Did you Know?
>Pomegranate means 'seeded apple' in Latin, symbolized 'prosperity & ambition' to ancient Egyptians, and has beautiful delicate flowers before the fruit (which is actually a berry!) forms. Grown in regions as diverse as India, Africa, California, China, and the Mediterranean & Middle East, pomegranate seed oil also has a highly unusual antioxidant composition.
>CamuCamu grows naturally along the multitude of swampy tributaries of the Amazon riverways (of Colombia, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, & Bolivia) and consequently is hand-harvested by canoe!! It has close botanical relatives that may be more familiar to Australians - the Jaboticaba and Guavaberry.
FAQ's1. Describe the texture/taste/aroma??
A very fine-grain powder with a faintly orange-peel aroma and pleasant, cherry-crossed-with-pink-grapefruit taste.
2. What percentage/ratio are the superfruit powders mixed at? Blend is 30% Maqui berry, 30% Pomegranate, 30% Goji, 10% CamuCamu
3. Are the superfruit powders 100% pure?
YES! there are NO fillers, free-running agents, or sweeteners (eg. maltodextrin)
4. What's the difference between freeze-dried and spray-dried powders?
Freeze-drying is a snap cold process, ensuring maximum nutrient and antioxidant preservation, and preserving the deep natural pigment colours of antioxidant anthocyanins. Spray-drying can subject the product to potentially nutrient-robbing heat during processing and often changes the colour, texture or flavour, so sweeteners are then sometimes added in.
5. Love the packaging - why so extraordinarily colourful?
Because we think this first launch in the SUPERBLAST series of products is SO unique, SO dynamic, and the nutrition within SO vibrant, we just had to package it to match!
Ingredients: Mixed Maqui, Pomegranate, Goji & CamuCamu superfruit powders.
WOW! this just in....the results from one of North America's specialist ORAC testing labs.
(FYI: ORAC is the scale used to measure the total antioxidant level of a food)
SUPERBLAST: antioxidant tests at 6,000 ORAC units per GRAM, or twice your minimum daily requirement,
so a teaspoon has 15,000 ORAC units - shazam!
Nutritional scientists are just beginning to understand what ancient cultures always knew - the constellation of nutrients and free-radical fighters in superfoods are not just super-delicious, but super-nutritious too!Pollution is an unavoidable fact of life, and NO ONE is immune to it! Experts recommend at least 3000 ORAC per day to guard against oxidantive damage (or more if stressed & hey, who isnt stressed these days??)
Wholefood nutrient sources are considered preferable to popping a pill, so for your convenience, we've combined FOUR of the strongest known antioxidant superfruit powders all together to make it easy to boost your daily diet and 'blast' off the effects of this millenium's environmental influence.
Nutritional BenefitsMAQUI (aristotelia chilensis): Havent yet heard of it?? You will - this Patagonian Superfruit with a super deep purple colour and mild berry taste is native to Chile and regularly consumed by the Mapuche Indians. With an ORAC antioxidant score that's 3 times HIGHER than even Acai berry, it has the added punch of anthocyanins (like blueberries), polyphenols, antioxidant Vitamins A & C, iron, potassium and Omega-6. Our Maqui is raw, wild-harvested and freeze-dried (not spray-dried) for maximum nutrient preservation, and has NO fillers or sweeteners (eg. maltodextrin).
POMEGRANATE (punica granatum): Ever actually tried eating the juicy ruby red seeds of this Persian Superfruit? It's delicious, yet messy, inconvenient and stains everything! But it has been cultivated for 1000+ years and is included in everything these days from cosmeceuticals to candy for a good reason! Along with the ellagic acid (like strawberries), tannins, anthocyanins and polyphenols, it contains Vitamin C, iron and potassium - with lots of research ongoing, the discovery of this superfruit's benefits has surely only just begun! Sourced from India and freeze-dried and RAW for maximum nutritional punch.
GOJI (lycium barbarum): This Tibetan Superfruit is sometimes referred to as 'red diamonds' with a strong history in traditional Asian culture, and ours is vine-ripened, freeze-dried and RAW. Goji is a famous macronutrient powerhouse of carotenoids, vegetarian protein and 20 trace minerals, but best known for the combination of antioxidant Vitamins A, C, & E within.
CamuCamu (myrciaria dubia): Another rarity, this remarkable raw red berry powder from Peru boasts the highest naturally occurring mega-vitamin C content of just about any food on the planet! (thats 30 to 60 times more Vitamin C than an orange) and also contains antioxidant rutin, ellagic acid, anthocyanins, beta-carotene AND the mineral potassium, with the amino acids valine, leucine, & serine for good measure.
Suggested UsesAdd to yoghurt, smoothies, cereal or porridge, fruit juice, salad dressings, puddings, cocktails, your water bottle - anything! (Retain silica sachet to help prevent any clumping, seal & store below 30C away from sunlight)

FEEDBACK: "My whole household consisting of 4 adults ages ranging from 20-46 years have been incorporating SUPERBLAST in our morning juices. We have all noticed a remarkable difference in our energy levels, skin condition, longer bursts of energy lasting all day, awareness, just to name a few, we have also been able to gauge this by running out of this product for the last week and have noticed the lack of energy especially. Thanku". H.W., VIC
