  • CAMU CAMU POWDER Overview

    Camu Camu (Myrciaria dubia) is fairly new to the global market, and while you probably won’t find the raw fruit at your local grocer, the powder is becoming more available worldwide. This fruit grows on low lying shrubs, mostly in flooded areas of the Amazon forest in Peru, Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela. Although it is considered a berry, the fruit is about the size of a lemon, but is reddish and/or yellow in color. The camu camu shrub is closely related to the rumberry, also known as a guavaberry. Due to its high Vitamin C content, the fruit has an excessively sour taste, which is why it is usually consumed as a powder mixed in smoothies and juices. However it is eaten as a raw fruit in indigenous areas for its nutritional value and it’s believed medicinal benefits.

  • CAMU CAMU POWDER Benefits

    The biggest benefit to camu camu is that it is bursting with vitamin C, roughly 60 times more per serving than an orange. It has one of the highest concentrations of Vitamin C per serving of any food source. It is concentrated even further when it is converted to powder, so yes that percent of daily serving you see on the label is correct! It’s a punch of flavor and vitality with its abundance of antioxidants, amino acids and carotenoids. South Americans have touted camu camu benefits for thousands of years and they are just now starting to share their coveted fruit.
