Camu camu is a low-growing shrub found throughout the river corridors of the Amazon rainforest of Peru and Brazil. The camu berry is one of the world's most abundant sources of vitamin C. The superfruit can provide as much as 60 times more C per serving than an orange! The superfruit also contains a broad range of other important nutrients including antioxidants, amino acids, beta-carotene and potassium. The small red fruits, which look like tiny apples, are sustainably hand-harvested by family farmers that expertly navigate their shallow canoes in the swampy habitat in which camu shrubs thrive. To make Navitas Naturals Camu Powder, the seeds are removed from the berries and then they are milled at low temperatures into a fine soluble powder. Many people in Peru enjoy camu-flavored ice cream, sweets and beverages. Navitas Naturals Camu Powder is a red-orange powder with a tart berry flavor. Camu purists enjoy a simple “camu punch” by stirring a spoonful of the easily dissolvable powder into a glass of water and adding a touch of natural sweetener. Camu powder also provides a tasty superfruit boost to juices, smoothies and yogurt.
