Description

Camu camu berries are the fruit of the shrub Myrciaria dubia, which grows in the rainforests of Peru. The berries start out pale yellow and gradually darken to red and dark purple as they ripen. Their vitamin C content diminishes with ripeness. From 2 to 3 percent of the weight of camu camu berries is vitamin C, making it the second-richest source of vitamin C in any fruit or vegetable.

Indigenous Amazonians are said to use the berries to make a drink, sweetened with sugar, but the berry is too sour and acidic for any other culinary uses. Even though the berries themselves aren’t eaten, nutritional labels on the powdered supplements indicate that 1 teaspoon of the powder (around 5 grams) provides 682 mg of vitamin C, or 760 percent of the recommended daily intake.

Order Information

* For orders larger than 1 kg, if you selected Pure Inka Foods Labels, stickers will be sent inside the box to be applied upon arrival.* For orders larger than 100 g sample bags, use the specified selections (e.g. 907 g, 5 kg, 10 kg, etc) to avoid being charged the higher shipping rate.

Note on Wholesale Prices: Due to air shipping costs, you save more when you buy more. As an example for Canada, buying 1 kg, you pay $45 per kg in shipping, whereas buying 25 kg, you would pay $27 per kg. That’s an average savings of $18 per kg. Importing via ship cargo for a 300 kg export would cost you $3.70 per kg in shipping costs.

For all orders larger than 25kg, fill out this order form. For all orders larger than 300kg, fill out this order form.

 

Suggested Uses of Camu Camu

Camu camu is generally available in the form of a powder, which is made by drying and grinding the berries. To use it, you would most likely add it to a smoothie or shake, sprinkle it over foods like yogurt, oatmeal, cereal, or granola, or stir it into water, seltzer, or tea.

Additionally, juice products containing camu camu are available. These unsweetened juices aren’t pure camu camu juice but are diluted with water and other fruit juices. Typically, these are used by adding a small amount, around one ounce, to a smoothie or seltzer, as opposed to drinking it straight.

 

Harvest: 

We harvest camu camu berry from the Peruvian Amazon, where it normally grows on the banks of rivers, streams, lakes and lagoons, remaining covered by water for up to five months.

 

Benefits of Camu Camu Berry

1. High in vitamin C

Camu camu is rich in vitamin C.

Vitamin C plays many important roles in your body. For example, it helps strengthen your immune system and is needed for the formation of collagen, a protein that supports your skin, bones, and muscles.

 

2. Contains powerful antioxidants

Camu camu has impressive antioxidant capacities, as it’s loaded with vitamin C along with many other potent compounds like flavonoid antioxidants, including anthocyanins and ellagic acid.

 

3. Can help fight inflammation

Camu camu may be effective in reducing inflammation in your body. Chronic inflammation negatively impacts the health of your cells and has been linked to conditions like cancer, heart disease, and autoimmune disease.
Still, some studies suggest that camu camu may deliver the following benefits:

Reduced weight. Animal studies indicate that the berry may reduce body weight by increasing the number of burnt calories and positively altering gut bacteria.
Improved blood sugar levels. Research in 23 healthy people showed that camu camu may minimize the spike in blood sugar after eating a high-carb meal.
Antimicrobial properties. In a test-tube study, the peel and seeds of camu camu reduced bacterial growth of the potentially harmful bacteria Escherichia coli and Streptococcus mutans.
Healthier blood pressure. Test-tube and human studies have observed that the berry may help reduce blood pressure by promoting the dilation of blood vessels.

 

FAQ – Camu Camu Powder

What is Camu Camu Powder Good for?

Is Camu Camu the Same as Vitamin C?

Researchers concluded that camu camu exhibits more robust antioxidative and anti-inflammatory effects compared to a daily intake of 1500 mg of vitamin C, despite having equivalent vitamin C content.

Can I put Camu Camu On my Face?

Absolutely! Be vigilant for products featuring this key ingredient. Including it in your skincare routine can assist in postponing premature aging, maintaining skin suppleness, and preserving a youthful appearance. Camu camu, abundant in Vitamin C, contributes to achieving a smooth, radiant, and even-toned complexion.

 

How Much Camu Camu Can I Take Per Day?

Due to their strongly tart taste, camu camu berries are commonly consumed in powdered form as supplements. Recommended camu camu powder dosages can vary, but a typical suggestion is one to three teaspoons per day.

Does Camu Camu Dissolve in Water?

Camu camu does not normally dissolve in water, so it is best to give it a shake before drinking, if mixed with liquids. However, we do offer camu camu powder as a freeze-dried powder, that can be dissolved. Contact us to learn more.

 

Is Camu Camu Acidic or Alkaline?

Similar to tart cranberries, the camu camu berry’s natural acidity makes it less enjoyable for most people. As a result, it is typically processed into an ingredient for blended juices or freeze-dried into a powder. This powdered form can be taken as a supplement, added to smoothies, or incorporated into various foods.

Can I private label and brand my product?
Yes, as long as you are ordering at least 1000 kg. If interested, please fill out this form.
