- 0.1 kg
Nature’s Superfoods’ Organic Premium Camu-Camu Powder comes from the Amazon rainforest. It contains one of the highest Vitamin C content of 7-10% (lab report) among all fruits (by weight). There are various grades of Camu-Camu Powder and we have chosen the premium grade because only the skin and pulp of the berries are used to make the powder; the seeds (deficient of Vitamin C) are discarded.The Vitamin C content is concentrated in the skin and pulp of the berries. Hence our Camu-Camu powder costs a little more, but you get so much more Vitamin C with every teaspoon.
Traditionally, in Peru, the sour Camu-Camu berries are made into a juice for consumption to improve the immune system, fight viral infections and to maintain optimal eye, skin and gum health. Camu’s most notable nutritional benefit is in its vitamin-C content, which is about 30-50 times more vitamin C than an orange by weight.
CAMU-CAMU: On top of the unusually high amount of Vitamin C, Camu-Camu Powder contains a full spectrum of naturally-occurring antioxidants, amino acids (such as serine, valine, and leucine) and bioflavonoids (such as quercetin, rutin, ellagic acid, catechins, flavonols, among others) which promote the optimal absorption of Vitamin C in the body. Camu also has a variety of other important vitamins and minerals, including Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Potassium, niacin (Vitamin B3), riboflavin (Vitamin B2), and thiamin (Vitamin B1). The skin of the berries, which are in raw Camu powder as well, are rich in antixoxidants like beta-carotenes and anthocyanins.
The benefits of Camu-Camu Berry powder outweigh many other Vitamin C supplement pills which contain mainly isolated ascorbic acid. Raw Camu-Camu Berry Powder is a whole food containing a full spectrum of naturally-occurring antioxidants, amino acids (such as serine, valine, and leucine) and bioflavonoids (such as quercetin, rutin, ellagic acid, catechins, flavonols) which promote the optimal absorption of Vitamin C in the body.
Camu-Camu powder is an excellent and convenient way to top up our daily requirements of natural vitamin-C.
It takes 25kg of whole Camu-Camu berries to produce just 1kg of Raw Camu-camu powder.
Botanical name: Myrciaria dubia
How To Enjoy:
The taste of Camu-Camu powder is sour-ish and bitter. Hence it is best used in recipes which can mask the taste of the powder for example in citrusy juices, honey water, smoothies or recipes which have a strong flavor. Just use 1/2 (half) teaspoon at a time if you do not like it bitter.
1) Mix 1/2 -1 teaspoon (2-4g) powder into honey water, smoothies, juices, dressing, desserts, etc. No suitable for high-heat recipes.
2) Sprinkle a little powder on top of yoghurt, granola or raw desserts to top up your daily Vitamin C requirement
Recommended daily intake: One teaspoon (4g) - provides more than 200mg of full-spectrum Vitamin C. Increase to 2 teaspoons (8g a day) if you are coming down with a cold/viral infection/flu.
