A SIMPLE WAY TO A WHOLESOME LIFE
CELEBRATING THE PEOPLE BEHIND OUR AÇAÍ
We honor the people who harvest the açaí berries in the Amazon rainforest by naming each of our bowls after them. At our establishment, we not only prioritize the quality and taste of our food, but we also prioritize the people who make it possible for us to offer our customers the finest açai bowls. We believe that it is essential to recognize and celebrate the individuals who dedicate their time and energy to harvesting the açaí berries, which are a vital part of our menu.
By celebrating the people behind our açai, we hope to raise awareness of the vital role they play in our food production and the importance of supporting local communities. We take pride in our commitment to ethical and responsible sourcing, and we believe that by working together, we can make a positive impact on both our community and the environment.
WHAT IS AÇAÍ?
WHAT IS AÇAÍ?
Acai [a-sa-ji] bowls originate from acai berries, which, in 93% of cases, come from the Amazon in Brazil. Acai berries are therefore derived from plant-based resources, they are gluten-free, and are not commonly associated with food allergies. This makes acai berries a superfood known for being particularly rich in vitamins and minerals. They are packed with antioxidants, and acai berries are also rich in omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids. This contributes to the health of your heart and brain.
The production, as previously mentioned, comes from the Brazilian rainforest, and the harvesting of acai berries involves minimal water consumption and no soil degradation. They grow naturally in the rainforest and are part of the local ecosystem. Traditional harvesting of acai berries involves selectively picking ripe berries, which minimizes damage to the trees, allowing them to continue producing berries in the future. Additionally, the acai palm contributes to the biodiversity of the Amazon and plays a central role in rainforest conservation to prevent deforestation.
In addition to being an important resource for sustainability, acai berries are highly nutritious. They are a source of fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants.
