This wild jungle berry has one of the highest recorded sources of vitamin C (more than oranges or lemons, and higher than acerola fruit). The fruit also contains natural rutin and bioflavanoids which can increase the effects of Vitamin C. Camu Camu Mega–C™ contains nutrients such as iron, phosphorus, beta carotene, calcium, vitamin B1, B2 and B3, as well as a comprehensive complex of amino acids. This species grow wild in abundance in swamps along rivers and lakes in Peru, Amazonian Brazil and Venezuela.
This is a tangy, light colored Camu Camu powder derived from the tart juice of the Camu Camu berry. The berries are harvested at peak Vitamin C content when slightly immature. The juice is cold-pressed in stainless steel equipment and then spray-dried on a base of tapioca starch. The resulting powder is typically light, yellow-pink in color, fluffy and blends well in liquids. It is mild flavored and has an acidic, strawberry-lemon flavor. This is our most popular Camu Camu due to its fluffy texture and lighter flavor profile.
An excellent source of natural vitamin C, it is perfect for use in juices, smoothies, teas, pastries or food bars.
