Acai Berry: The Healthiest Choice Trending Now
Acai is one of the trendiest foods plus a superfood. It is not just aesthetically appealing like you might have noticed when you saw I all over Instagram! But it has uncountable benefits too. The beautiful and bright purple bowls have so many nutrients that a bowl a day will keep most of your health problems away. It is endorsed by many well-known celebrities and it is also known as the “miracle fruit”. You can also find millions of acai recipes out there to customise it as you like. Tuckshop loves to have a soulful frozen bowl of acai, trust us when we say that you can’t differentiate between it and ice cream!
But what is acai really? Let us walk you through it. This amazing little, round dark purple berry grows on acai palm trees and is not so sweet but a little earthy too. A fun fact here is that even though it is classified as a berry, it is not actually a berry but a drupe. It’s a mix between a chocolate and a berry. As it has short shelf life, it is not easily available and you will mostly find frozen fruit puree such as Tuckshop’s premium acai sorbet which is available in different sizes.
Acai has amazing nutrients and is extremely low in calories. The low sugar content and glycemic index does not let your blood sugar spike and aids in healthy digestion. There are wholesome saturated fats and a combination of omega 3-6-9 fatty acids which provides great energy and benefits your skin, hair, eyes and metabolism! It will also help you feel fuller for longer so that you don’t binge eat on other snacks.
The antioxidants that acai is rich in helps to neutralize free radicals that enter the body when someone has a poor diet. By doing that, acai helps in reversing the damage and saving you from aging, body pains, skin diseases, diabetes and issues of the heart. It also improves brain function and boosts cognitive skills.
