|Acai Berry FAQ | Acai Berry Frequently Asked Questions|
is the Acai berry called a "super food"?
The Acai berry is loaded with antioxidants and contains a lot of fibres, healthy monounsaturated fats, iron and amino acids.I've heard a lot about the Acai berry lately. Can I get your opinion on it?
The scientific community are very interested in studying indigenous cultures that have long revered certain foods for health and medical benefits. For example in Australia there are foods like Kakadu plum and now to little berries from the Amazon. It would seem that the phytochemicals contained within fruits hold potent health benefits. The Acai berry is one of these popular ones that have many benefits on a health level as well as lifestyle. This would also apply to the Pomegranate juice which is becoming available to various countries around the world. The only real difference is many fruit juices are sugar water not real juices.
Do Acai berry based products use recycled glass in its glass bottles?
In some cases there are companies which do use recycling services and strongly encourage customers to take advantage of recycling glass in their own state and country where applicable.
Why do some Acai berry based products contain the preservative sodium benzoate?
Sodium benzoate, an organic chemical preservative, can prevent the growth of almost all micro-organisms (e.g., yeast, bacteria, and fungi) and occurs naturally in some fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, nuts, wines, and teas.
If someone is allergic to shellfish can they consume glucosamine hydrochloride?
Shellfish are a known allergen and glucosamine is derived from prawn / shrimp shells. People who are allergic to shellfish are actually allergic to a protein known as “Troponin” which is found in the muscle of prawns / shrimp. Analysis of various Acai berry gels available has indicated there is no protein in the glucosamine hydrochloride.
Glucosamine hydrochloride, the form of glucosamine found in various Acai berry gels is more than 99% pure. Because shellfish is a known allergen please speak to a doctor before purchasing any Acai berry gel products.
Yes as a general rule of thumb but you may need to check the product label first.
