Raw Camu Camu

The Best Source of Vitamin C

Camu Camu is the most potent natural source of vitamin C.  Because it's totally natural, it contains all the flavonoids and co-factors necessary for maximum absorption and utilization.

Why our is different?  There are importers, brokers and supplement companies who will claim to have Camu Camu powder with a vitamin C content ranging from 25% all the way up to 50%. Unfortunately, what these companies often fail to mention is that only a portion of the vitamin C is the pure and natural form, the kind that comes directly from the berry. The rest comes from synthetic vitamin C added after processing, since synthetic vitamin C is cheap. This also allows them to add more inexpensive maltodextrin as filler. While this may be good for their bottom line, it’s anything but good for your health.

Our Camu Camu powder is exclusively uncut, all-natural dehydrated Camu Camu berry pulp.

Hand Harvesting

The camu camu fruit does not require any pesticides or fertilizers and grows in simple harmony with its environment. Wild-harvested in a remote region of the pristine Amazon jungle, the utmost care is taken to ensure its purity and efficacy. In the past, this product was not certified organic, simply due to the cost of certification in this remote region, but the value of the organic standard assurance to our harvesters finally made financial sense. This pristine product — same as it ever was — is now fully Organic certified, via CCOF and USDA NOP.

To produce our pure Camu Camu powder, the fresh berries are carefully harvested from a pristine Amazon river basin by indigenous people using canoes to access the bushes, which grow in the fertile floodbanks of the river.

Hand harvested Camu Camu berries are then quickly transported from the river basin to an organic processing facility, where they are washed, and pulped.

Whole Fruit Powder

In addition to the berry's Vitamin C rich pulp, we deliberately include the berry's skin, its source of valuable flavonoids. The Camu Camu berry pulp is dried into a powder at low temperatures (just around 118-120 F, which is on the edge of the RAW standard of 118 F). 

The powder is then sifted so that only the smallest, most bio-available particles pass through. The finished product is a 100% pure dehydrated berry powder with 18 - 20% naturally-occurring vitamin C content — just one serving provides over 745% RDA for Vitamin C! 

Our camu camu has a deeper, more red color than other "yellow" camu products, suggesting that our use of the berry's skin and fairly low-heat process help preserve more of the valuable red/purple antioxidants (anthocyanins).
