Camu camu is produced from a low-growing shrub native to the Amazon rainforests, Brazil and Peru. Locals often utilize this super-fruit to flavor everything from ice cream to juices. Camu camu’s health benefits were first discovered in 1957 by Peruvian food scientists. They found that camu camu has 60 times more more vitamin C than an orange: one teaspoon contains over 600 mg!
Zint Camu Camu Powder has a tart flavor and is harvested along the Amazonian lowlands by local tradespeople, who typically reach the camu tree by traveling down rivers in canoes. Once reaped, the fruit is then slow-dried and milled gently at low temperatures to preserve camu camu’s amazingly vital nutrients in their purest form.
Add it to your favorite foods, drinks and desserts for a tart and delicious vitamin C boost.
