Juçai’s Mission to Save the endangered Juçara Palm Tree
Juçaí is the only açaí made with 100% of the fruit of the juçara palm, a species native to the Atlantic Forest (southeast of Brazil). Because it is located in a milder climate than traditional açaís, its fruit is richer with 2-4 x the concentration of antioxidants vs regular açaí (or 20-40x blueberries)!
By generating a fair and recurring income for local communities in exchange for the fruit harvested (instead of clandestine illegal harvesting of its heart of palm), Juçaí creates an economic value to the Juçara berry – and to the living tree. For this and other commitments, Juçaí is a proud member of B Corps.
Juçaí is currently available in Canada in USDA-certified pure pulp of Juçara açaí – perfect for use as an ingredient on smoothies, drinks and gastronomy in general – as well as refreshing sorbet options and Canada-produced low-sugar snack bars.
