"Not all Acerola Cherry Powder is
It is crucial when working with organics, particularly superfoods like
Acerola Cherry, to ensure the integrity of the product is not compromised in any
way. This is why we freeze dry our Raw Acerola Cherry and never spray dry.
If a company is not bolding declaring their Raw Organic Acerola Cherry Powder is
freeze dried, you can be certain it is spray dried. Spray dried superfood
powders are neither raw nor organic, according to true raw and organic
standards. Spray dried superfoods have added chemicals, including
maltodextrin and ethanol. Maltodextrin is a chemical linked to weight gain,
hives, itching or eczema-like rashes, asthma and allergic rhinitis. Ethanol is
most commonly used as a bio-fuel and when taken internally is linked to
diabetes, gout, kidney disease, liver disease, seizures/convulsions, allergic
reactions, infertility and complications in pregnancy and breast feeding. Also,
spray dried superfoods are literally cooked to death, heated to the boiling
point of the chemical solvent/carrier used to dry it. These products are not
bioactive and are essentially “dead”. Companies spray drying superfruits
like Acerola Cherry are more concerned with their bottom line than the health
and well being of their customers, with spray drying an average of 3 times less
expensive than freeze drying. High profile “raw food” and “body cleanse”
companies fail to mention this alarming fact about the products they tout. Keeping customers in the dark on this issue ties their hands from
being able to make educated choices in favor of their health. Companies
claiming they care about your health yet are selling spray dried products are,
in our opinion, charlatans.
"One pound of our Freeze Dried Acerola Cherry Powder is like having 7-10
pounds of frozen raw Acerola Cherry pulp, because the water has been removed.
Our Fair Trade Certified Acerola Cherry Powder does not require refrigeration."
Recommendations: Mix 1-3 Tablespoons (2-5 grams) into water, smoothies,
yogurt or cereals with a spoon or blender. It has a consistency similar to
granulated sugar and makes a great sugar substitute! For
