An extract by definition means that one part of the fruit has been removed from the other part. So someone is deciding which part of the fruit you should get when many experts feel it is probably best to get the whole fruit.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 3, 2008
AcaiBerry-Products.com, a leading international internet destination for general information and product information about the popular acai berry fruit from the Amazon rainforest, is recommending freeze dried acai products over juice for consumers seeking the highest potency acai products combined with ease and convenience of use.
Most acai berry juice products are juice blends containing many different ingredients. Sometimes acai berry isn't even the most predominant ingredient. And usually the amount of actual acai in the juice products is unknown and not disclosed on the label.
The popular and nutritionally power-packed Brazilian fruit acai berry has become quite a sensation for health conscious consumers in recent months and years. But the nutritional potency of the various products can vary greatly.
Among the most important things consumers should consider before buying an acai berry product is that the fruit is highly perishable and will begin to lose it nutritional punch within 24 hours of picked. The best way to preserve the nutritional properties of the acaiberry fruit is to remove the pit from the fruit and freeze the skin and pulp and then either package the frozen skin and pulp for delivery or freeze-dry it. This is the only way to capture the full nutritional profile of the product.
There are some companies that sell products with so-called "acai extract" but acai berries are loaded with many nutritional properties which are not present when an extract is created. According to Charles Sanderson, the public relations director for the company "An extract by definition means that one part of the fruit has been removed from the other part. So someone is deciding which part of the fruit you should get when many experts feel it is probably best to get the whole fruit." He adds "We want our customers to get the whole fruit and the whole nutritional profile that the fruit offers." Sanderson says that acai berry fruit is about 90% pit which is of little or no nutritional value so they avoid all acai products that includes the pit. The pit, or seed is often listed on the label as "endocarp."
In Brazil, the acai pit is not eaten by people and is usually discarded. Sometimes it's fed to livestock such as pigs or used to make jewelry. Either way, the company recommends avoiding acai products that include the seed. There is a entire helpful section on the company website that explains which acai berry products to avoid and why.
Sanderson adds "freeze dried acai and specifically our favorite acai supplement called Perfect Acai is as close as most people will get to eating fresh acai berries from the Amazon rainforest in Brazil."
He adds that Perfect Acai really is the perfect acai berry product based on the company's selection criteria which is also published on the website. According to Sanderson "the reason the 'Perfect Acai' product is our favorite and our customers' favorite, is because this product is the purest acai supplement on the market. It's the most potent since it's 100% pure organic acai and it is also priced the best by far."
He adds that "Perfect Acai is the perfect acai product because it fits all of our essential criteria for selecting a quality acai product which includes potency, purity, and price." Sanderson also suggests that using freeze-dried acai in capsule form is a more convenient way for most people to use acai.
