Acerola Powder Organic
Origin of Acerola
The Acerola (Malpighia emarginata) is a broad-branched shrub or tree with slightly hairy branches. Although native to the Caribbean, it is also found in the northern part of South America. The species grows at altitudes of 1500 m. The fruit of this tropical plant is also called the Barbados cherry or West Indian cherry. Acerola cherries are cultivated in Hawaii, Southeast Asia, various parts of South America and the US state of Florida.
Healthy Benefits of Acerola Cherries
The ripe fruit has an orange to dark red skin and measures approximately 2 by 2.5 centimetres. The flesh is an orange-red juicy and sweet-sour vitamin bomb due to its high vitamin C content. Partly thanks to this high vitamin C content, acerola is full of antioxidants. It also contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12, polyphenols and minerals (calcium, iron, magnesium, copper, zinc, phosphorus, selenium and sodium).
Processing into Acerola Powder
The Acerola cherry is dried and then ground into a fine powder.
Applications of Acerola
With all the natural vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals, it is not surprising that Acerola is considered a true superfood. This is why Acerola is frequently used in both vitamin tablets and supplements. But also as a single ingredient it is perfectly suitable for use in yoghurts, shakes and smoothies. At Vehgroshop you can buy Acerola Powder in quantities from 100 grams to 25 kg.
