AçaiVida® is a new improved Açai juice powder from the Açai fruit tree, the Amazon’s “Tree of Life.” Labeled as nature’s most nutritious fruit, Açai berry’s fame is growing rapidly as a nutrient powerhouse. The exceptional water dispersibility of AçaiVida® enables its use in a much wider variety of products than ever before. With a deliciously sweet taste, it is both Kosher and GMP certified.
Açai is used commercially for making ice cream, jelly, liquors, as well as a natural food colorant. It is a popular ingredient in many functional foods and beverages, from cereal and granola bars to pet food.
AçaiVida®has been especially designed to meet the requirements of many formulas for a highly water dispersible Açai powder with less carrier content and no filler added. Our R&D team also discovered a unique technology to reduce some of the oil content that is normally present in Açai powders. This ensures that AçaiVida® notably has less clumping issues than other Açai Juice Powders.

The small berry is a powerhouse of nutrients and has an almost perfect composition of essential amino acids with an abundance of valuable trace minerals and micronutrients. Consumers are increasingly discovering the benefits of Açai superfruit, with sales estimated at US$696 million in 2016, and expected to reach US$2,285 million in 2026.1
Açai is the subject of ongoing studies and new and exciting discoveries continue to be made.
Açai berry is the richest known source of anthocyanins, potent plant compounds responsible for the deep purple to black color in fruits, vegetables and flowers. The word anthocyanin comes from two Greek words meaning “plant” and “blue.” Foods richest in anthocyanins include blueberries, red grapes, red wine and açai berry.
Growing wild in the Amazon Rainforest on the high branches of tall palm trees, açai is found in several different places in Brazil, but the best açai comes from the Para region, which has very rich soil and a heavy concentration of limestone, helping to improve the taste and nutrient content of the açai grown there.
Harvested indigenously, NP Nutra® works with over 140 native families in Brazil. Harvesters sail down the rivers, collecting ripe fruits in baskets from trees up to 80 feet tall. The fruit is taken by boat and truck to the nearest NP Nutra® production facility where it is rapidly processed in order to avoid oxidation, creating pure, fresh AçaiVida®.*
