Acerola Juice Powder - High Vitamin C
Acerola fruit, also known as West Indian Cherry, is a sweet, tart and astringent berry rich in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant providing many health benefits. The vitamin C content is reduced as the berry ripens, and the berry starts to decompose within days of picking, so it is harvested early and freeze-dried or made into a powder format soon after.
The acerola extract global market was valued at US$8,675 million in 2017 and is expected to grow at 8.2% CAGR from 2018 to 2026. The powdered format dominates the market and that trend is expected to continue through the forecast period. Fueling the demand for powdered acerola is the growing demand for natural ingredients in dietary supplements, functional foods, beverages and cosmetics.1
Known as a rich source of vitamin C, acerola berries also contain bioflavonoids (like kaempferol, quercetin and rutin), which are required for the absorption of vitamin C in the body. They are a good source of anthocyanins, which give the skin its red pigment, as well the carotenoids lutein and beta-carotene. The berry is low in fat and a moderate source of various vitamins and minerals.
