The evergreen acerola shrub comes from central america and brazil and can reach a height of up to 3 meters. The shrubs are grown in small plantations and the fruits are harvested 3-4 times a year.
The fruits are 1-3 CM in size, yellow-orange to red, have a very thin skin and are juicy sweet-sour to very sour. They look similar to cherries, although they are not related. With around 1700 mg to max. 3000 mg vitamin c per 100 g fruit flesh, they have AT least 30 times as much vitamin c as the lemon.
In contrast to man-made vitamin c, the special feature of the vitamin c gained from the acerola fruit lies in the combination with the other ingredients of the fruit. In addition to vitamin c, the acerola also contains provitamin a, vitamin b 1, vitamin b 2, niacin, iron, phosphorous and calcium.
Based on our knowledge today, this unique natural composition reinforces the antioxidative cell protection effect of the vitamin C. IT is estimated that this natural vitamin c has twice the effect of the synthetically produced ascorbic acid. Acerola is suitable for people who are allergic to citrus fruits.
In addition to functional extracts and concentrates, tropextrakt also offers a full range of products from the acerola fruit. The following are available: puree, concentrate, extracts with different levels of vitamin c (liquid and powder) , aromas, and dried fruit flakes.
