Produce Express offers pure Acai (pronounced “ah-sigh-EE”) from Amazon Planet. Their Acai is wild-harvested and sourced directly from local farmers based in the Amazon Rainforest where Acai groves are an important part of the fragile ecosystem.
The acai fruit looks a lot like a blueberry, but unlike the pulpy flesh of the blueberry, acai has a hard, inedible seed covered by a very thin, edible skin that is packed with nutrients. The thickness of acai is an indication of how many fruit solids—and therefore nutrients– it contains.Amazon Planet’s Acai maintains the taste of real acai– a velvety, natural, dark chocolate taste- because it is free of additives or filler juices. The mild and creamy acai packs are neither sweet, nor tart, allowing you to sweeten to your customer’s desired taste. Amazon Planet Acai is also certified Kosher, gluten free, and organic with 0g of sugar.
Pack Size: Frozen 100g (3.5oz) pouches (64 pouches/case) OR
Sorbet (3.2 gallon container)- perfect for easy scooping
history & application
Acai bowls have been popping up on menus all over Sacramento, following a craze that has been all the rage among consumers in Southern California and the Bay Area for years. Acai berries became popular in the early 2000s when they were found to improve blood sugar management. Acai berries also contain anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant benefits from polyphenols which are most dark berries such as blackberries and cranberries.
Although acai bowls and smoothies are great on breakfast menus, consumers love acai any time of the day. Acai bowls are a delicious meal replacement when topped with a variety of fruit, granola, nuts, and seeds. Acai is also the perfect alternative to ice cream and frozen yogurt.
