Acerola: A Super Antioxidant for Food Protection
When it comes to the preservation of Meats, and Fruit Desserts, Acerola Extract is an excellent all-natural solution replacing chemical-sounding ingredients, meeting the American consumers demand for clean label, natural and understandable ingredients. Worldwide, the USA is the first country using acerola extract in its NPL. Nevertheless, its uses for Food Protection and its properties as dough conditioner are not so well-known in America.
A Natural Superfood
Acerola (Malpighia glabra L.) is a Spanish name for “maple cherry”. A handful of fresh fruits/berries is traditionally eaten in Brazil to support energy and vitality. Particularly rich in vitamin C, there is 40 to 100 times more vitamin C in a glass of acerola juice than in a glass of orange juice. This ingredient is a natural superfood.
