MAQUI (aristotelia chilensis): Haven't yet heard of it?? You will - the
‘Patagonian Superfruit’ with a super deep purple colour and mild berry
taste is native to Chile and regularly consumed by the Mapuche Indians.
Pronounced ‘mah-KEY’, this Maqui is raw, wild-harvested and freeze-dried
(not spray-dried) for maximum nutrient preservation and has NO fillers
or sweeteners like maltodextrin.
Maqui berry happily grows in over-exploited soils in its native country of Chile, and as such is a great erosion deterrent. The Mapuche Indian tribe located there were the only tribe in North or South America unconquered by European colonisers – they reportedly ate very little solid food, but frequently drank a fermented Maqui beverage which they attributed to their relatively long lives, and superior strength.
With an ORAC antioxidant score that’s 3 times HIGHER than even Acai berry, it has the added punch of antioxidants like anthocyanins (like blueberries), polyphenols, Vitamins A & C, iron, potassium and Omega-6.
Vitamin C content is 58mg per 100g
ORAC antioxidant score is 612,000 per 100g
Some common questions...
1. How do you describe the texture/taste/aroma??
A very fine-grain powder with a faintly ‘berry’ aroma and pleasantly plain, ‘citrus-kissed’ taste – and much like Acai powder!
2.Are the superfruit powders 100% pure?
YES! there are NO fillers, free-running agents, or sweeteners (eg. maltodextrin)
3.What’s the difference between freeze-dried and spray-dried powders?
Freeze-drying is a snap cold process, ensuring maximum nutrient and antioxidant preservation, and preserving the deep natural pigment colours. Spray drying can subject the product to potentially nutrient-robbing heat during processing, often changing the colour, texture or flavour, so sweeteners are then sometimes added in.
