C and E and has loads of fiber. That’s not all, you can find omega 3 and 6 fatty acids together with calcium in this gem.
It is known to possess anti aging properties, making it a sought after ingredient in many anti aging cosmetic products.
What makes this superfood all the more special is that it is hard to find and difficult to harvest. It is harvested by hand from huge acai palm trees that can grow more than 50 feet.
After harvesting, it deteriorates quickly, which is why Respect Açai is freeze dried right after harvesting to maintain all of nature's goodness in our Açai for you.
A majority of the fiber and antioxidants the superfood contains is in its skin and because of that our Açai is grounded into powder with its skin. The freeze dried skin also gives our Açai its spirited purple colour.
At Respect, we are concerned with giving you high quality healthy products and value for your money.
