Naturya’s Açaí Powder is made from Açaí berries, the small fruit of the Açaí palm. The Açaí berries grow in bunches, and are similar in appearance to grapes, growing to about 1 inch in diameter. Each berry contains one large seed, which accounts for 87% of the fruit.
Açaí palms are native to South America1 and grow up to 15-30m tall.They thrive in the swampy, humid conditions found in the Amazon River delta2. Açaí is a popular part of the Brazilian diet, particularly in Pára, where a marketplace in the city of Belém reportedly sells 204000kg of Açaí per day during the peak harvest season.
