What is acai?
Acai is a blue-purple berry that grows on the Acaiziro palm in the Amazon rainforest. In appearance, acai resembles a combination of blueberries and red grapes. Thanks to the impressive nutritional content, the acai berry is often presented as a super berry. Acai is not pronounced as many people think; "Ah-kye", but with an s instead: "ah-sigh".
Acai berries are very rich in polyphenols, a class of substances that act as an antioxidant in plants. Antioxidants are important for the body because they help counteract free radicals that can accelerate cell aging. Free radicals are constantly formed in our bodies but can increase with, for example, stress and poor eating habits.
In addition to antioxidants, acai berries contain the fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6, as well as vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, vitamin E, iron, potassium, magnesium and calcium. Acai berries are also very rich in fibre, containing as much as 24 grams per 100 grams. Fiber contributes to an increased feeling of satiety and is therefore popular with, for example, diets because it can help keep blood sugar in check.

This means that the product has been heated to a maximum of 42 degrees to preserve as much of the nutrient content as possible. Acai powder ECO from Healthwell is made in Sweden. The powder tastes like something between blueberries and chocolate.
