What is an acai berry?

An acai berry is the small, round, black-purple soft fruit of the Euterpe oleracea, more commonly known as the acai palm. This name is a Portuguese adaptation of the Tupian word ïwaca'i, which means, “[fruit that] cries or expels water”.

The trees this fruit grows on are native to both Central and South America, seeing as the swamplands and floodplains of these areas provide them with an ideal climate in which to flourish.

How this tree and its fruit are used

In the areas it grows, the leaves are often made into useful items such as hats, mats and roof thatch for homes, while the wood of the acai berry palm tree is used in construction. This is down to the wood acting as a natural pest repellent.

As well as having its practical uses, this tree is used for food. The trunk can be processed in order to yield minerals and the palm heart is widely regarded as a delicacy. This being said, it is the acai berry that the palm produces that is used the most as a food source.

The fruit can be enjoyed without any formal preparation, however it is popular for it to be served in Brazil and a number of other South American countries as a frozen mashed up pulp, which can be eaten with granola and oats. Furthermore, acai berry is included as an ingredient in a range of items, from juices to alcoholic beverages.

The food source this berry provides is known to be very important to some cultures. One study has discovered that 3 traditional Caboclo populations in the Brazilian Amazon featured acai berry as a major part of their diet, making up over 40% of everything they ate.

This might be because the fruit has since been shown to be a rich source of vitamins A and C, as well as containing powerful antioxidants, iron and amino acids.

Acai berry food supplement

Consuming the berries can help to provide your body with a high level of antioxidants, in addition to vitamins and minerals.

The only issue is that you might need to eat large quantities of the fruit in order to get the most out of them. Fortunately, supplements created out of this berry have been developed to help people get a high strength serving of this superfood. This is certainly more convenient and cost effective than eating your way through all those berries!
