Every time you indulge in the rich purple power of Açaí, the exotic taste provides a refreshing escape from your day-to-day routine. While there's no doubt that the taste is good, what we truly love about eating Açaí is how it makes us feel - and there are so many reasons to feel better after enjoying SAMBAZON! We've got the scoop (pun intended) on the five reasons eating Açaí every day will make you feel good inside and out!
1. The Taste of Açaí
No one can argue that the taste of Açaí is distinctively unique. Each delicious spoonful contains the taste of mixed berries, dark chocolate, and red wine - who said healthy can't taste and look exquisite? Described as slightly tart with an earthy underlying taste, this versatile fruit can vary depending on what it's mixed with. To get a sweeter flavor, mixing with sweet berries, chocolate and honey will sweeten things up. For a tangier taste, you could blend Açaí with pineapple, orange, or mango. No matter how you blend it, sweet dreams are made of the delicious taste of Açaí.
2. The Nutritional Benefits of Açaí
Açaí berries are wild harvested and have substantial health benefits such as being one of the few commercially sold fruits with virtually no naturally occurring sugar in its natural state - check out a pack of unsweetened Açaí. Açaí is high in anthocyanins. Those are blue, red, or purple pigments found in plants like our Açaí that makes them not only beautiful but good for you! These antioxidants are in the flavonoid family similar to what red wine, tea, and chocolate contain. As well as being free-radical busters (the job of antioxidants), anthocyanins are also said to offer anti-inflammatory benefits. Açaí naturally contains omegas 3, 6, and 9, and the overall fatty acid profile is similar to that of olive oil. Studies have shown that fatty acids supports heart health, brain function, and healthy skin and hair. Açaí has all this and provides sustained energy. Nutritious, delicious & good for you – what more could you ask for?
3. The People it Supports
SAMBAZON cares about the people at the very source of our product. Our Fair Trade Certification allows us to make a difference in the lives of thousands of Açaí family farmers. For nearly two decades, SAMBAZON has re-invested a portion of our annual Açaí purchases back into the grower communities to support social needs through our Fair Trade Fund. This includes building and renovating schools that service the local communities where the Açaí is harvested, building and remodeling healthcare centers, and improving access to basic education and health services.
Our triple bottom line business philosophy is at the core of our company and ensures that we measure social success based on the efforts made to give back to Açaí growers and their communities. So you know that every time you purchase SAMBAZON Açaí, you are helping in the cause to give back to the family farmers we work with. Our pledge, your impact.
4. The Planet We Care For
The planet is always top of mind when considering business decisions. SAMBAZON's commitment to organic growing is so much more than a certification—it’s a massive effort to help support the biodiversity of the Amazon, protect native species, and operate with as small a carbon footprint as possible. We choose to pursue and practice certified sustainable practices to in turn protect the richness and diversity of the Amazon environment so that we can continue to bring you the Delicious Powers of Açaí. You can read more about the research that's been done to develop our knowledge of the biodiversity in the areas in which our Açaí is wild-harvested here.
5. The Prosperity it Provides
Açaí harvesting and processing is making a significant economic impact in the lives of Brazilians, creating a ripple effect that bolsters the local, regional, and national economy. Each time you purchase SAMBAZON Açaí, you're helping to create this positive economic chain reaction, as well as playing a role in the protection of the biodiversity of the Amazon Rainforest. Taking part in conscious consumerism by voting with your dollar gives us the power to make positive change and create a more prosperous future. You can learn more about our "triple bottom line" business in our documentary Seeding Change, which considers the social, environmental, and financial impact of like-minded companies as we address some of today's most challenging issues.
