Why You Can’t Buy Acai Berry Juice in the Supermarket

Search your local supermarket for this tiny grape-like fruit (grown in the Amazon rainforest) and you are unlikely to find it – especially fresh. Even if you want to buy acai berry juice in a sealed bottle you will find it near impossible to find.

Despite numerous endorsements for acai berries by Rachel Ray, Brad Pitt (during his film ‘Burn after Reading’) and Julia Roberts the only real way of obtaining this nutrient dense product is online.

The main problem is that acai berries, once picked, degenerate quickly. Within 24 hours of being harvested, the potency of the acai berry’s numerous nutrients are lost and it becomes less effective. Eating fresh Acai is next to impossible – unless you live near Brazil!

Fortunately for the consumer, advancements in flash freezing (a process used in the food industry to quickly freeze perishable food items) has meant that acai berry can now be more easily preserved and converted into juices, purees, powders and supplements.

Yet even then being able to reliably buy acai berry juice or other acai berry products is difficult.

Due to its location and the cost of processing, by the time this product reaches the supermarket shelves it has dramatically risen in price. The only real affordable way to access acai berry is to buy it online.

Search Google and you’ll find a number of reputable sources for this nutritious fruit who will happily allow you to buy acai berry juice or supplements and will ship them to anywhere in the world – whatever the cost. The only thing you should be conscious of is the quality of these products when you are researching them. Just because something is expensive doesn’t mean the quality is good.

It’s a good idea to first check how the berry has been processed. If it has undergone anything other than flash freezing, then don’t buy it. Any other process will result in a degenerated berry. If you do buy acai berry juice or other products that haven’t been flash frozen when picked you could potentially be investing in a product that may have lost a significant amount of its nutrients along the way.

One acai berry product I can recommend is Pure Acai Berry. This is made from 100% pure, unaltered acai berry, and is easily the most potent acai berry product on the market offering consumers 1500mg (that’s a lot!) per serving. However the most notable element to this supplement is its backing and credentials:

  • Certificates of analysis and purity
  • Immediate fast weight loss from day 1
  • Quality assured, produced in CGMP facilities
  • Powerful antioxidant support – highest ORAC rating
  • 100% Organic

The market is teaming with acai berry products. So be very careful what you choose. Because of the price you cannot buy acai berry juice from the supermarket nor any of the other acai berry products. So when you do purchase from the internet, pick a reputable dealer.
