Transform your morning smoothies with a dash of this brilliant purple organic Maqui Berry Powder.
Loaded with antioxidants, it is no wonder why our organic maqui berry powder is classified as a ‘superfood’. Don’t be fooled by this modern title though – maqui berries have been consumed by indigenous people in Chile since ancient times, with the leaves, stems and berries all used for medicinal purposes and the plant considered sacred. With the botanical name of Aristotelia Chilensis, the berries grow on an evergreen shrub, with only the highest quality berries picked. Once harvested, the Maqui berries are then preserved through a rapid freezing and drying process, before then ground into a fine powder.
Like blueberries, maqui berries contain high levels of antioxidants, but there is something about these berries that distinguish them from the rest. Delphinidins can be found within maqui berries – these are molecules that belong to the anthocyanin family, though have up to three times the antioxidant capacity than the rest of the anthocyanin family. Maqui berries actually contain 7 times the amount of antioxidants than acai berries contain, and 9 times the amount than goji berries!
Maqui berry powder is full of fruity flavour and super sweet. We love blending a teaspoon into our smoothies or mixing in with some yogurt to give them a beautiful deep purple colour. This powder is highly concentrated, and so you only need one teaspoon at a time.
