How to Use Açai Powder: Recipes, Dosage, and Benefits

The Açai plant originates in the Amazon regions, particularly in Brazil. Its edible fruits are small blue-purple berries that grow in small clusters. However, calling them merely “edible” is an understatement! Açai’s strength lies not only in its numerous properties that support the body’s optimal functioning but also in its truly delicious taste. Let's discover how to best use this fruity powder!

How to Eat Açai, Dosages, and Frequency

This superfood is harvested and processed within a few hours to preserve its organoleptic properties and benefits. The low-temperature processing method, called freeze-drying, allows for the creation of a raw and “active” powder with an intense purple color. Açai has antioxidant properties and is rich in dietary fiber, which helps the intestine function well. It is also a source of vitamin A, potassium, calcium, and iron.

As it is a 100% natural fruit, there are no particular contraindications. Of course, as with any concentrated food, it is best not to overdo the doses. A couple of teaspoons a day is ideal for a nutrient boost!

Recipes and Preparations with Açai

Açai’s flavor is truly pleasant, appealing to everyone, even children. It is delightfully sweet without being cloying, fruity, reminiscent of blueberries and red fruits in general, with a hint of chocolate. This is why it’s perfect for breakfast and snacks, in desserts and spoon desserts, including vegan recipes.

Its main use is in the famous Açai Bowl, a rich bowl made with yogurt or fruit mousse, where the powder is dissolved to give the classic pinkish color. The bowl can then be enriched with fresh and dried fruit, seeds, chocolate, cocoa nibs, and much more.

But Açai is perfect in any beverage, in smoothies and shakes, in juices, for making homemade jams, in pancake and cake batter, in teas and infusions.
