Natural ingredients manufacturer, NP Nutra®, launched MaquiForza™, a certified organic Maqui freeze-dried Powder, adding to its growing line of premium quality signature ingredients. MaquiForza™ is a high ORAC ingredient designed for manufacturers to innovate and enrich their products with an exceptional variety of antioxidants.

Maqui berries contain astonishing levels of antioxidants, including anthocyanins, delphinidin, malvidin, petunidin, cumarins, triterpenes, flavonoids, and cyanidin. They are also a good source of vitamin C, calcium, potassium, and iron. Maqui berries have traditionally been used to promote strength, endurance, and overall health. The antioxidants in Maqui berries aid normal function of the body's cells, and may help maintain healthy levels of cholesterol and triglycerides.

MaquiForza™ brings an exotic flavor and potency to functional beverages, juices, smoothies, energy drinks, ice creams, snacks, cereals, desserts, energy bars and candies. Because of its high antioxidant levels MaquiForza™ is a popular choice for energy and antioxidant formulas. Applications for MaquiForza™ also include capsules, tablets and nutritional powders.

MaquiForza™ is available as a 100% pure freeze-dried powder, stabilized without preservatives. MaquiForza™ is a versatile ingredient that retains the highest amount of active compounds as well as the color and flavor of Maqui berries. MaquiForza™ is certified organic, GRAS, Kosher and is produced in a GMP certified facility.
