GO SuperfoodsAcerola vitamin powder - organic
Acerola berries are among the fruits richest in vitamin C (up to as much as 40 times that of oranges) and antioxidants. This lyophilized (freeze-dried) acerola powder not only offers its pure acerola taste and its richness in natural vitamin C but many other health items including its high levels of secondary plant compounds.

Latin name: Malpighia Emarginata
100% Acerola powder*
* certified organic agricultur.
PRODUCTION PROCESS: Raw material reception, freezer storage, freeze drying (vacuum and low heat application), milling, screening, packaging.
The Harvest normally takes place when the berries are still green as this can mean they hold up to twice as much vitamin C as the ripened fruits. We source our freeze dried Acerola powder from Brazil, one of the world’s largest producers of Acerola. The fruits themselves deteriorate quickly once harvested, becoming essentially unusable within 3-5 days. For this reason, we freeze-dry our Acerola to preserve as much of the nutritional content as possible.
