Have you tried Açaí yet? Its a “super food” which has been prominent in American culture for about 15-20 years. But many people have yet to try it because they don’t know what it is. They didn’t grow up with it on their dining room table so it is still somewhat of a mystery. We get it. That is why we put together this post to better explain the fruit.

Have you tired Açaí?

The Açaí  berry is found growing on tall Açaí palm trees in South America. The fruit itself is very much like a grape in size and appearance. But the Açaí berry is much more densely packed with nutrients. And it is low calories (only 70 calories per cup). So you can see why they make for a great and delicious treat.

Let’s now take a look at what nutrients the Açaí berry provides:

  1. Antioxidants: These help protect your cells and build strong bones and marrow.
  2. Fiber: You already know that fiber is great for metabolism and waste elimination.
  3. Healthy Fats: Plant fats are much healthier than animal fats.
  4. Calcium: Think bones and teeth.
