Acai - the wonder-fruit

The juice produced from the acai palm (Euterpe oleracea) was, until a few years ago, processed only locally and consumed by the population of the Amazon region. The fruit is known to have a short shelf life - harvest to consumption in less that a day - but in recent years freeze drying and processing has made the acai berry accessible to a global market keen to take advantage of the high antioxidant levels locked within the thin outer layers of the fruit.
