Acerola cherry: a wonderful powerful food
The acerola cherry, or just acerola cherry, scientifically known as Malpighia glabra, is now known to many: This tropical cherry, which grows mainly in South America (but is also grown in Central America and even Texas), is a common component of exotic fruits. juice. And rightly so. Because acerola cherries taste incredibly good, depending on the degree of maturity – and they are also a natural superfood: even small amounts of fruit (according to the recommendations for consumption) can easily cover the daily need for vitamin C of an adult due to their biological composition. We recommend 1 gram of this supplement to the daily dose of acerola powder.
Vitamin C – a versatile substance
The special versatility of vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid) and its enormous importance for the human body ensured decades ago that the vitamin is one of the biggest stars among micronutrients. Especially in its natural form, which is available in this effective natural powder, vitamin C is an impressive substance that shines with its great bioavailability and, among other things, increases the absorption of iron in the body (iron is also a versatile substance!). Vitamin C from cherry acerola supports the normal function of the immune system and helps protect our cells from oxidative damage. With our acerola powder, the required daily amount of vitamin C can be easily absorbed with just one gram of the daily dose.
Acerola and its numerous uses
The acerola cherry (Malpighia glabra), also known as maple cherry, Antila cherry and Jamaican cherry, is a rather small, spherical stone fruit. Since this very soft and extremely sensitive fruit cannot be exported in its normal state when it is in its highest degree of maturity, further processing of acerola takes place immediately after harvest. For example, acerola juices are produced on site, extracts are extracted and the concentrate is processed. Acerola powder is also ground using special procedures that ensure that the nutrient profile of the fruit can be found in the powder. Ground acerola products are often used as supplements to other juices to increase their vitamin content – but jams, ice creams and other products also often contain some form of acerola. The high content of vitamin C in acerola cherries makes the fruit very valuable as a natural food supplement. In order to guarantee this naturalness in the best possible way, we do not use emulator substances (such as cassava maltodextrin).

In addition to its high content of vitamin C, acerola powder has another interesting property: the powder also impresses with its exotic, sour taste, which can be used to add value to fruit juices, breakfast cereals, shakes and, above all, delicious smoothies .

To preserve vitamin C, we therefore recommend preparation raw)
