Freeze Dried Acai What Makes it Better?

 


Visitors: 393

The Acai berry has been getting so much buzz about it's health promoting benefits, but is all acai created equally? Unfortunately for buyers of Acai the answer is no. So what Acai is the real deal and has all the health benefits being advertised? The answer. . . freeze dried Acai.

The idea behind freeze drying is to remove the water from the acai fruit, while keeping the nutritional structure of it intact. Freeze dried Acia has gone through a special process that actually de-hydrates the fruit. Most fruits, Acai included, are very sensitive to heat. When freeze drying, moisture is removed from the Acai using a very low temperature (-20C).

The process keeps the Acai taste intact, fresh and in its natural color. It also maintains almost all of its vitamins, enzymes and nutrients which include carotene, anthocyanin (antioxidant) and vitamin C.

The freeze drying process takes place in the absense of oxygen and this prevents the fruit from oxidizing. Once a fruit starts oxidizing it will begin to lose its nutritional value. A great benefit of freeze drying is when you add water or other juices to it, it will reconstitute to its original state. This means that the nutritional value has stayed in tact.

Acai, in its natural form, has a very high ORAC value. ORAC is a way to measure the antioxidant capacity of a food. Foods with high ORAC values are desirable for their ability to inhibit free radical activity in the body. Freeze dried Acia has a very high ORAC value compared to other forms of Acai. So when buying acai make sure that it come from a freeze dried source.
