Off the Charts Vitamin C Content
Acerola, also known as the “Barbados Cherry”, is commercially grown and harvested primarily in Brazil. Acerola contains arotenoids, the pigments that give the cherry its red color. Additionally, acerola imparts a distinctive tart flavor that blends well with other juices. Acerola is one of the world’s most potent sources of Vitamin C and bio-flavonoids. Just 150 grams of single strength acerola contains twenty-five times the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C. Acerola puree concentrate, also available as a clarified juice concentrate, can be added to vitamin gummies to help consumers achieve their daily recommended intake of Vitamin C. This “super fruit” is a great source of natural Vitamin C for finished products.
