What Is Perfect Acai?
Acai (pronounced: ah-sigh-EE ) is a fruit that grows on the Acai Palm Trees in the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil. The Acai berry is small in size (smaller than a grape) and is dark purple in color. Acai is mostly seed, covered in a small amount of pulp. In fact, about 90% of the Acai berry is seed - it is important to note that no one eats the Acai berry seed.
Praised for its array of health benefits, acai is one of the highest rated antioxidant fruits in the world and has been named the world’s #1 superfood.While Acai may be small in size, it packs a nutritional punch unlike any other food in the world...
"Rich in antioxidants and amino acids, açaí is thought
to be one of the most nutritional fruits of the Amazon basin."
The Freeze Dried Acai used in the Perfect Acai has 9x the antioxidant power of blueberries!

Additionally, this amazing acai berry has 10 to 30 times the anthocyanins of red wine!
Processing of Perfect Acai
The acai berry skin and pulp are removed from the seed within 18 hours of the berries harvesting to retain the highest antioxidant level. The freeze-drying process dehydrates the acai skin and pulp without the use of drying agents or chemicals. This method ensures that the taste, color, and all of the nutritional properties of the acai berry are fully retained. It takes about 7 grams of acai pulp and skin to make 1 gram of acai berry freeze-dried powder. The acai powder is then put into vegetable capsules to make Perfect Acai which maintains all the nutritional properties of freshly harvested acai.
Fairly Traded and Certified Organic
Perfect Acai supplements are made exclusively from sustainable, fairly traded, and USDA organic acai. This means that the Amazon locals are paid a fair wage for harvesting the acai berries. With your purchase of Perfect Acai, you are directly contributing to the protection of the Amazon rainforest and its indigenous people.
100% Organic & Fairly Traded Acai
Perfect Acai supplements are made with 100% Freeze Dried, Organic and Fairly-Traded Acai from a region in the Amazon Rainforest where they are able to freeze the berries within 12 - 18 hours after harvesting. To obtain the optimal nutrient content of the Acai Berry with the highest ORAC values we are using the latest technology for freeze-drying.
Our mission is to protect the Amazon Rainforest and improve the lives of the people living there. We have established a true partnership with the indigenous people of the Amazon. This is a collaborative effort that benefits everyone. No acai trees are damaged in the production of our product and the indigenous people profit more from harvesting the berries than they would from chopping down the trees for lumber. Fairly traded means that the locals are paid a fair wage for harvesting the Acai berry fruit.
Preserving and Improving Local Communities
Our supplier is able to maintain the natural balance in these communities by cultivating a continuing supply of their natural resources. They introduce sustainable and self-sufficient business models in the areas they do business and provide year-round employment.
Supporting Social Responsibility
The local people use everything the rainforest has to offer, including the seeds that are a byproduct of the fruit industry. Our supplier helped to initiate programs where the seeds are used in cottage industries to create environmentally friendly jewelry.
Protecting the Planet
We firmly believe that we are helping to protect the planet by making it more profitable for the local people to preserve the rainforest, than to cut down the forest and sell it as lumber.
Estimated preservation reached 15,000 acres in 2008, and is expected to reach 20,000 acres in 2010.
