The current go-to trend for health nuts and Instagram fans is the alluring açaí bowl. But what is the story behind this so-called superfood?

Açaí (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) is a dark purple berry native to the Amazon rain forest.

The fruit is a rich source of many vital antioxidants, making it great for boosting immunity; amino acids; fibre; and omegas 3,6,9 which promote brain health.

As the berries are highly perishable, you are best to buy a high quality freeze-dried product. Enjoy this exotic delight in smoothies or breakfast bowls.
