Myrciaria dubia is a small, bushy tree native to the Amazon rainforest. The plant grows along riverbanks and has white flowers that ripen into a cherry-like fruit called camu camu. Oftentimes, these fruits are harvested by canoe and are prized for their nutritious value. Our camu camu powder is milled from dried fruits and can be encapsulated, added to smoothies and juices, or employed in culinary dishes such as ice cream and baked goods.
Camu camu is a member of the Myrtaceae family. This bushy tree is native to the riversides of the Amazon, and produces a reddish-purple, cherry-like fruit that is becoming widely known for containing Vitamin C. This super fruit is traditionally harvested via canoe, and one wild tree can produce up to 25 pounds of fruit a year.
The amount of Vitamin C found in the camu Camu fruit is attracting the attention of naturopaths and nutritionists alike. The combination of Vitamin C and the other nutrients in this super fruit is becoming known as a general health boosting essential.
The powdered form can be easily added to smoothies or encapsulated. As the fruit naturally ripens and sweetens the Vitamin C content decreases. Because of this the fruit is harvested early resulting in a highly acidic flavor which can be easily sweetened to taste.
