The origin of the  acai

The acai,  (Euterpe oleracea Mart.), also known as Assaí, huasai, or manaca palm,  is widely distributed in the Amazon, and in many parts of the Amazon as a  fruit juice, and when cassava flour is added its consumed as a soup. Its fruit it’s an oval shaped berry, purplish in colour and is red when ripe and green when under ripe . It has been used since ancient times by Amazonian tribes as part of their food and to fight diseases. Studies show that acai contains polyphenolic compounds, mainly anthocyanin type, and it’s Considered a super fruit, for its vitamin C, calcium, iron and aspartic and glutamic acid content.

From the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at the University of Florida (USA), it has been recognized as interesting for use in nutraceutical products for the extensive range of functional properties attributed to food.
