The new super food that everyone raves about is actually a berry from the acai palm in the Amazon. This is the way it should be consumed. It has the consistency of melting sorbet and is eaten with a spoon. It is super high in antioxidants and it became popular in Rio de Janeiro in the early 90's with the surfing and jiu jitsu crowd. Now you can buy acai at Costco, but it is mixed with other juices. Not the same thing...at all. IF you want to find acai in its purest form, go to the store Brasil with S just off of Macleod Trail and 57th avenue in Calgary.
