NXTDRIED Superfoods SAC of Peru have launched a Camu Camu powder which contains an extraordinary 25% vitamin C, a world record high level of vitamin C for a 100% natural product.
Conventionally dried Camu Camu (Myrciaria dubia) typically only contains up to 6% vitamin C, even with the seeds removed.
NXTDRIED Camu Camu has simply been carefully selected and cleaned then we have used NXTDRIED’s proprietary preparation, conditioning and dehydration processes to fully preserve all the natural goodness, especially the vitamin C.
The final powder has less than 3% moisture with absolutely nothing added! A fresh, pinky powder full of sharp Camu Camu flavour.
Fresh Camu Camu is sourced from our communities of farmers in northern Peru and selected for optimum ripeness and natural vitamin C content.
NXTDRIED has successfully applied patented low temperature vacuum dehydration processes that are now becoming the de facto standard internationally for drying cannabis as they are proven to retain virtually ALL natural flavours, colours, vitamins and bio-actives.
“Our 25% vitamin C Camu Camu demonstrates that we can achieve extraordinary things with natural products, at a time when healthy and nutritious ingredients have never been so important”, stated Dafydd Davies, Director EMEA at NXTDRIED, and he added ”and we are committed to investing further in nutritional R&D to meet the increasing healthy eating and snacking demands of the food industry and consumers”.
NXTDRIED Camu Camu can easily be added to a wide variety of foods and beverages, providing essential vitamin C goodness, natural acidity and colour. In addition, it is used as a natural preservative in processed foods and baked goods to extend shelf life and supports raw food and clean label solutions. Available as conventional or organic.
