ACEROLA – THE SUPERFRUIT
Nature’s Best Source of Real Vitamin C
Also known by other names such as the Barbados Cherry, Atillean Cherry or Sour
Cherry, acerola grows on a small tree and turns a shade of red when ripens. The
fruit, which is an excellent antioxidant, boost the immune system once it is
one of nature’s largest sources of natural vitamin C. it also contains
carotenoids, anthocyanins, phenolic acids, vitamins and minerals.
• Vitamin C content:
Vitamin C content in the fresh acerola ranges from 1,000 to 4,500 mg per 100g
of fruit; that is, up to 90 times of the content found in oranges and 35 times
that of lemons.
Vitamin C content of freeze dried acerola is 9% (9,000mg per 100g of powder).
In other words, 0.5g of freeze dried acerola is enough to obtain a day’s
supply of natural vitamin C.
The vitamin C naturally present in acerola is absorved by the human body more
rapidly than synthetically produced vitamins.
• Anthocyanins and Polyphenols
Comparative analyses shows that acerola, despite having a lower anthocyanin
content than berries, has a much greater amount of total polyphenols.
Two anthocyanins (cyaniding-3-α-O-rhamnoside and perlagonidin-3-α-O-
rhamnoside), have reportedly been found in acerola, and five different
polyphenolic compounds have been identified: chlorogenic acid, (-)-
epigallocatechin gallate, (-), (-)-epicatechin, procyanidin B1 and rutin, the
latter two are more predominant.
Phenolic compounds significantly contribute to acerola’s high antioxidant
Acerola is an important source of carotenoids which strengthens its potentials
In the ripe fruit, four major carotenoids were identified (β-carotene, β-
cryptoxanthin-lutein, and violaxanthin) together with other minor carotenoids
(neoeoxanthin, antheraxanthin, neochrome, luteoxanthin, auroxanthin, β-
cryptoxanthin-5,6-epoxide, β-cryptoxanthin-5,8-epoxide, cis-β-carotene, and
cis-lutein). Β-carotene is noteworthy given its high content (accounting for
40% to 60% of the total carotenoids). Analysis performed freeze dried acerola
has shown β-carotene values of about 140mg per 100g of powder; in other words,
approximately 7g of freeze dried acerola provide 100% of the DRI.
• Other Vitamins and minerals
Freeze dried acerola is source of other vitamins, especially Vitamin B and
minerals such as iron, calcium and phosphorous.
The unusually high amount of natural Vitamin C indicates that freeze dried
acerola is a useful ingredient to fortify beverages and foods or in the
pharmaceutical industry nutritional supplement (capsules and tablets).
Process – Freeze Drying:
Freeze drying is the best method to dehydrate acerola.
Fresh fruits are carefully cleaned and washed before the pulp is extracted.
After the extraction, the pulp is then pasteurized and frozen. The next step is
dehydration by using the freeze drying process. Once the pulp is properly
frozen, it is submitted to very low pressure in vacuum chambers, being the
water eliminated by sublimation.
The parameters for freeze drying acerola were carefully defined in order to
ensure the maximum preservation of the bioactive components of the fruit.
We only source materials from inspected and approved suppliers and the entire
chain is controlled by monitoring process and quality control analyses in order
to guarantee total microbiological safety and preservation of the fruit’s
*GMP and HACCP are implanted.
Aluminum foil, which protects the freeze dried acerola against moisture and
light, preserving the nutrients and flavour.
