Maqui berries have incredibly beneficial properties for which they have been enjoyed for centuries by indigenous people living in the rainforest of Chile and adjacent regions of southern Argentina. They considered Maqui a sacred plant. To this day, Mapuche Indians still use leaves, stems, and berries as medicinal products in their traditional medicine. They believe berries give strength and endurance. Věří, že bobule dodávají sílu a vytrvalost.
Maqui Berry known as a "superfruit" due to its antioxidant content. It is the most powerful antioxidant in the world! The fruit is a small berry, about 5 millimetres long, and it is bright black or bluish. Our Maqui Berry powder is made from berries, hand-picked in the wilderness of a rainforest in Chile.
Maqui berries from Chile have long been known for their health benefits. They're full of vitamins and antioxidants like vitamin B and C, also minerals such as calcium, iron and zinc and valuable omega 3,6,9 fatty acids. The maqui have a sweet-sour taste and add a strong blue-violet colour to the dishes.
Why are vitamins preserved in our superfoods the same way as in fresh fruit?
Maqui Berry Powder has a juicy taste, sub-blueberry and a rich purple color. Excellent colour, taste and all vitamins are preserved thanks to the method of freeze-drying - lyophilization. The whole secret of lyophilization is in the process of fruit deep freezing and thus removal of water. The result is preserved dried fruit, in our case ground to powder form, with all nutrients preserved and longer shelf life
We always choose products in premium quality and from the 100% ripe fruit which contains maximum amount of nutrients and vitamins. Due to the lower weight of dried fruit, you can eat more compared to fresh one and thus you get more nutrients and energy.
