Look, feel & age better with Açaí Wonder berry of the Amazon
Australians are about to be let in on an Amazonian secret; a powerful little berry called Açaí. Pronounced 'ah-sigh-EE' this little berry has been a staple part of the Amazonian Indian diet for centuries and is coming to Australia.
Açaí is a potent antioxidant that also contains the same cholesterol controlling essential fatty acids as olive oil. It is also a rich source of iron, calcium, vitamin e and fibre. Named by Dr Nicholas Perricone on Oprah as the number one Top Ten Superfoods for Age-Defying Beauty, Açaí was described as "This little berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world."
Açaí has taken the USA by storm and has surpassed wheatgrass shots in popularity in the competitive juice bar market. Barry Vaughan, Australian Director of Nu Fruits of the Amazon predicts similar success for NU Açaí in Australia, "After discovering it in Brazil we just knew we had to bring it out to Australia. Nu Fruits is confident that the savvy health conscious consumers in Australia will be quick converts to the Amazonian wonder berry, Açaí" said Barry.
The most amazing surprise about Açaí is the taste, which is unlike any other fruit currently available in Australia. With overtones of chocolate and cherry it's a flavour you just have to try for yourself.
Nu Fruits of Australia imports Açaí to Australia directly from Brazil where it is grown in a sustainable and naturally organic environment. Nu Fruits imports Açaí in a pasteurised pulp which is then shipped to Australia in refrigerated cargo ships.
As Açaí spoils very quickly, you won't be able to buy it from your local green grocer any time soon, so the only way for Australians to try Açaí at the moment is at Pulp Juice Bars where you can buy "The Power of the Amazon Smoothie" from their 147 stores nationally.
Nu Fruits expects to be supplying Australians with the delicious and nutritious Açaí berry in a variety of forms including cereals, muffins, health food stores and supermarkets by the end of the year.www.nufruits.com
