Green Origins Acai Berry Powder: Acai berry is a small purple fruit native to the South American Amazon. Green Origins Acai is typically wild-harvested by cooperatives, like the indigenous community of Porvenir. Community-owned projects create incentives to protect forests – by providing an income and an alternative to work in timber production.
Acai berries are hand-picked, cleaned and de-stoned. The fruit is pureed and freeze dried, to minimise nutrient loss. It takes over 20kg of Acai berry fruit to make 1kg of our Acai berry powder. Acai is a source of Magnesium, which contributes to the maintenance of strong bones and teeth and also supports mental health.
