Nutrition Series: Berry Aҫai
In the rainforests of South America, the purple fruit known as the Acai Berry grows from palm trees. The branches can hold hundreds of the small round fruit. Acai Berry has been around for thousands of years, but was introduced to most of the world in the 90’s. It has been a recently popular ingredient in the health industry due to its benefits and is now a Fuel For Fire flavor!
