Acai is the original Brazilian super fruit! It is native to the Amazon, it is grown on Acai Palm Trees in the rainforests of Central and South America, where they are a staple food. Recently, it has gained global popularity for its many health and well being benefits. While Acai Berries are incredibly healthy, we have not yet found the ideal method of consumption here in the states. Acai bowls, juices and purees are all popular….but they have high amounts of added sugar, which make it unhealthy. Here at The Golden Leaf we had a bright idea…..add real freeze dried Organic Acai Berries (with skin and pulp) to naturally sweet aged balsamic vinegar…..and you have a treat that is both healthy and delicious!
The first ever pure Acai Balsamic Vinegar is incredibly high in antioxidants! Blueberry have an antioxidant capacity or ORAC score of 4,669. Acai Berries on the other hand, have an ORAC score of 15,405!! Gram for gram, it has more antioxidants than any fruit or berry out there! The antioxidant anthocyanin is responsible for improving HDL or good cholesterol and reducing LDL or bad cholesterol. This antioxidant also boosts brain function. It counteracts the damaging effects of inflammation and oxidation in brain cells, which negatively effect memory and learning. Acai can also help improve memory in the elderly, by stimulating autophagy. Autophagy is the process by which the brain cleans out toxic cells or cells that are no longer working, to make room for new nerves to form, thus enhancing the connection between brain cells.
This one-of-a-kind balsamic vinegar is flavored with all natural, simple and limited ingredients. Made with freeze-dried fruits and vegetables; not preservative laden purees, juices or unnatural chemical extracts. The absence of water will ensure that it ages smoothly and more importantly, that it will taste even better as it ages and lock in the nutritional benefits! The ingredients in our Organic Acai Berry Balsamic Vinegar are balsamic vinegar of Modena IGP and organic freeze-dried acai berries.
Every step of the way, we make sure to provide superior quality, to ensure we provide a healthy, quality product. We add our ingredients through the brand new and superior method of vacuum blending. Normally, blending in fruit or vegetables would cause oxidation. When you leave an apple out and exposed, it turns brown. This is oxidation. Oxygen much like water, can not only cause fruit to rapidly expire without preservatives, but neutralizes the antioxidant activity. As our fruits are freeze-dried, expiration is not a concern, but we did want to make sure our superior nutritional profile was not hampered by oxidation. Vacuum blending also provides a profoundly more fresh and flavorful taste.
