How Do You Eat Açaí Berries?
In the past several years, Açaí has become a household name because of its delicious taste and nutritional value. Often regarded as a superfood, Açaí berries have grown to be extremely popular among health-conscious consumers.
You may have noticed that Açaí berries themselves are not available to purchase at supermarkets or grocery stores. So, how are you supposed to actually eat them?
What is Açaí and Where Does It Come From?
Açaí berries are found on the palm trees of the Amazonian rainforest and have historically been a staple of indigenous diets. This nutritional powerhouse is deep purple in color and tastes like a unique mix of mixed berries, dark chocolate, and red wine. Açaí is often regarded as not just delicious, but also as a healthy superfood because it contains antioxidants and healthy omegas.
The Açaí berry itself has a short shelf life, so it is most commonly imported to the U.S. in the form of frozen purée or juice. SAMBAZON created a responsibly-managed supply chain of USDA Organic and Fair Trade Certified Açaí that established a direct connection between Brazilian farmers and the consumer. This process ensures that the product is the highest quality on the market while also being ethically sourced, transported, and processed.
What is the Best Way to Eat Açaí?
Açaí may be consumed in a variety of tasty ways. It is popular as the base of smoothies or bowls using frozen purée. SAMBAZON sells several different frozen açaí purée packs that are the perfect base for any smoothie or bowl.
Açaí bowls have become a staple meal in recent years.. The popularity is warranted -- Açaí bowls are the perfect healthy meal packed with nutrients that will keep you energized all day long.
