Camu Camu (Myrciaria dubia) is the name of a bush which grows in the Amazonian rain forest of Peru. Its fruit bears the same name and contains the most concentrated source of naturally occurring Vitamin C on the planet! The berries are about the size of a large grape and have a green or purplish red skin depending on its ripeness. The pulp is a crystal clear white and usually surrounds two seeds. The Camu Camu berries are wild crafted. Sara’s Choice Camu Camu grows in the Peruvian Amazon and is collected by local people by hand, via boat.
Sara’s Choice NEW Camu Camu uses the green (not yet fully mature) berries. These provide a higher vitamin C content. It is important to start the process immediately the berries arrive to achieve a high quality product. This starts with the removal of the seeds while protecting against oxidation, light and high temperatures. During the entire process the temperature is kept below 45 degrees celsius resulting in a minimum guaranteed Vitamin C content of 12% with an average of 14%.
