The King of Vitamin C
Camu camu is produced from a low-growing shrub native to the Amazon rainforests in Brazil and Peru. Locals often use this super-fruit in everything from ice cream to juices. Its health benefits were first discovered in 1957 by Peruvian food scientists, who found that camu camu can contain up to 60 times more vitamin C than an orange!
Camu camu contains a synergistic blend of natural health-promoting properties. Its amino acid profile of serine, leucine and valine helps support muscle tone. Its abundant storehouse of antioxidant vitamin C helps block and scavenge free radicals and supports a healthy immune system.
Zint Camu Camu Powder is harvested along the Amazonian lowlands by local tradespeople who typically reach the camu tree by canoe. Once reaped, the fruit is slow-dried and milled gently at low temperatures to preserve camu camu’s amazingly vital nutrients in their purest form. Our camu powder has a deep, tart flavor that makes it perfect for complementing your favorite recipes for sprinkling it on desserts and other treats.
