Properties

Acai berry powder is nutrient rich, containing Vitamin A, Calcium, Potassium, Vitamin E and Iron and also amino acids, flavonoids, fibre and antioxidants.

Uses

Acai berry powder is often associated with weight loss, although it does contain a relatively high amount of fat it is a very nutritious food and therefore an ideal supplement for those on a limited diet.

How To Take Or Use Acai Berry Powder

There is no recommended dosage for organic acai powder, although approximately 2 tsps a day is often suggested to help supplement your intake of the vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids.
It is a staple food in Brazil and can be added to most food and drink to add nutritional value (does not mix well with water on its own). It is often touted as a fat loss aid 
but with little scientific evidence so far, so  is best consumed as a healthy supplement. Acai contains very little natural sugar so does not have a sweet fruity berry taste - more savoury and business-like!
