Acai, a superfruit with many benefits!
Acai is a berry that grows on the tops of palm trees in the heart of the Amazon.
The berries of this palm have always been found in the traditional diet of Amazonian tribes who use them as a natural remedy against various illnesses (digestive disorders, skin diseases, etc.).
Today, we invite you to discover its taste with fruity and chocolate flavors for breakfast, instead of a meal, or after physical activity.

The legend of the crying fruit
A long time ago, there lived a young Amazonian Indian woman called Iaca. His father was the leader of a tribe that had grown so much that there was no longer enough food for all his people. The chief then decreeded that all the newborns must be killed. But some time later, Iaca gave birth to a child from whom she had to separate.
After crying over her child for days, one evening Iaca heard a baby whining from outside. She found no one, but, exhausted, lay down under a palm tree covered with fruit that had just emerged from the ground.
The next day, the tribe discovered Iaca's body under the new tree. Intrigued by this palm tree that they had never seen, the villagers ate the fruit which satisfied them. The chief then repealed his cruel decree and declared that these fruits would henceforth bear his daughter's name, but in reverse: Iaca becoming Acai.
With the abundance of food, the tribe grew and flourished.
This is how, for decades, açai has been appreciated by all the Brazilian people.
