Organic Raw Acerola Powder

Acerola, also known as a Barbados cherry, is a small and sour fruit, native to Central and South America. Sevenhills Wholefoods source our Acerola from Brazil, due to the hot climates and acidic soil, in which the fruit thrives. Resembling the common cherry, Acerola typically has a delicious, sweet flavour, with a slight bite of acid, but has recently drawn significant attention due to its considerable health benefits.

Processing

Our Acerola powder is grown in Brazil, in rainforest conditions. The fruit is picked by hand from the topmost branches of the tree, processed almost immediately, and pressed into a pulp. This pulp is quickly freeze-dried, and the dried product is milled into a fine powder. Processing temperatures remain below 45°C, hence we market this product as raw.

Benefits:

  • Acerola is extremely rich in Vitamin C, which can contribute to normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels, bones, gums, skin, teeth and cartilage.
  • The vitamin C produced by the fruit is better absorbed by humans than even synthetic ascorbic acid.
  • Also contains Potassium, Calcium and Iron. 
  • Is made of bioflavins and carotenoids which provide antioxidant value.
