Grown atop Amazon River palm trees, the açaí berry is considered nature’s number one superfood based on its immense amount of antioxidants, healthy essential omegas, fibers, protein, calcium, vitamins A, E, and B6.

About Açai Roots

Açai Roots™ ( is a San Diego-based company that supplies Amazon-grown açaí products. The company was founded in 2005 by three “cariocas” (people born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) who wanted to bring the authentic and healthy Rio-style açaí to the United States. Growing up in Rio de Janeiro during the açaí boom (late 80’s and early 90’s) and not being an açaí addict was virtually impossible for these three natives. Açai Roots’ products are made from natural wild crafted açaí berries harvested from the Belem region in the State of Para, where Brazil produces its “cream of the crop” açaí. The company manufactures and distributes a full line of pure açaí berry products formulated to exact standards by native Brazilians. Açaí Roots is dedicated to supporting the sustainable harvesting of açaí berries in the Brazilian Amazon to help protect the rainforest and support local communities in Brazil.
