Product Spotlight: Acerola Puree and Acerola Concentrates 

By: iTi Innovation

Revitalize your product range and captivate consumers with iTi Tropicals’ acerola puree and acerola concentrate. Originating from Brazil, acerola is a powerful and electrifying ingredient that transform any product. Acerola, also known as the Barbados cherry or West-Indian cherry is cultivated across Mexico, Central America, Southeast Asia, India, South America, and the Caribbean, but is commercially grown and harvested primarily in Brazil. Acerola contains carotenoid, the pigments that give the cherry its red color and is a potent source of vitamin C. 

Exceeding the Limits with Vitamin C: Discover Acerola! 

At iTi Tropicals, we’re enthusiastic about acerola puree and concentrate, as it’s a natural source of vitamin C that’s abundant in nutrients. Acerola is renowned worldwide as one of the most potent sources of vitamin C and bio-flavonoids. It’s astounding to know that only 100 grams of single-strength acerola contains 20 times the suggested daily intake of Vitamin C, as well as other vital minerals and vitamins such as vitamin A, potassium, and calcium. 

Acerola as a Natural Alternative to Ascorbic and Citric Acid for Cleaner Labels 

Consumers are increasingly seeking products with clean labels. Acerola provides a natural solution that can replace added ascorbic and/or citric acid. Not only is acerola a natural source of vitamin C, but it can also help reduce pH. Utilizing  acerola as a replacement for ascorbic and/or citric acid can lead to a more consumer-friendly ingredient label. Additionally, adding acerola to a product can help maintain a 100% juice claim, extend shelf life, and provide a tart and delicious flavor. 

Discover What’s Possible with Acerola 

Acerola is a fruit with infinite potential. Its benign flavor blends well with other tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, and banana. In addition, acerola’s acidic bite perfectly balances the sweetness of other fruits. Help consumers meet their daily vitamin C requirements through a range of applications including: 

  • Jams and jellies 
  • Health shots, smoothies, and juice blends 
  • Gummies, fruit snacks, and fruit leathers 
  • Sorbets and frozen novelties 
  • Sauces, marinades, and dressings
