What is acai?
Acai is a berry grown in South America. They contain lots of fiber, antioxidants, calcium and omega-3 fatty acids. Many people claim that acai can have magical powders when it comes to your health, however that is not true. It does provide many benefits but should be combined with a balanced diet to make sure you get all of the nutrients your body needs.
Where can I buy acai?
Acai can be found in most grocery stores in the frozen fruit section. It generally comes as 4 packets in 1 bag. It can be purchased sweetened or unsweetened in some stores as well. Chose whichever your prefer.
