Navitas Naturals Freeze-Dried Acai Powder Certified Organic Benefits
Source and Processing
Navitas Naturals Acai Power comes from the low-lying coastal areas of Brazil. Due to the delicate nature of the berry, the fruit is transported immediately after harvest where it is hand-inspected for quality. The whole berries are then freeze-dried and low temperature milled to ensure maximum nutrient content, resulting in a powder that is both nutrient-rich and easily integrated into your favorite recipes. The only ingredient in our wonderful Acai Power is pure 100% organic acai that is also certified kosher and vegan.
