How Açaí is made?
Açaí berry has one single seed that makes up over 80% of the fruit. Unlike other fruits or berries, Açaí berries began degrading and breaking down very shortly after harvest due to its unique compositions. It consists of more than 50% essential fatty acid, such as oleic acid (Omega 9), palmitic acid, and linoleic acid (Omega-6). It is this healthy fat content makes Açaí berries so delicate that are easily perishable within 24 hours post-harvesting. As a result, we do not see it in the supermarket.
Unlike other Açaí berry supplements on the market, we used freeze-drying process to instantly capture and preserve the edible parts of the fruit with its nutrition value still retained. With this technology, we are able to take advantage of controlling both the temperature and pressure in a vacuum chamber to allow the frozen water in the Açaí berries to sublime directly from the solid phase to the gas phase in a dehydration process. In contrast to other dehydration methods using high temperatures like spray drying, freeze-drying avoid the direct liquid to gas transition which destroys the nutritional content in the Açaí berries. In addition, freeze-dried materials can be stored at room temperature without refrigeration for many years.

"Antioxidants can stabilize free radicals whch have been found to be one of the causes for cancer.
Not all antioxidants work the same in the body since depending on the uniqueness of their chemical properties, each type of antioxidant is
metabolized in different pathways. Açaí berry especially from Avid Pure, provides a variety of antioxidants that replenish different parts of
your body all at once." - Arthur Wang
