WHAT IS ACEROLA

Acerola , sometimes called the “Barbados cherry” or “West Indian cherry,” stands out as a tropical superfruit due to its exceptionally high concentration of vitamin C. Native to tropical regions of South America and the Caribbean , this shrub produces small red berries, similar to European cherries.

Acerola is found in the form of powder, tablet, juice and fresh cherry in Brazil. But the shelf life of acerola is less than 10 days, so you can't keep it. 

It is good to know that camu camu has more vitamin C than acerola.

The richness of acerola in vitamin C is remarkable, surpassing that of oranges by 10 to 40 times, making it a major asset for stimulating the immune system. In addition to vitamin C , acerola is also a source of minerals such as magnesium and potassium , as well as vitamin B5 , contributing to a plethora of health benefits.

The benefits of acerola are multiple: we can see on competing sites that it can fight bacterial infections, stimulates the immune system, reduces cholesterol levels and is associated with the prevention of certain types of cancer. But we refuse to discuss this and we do not have the right, in accordance with French law.

It can be said that traditionally it is used to treat conditions such as dysentery, anemia and scurvy. This is a historical point of view.

Consumption of acerola is recommended in moderation, generally in the form of food supplements, due to its high vitamin C content. It is recommended not to exceed 1 g/day of acerola pulp to avoid any excess.

Cultivated in dry forests, in fields, in gardens even in the wild, we find acerola in the city in particular in Belo Horizonte. But let's move on, acerola can reach up to 5 meters in height. The fruit, which deteriorates quickly after picking, is often refrigerated or frozen immediately to preserve its vitamin C content.

Le Comptoir de Toamasina , specialist in acerola, offers a powder of this superfruit preserving all its nutritional properties. By choosing acerola from Comptoir de Toamasina , you are opting for a quality product, supported by expertise and a passion for superfruits. Whether it's to strengthen your immune system, get a tangy powder for use in recipes and smoothies. 

It is an ideal nugget with a healthy diet. Be careful, this does not reduce fatigue unlike guarana. 

HOW IS CHERRY PRODUCED 

Cherry cultivation is a painstaking process that requires great attention and meticulous care.

We must remind you that the winter harvest is richer in vitamins, particularly C? Why, because there is no rain in winter and the acero tree is exposed to direct sunlight and its cherries are full of this natural vitamin C.

The cherry is red in summer with rain and it is green in summer. There are also different varieties that can produce red or green fruits. 

Here are the main stages of its production:

  1. Selection and Grafting : Growers begin by grafting the bud of an existing tree onto a compatible rootstock in order to obtain a cherry tree of the desired variety.

  2. Pollination : In spring, bees play a crucial role in ensuring the pollination of flowers, essential for the tree to bear fruit. This is in Europe. In Brazil, the acerola tree can have acerola fruit all year round. I even saw in the North of Brazil 10 harvests per year, it’s incredible. It is in tropical regions that this shrub likes to flourish.

  3. Growth and Maturation : After pollination, the fruits begin their development and maturation, a process that takes about six weeks.

  4. Harvest : Cherries are generally harvested by hand between late May and mid-August, depending on the varieties and growing region. In Brazil it can be harvested all year round. This operation requires patience and attention to detail, as the fruits are delicate and must be picked with care to avoid any damage.

  5. Sorting and Calibration : Once harvested, the cherries go through a sorting and calibration phase. Damaged, underripe or too small fruits are removed to ensure the quality of the final product.

  6. Packaging and Transport : The selected cherries are then carefully packaged and transported to the places of consumption, thus preserving their freshness and quality.

Cherry trees thrive when they benefit from cold winter weather as well as plenty of sunlight and adequate irrigation. However, they remain sensitive to climatic conditions, particularly heavy rains which can cause the fruits to burst prematurely before harvest.

When we talk about the cold, you have to know in winter, it's 25°C during the day less in the evening, but especially in the sun. 

By choosing cherries, you not only enjoy a delicious fruit, but also the fruit of a complex and meticulously orchestrated agricultural process, ensuring an optimal taste experience.

The manufacturing of various acerola products, such as powder, juice, and ice cream, goes through several distinct stages for each form. Here is an overview of the manufacturing process for these products:

Acerola Powder:

  1. Harvest : Acerola fruits are picked when ripe.
  2. Pressing : The fruits are pressed to extract their pulp.
  3. Dehydration : The pulp is then dehydrated, often by spray drying or freeze drying, to remove water while preserving nutrients.
  4. Grinding : The dried pulp is ground into a fine powder.
  5. Packaging : The powder is packaged in airtight containers to protect it from humidity and light.

Acerola juice:

  1. Pressing : Fresh acerola fruits are pressed to extract their juice.
  2. Filtration : The juice is filtered to remove solids and impurities.
  3. Pasteurization : Juice can be pasteurized to extend its shelf life.
  4. Packaging : The juice is then bottled or cartoned and sealed.

Acerola ice cream:

  1. Preparation of the base : A mixture of acerola juice, water, sugar and sometimes milk or cream is prepared.
  2. Freezing : The mixture is poured into an ice cream maker and frozen while being stirred to obtain a smooth texture.
  3. Packaging : The ice cream is then packaged in appropriate containers and stored in the freezer.

These processes allow you to enjoy the benefits of acerola in different forms, each adapted to various uses and times of consumption. Acerola powder is particularly popular for its ease of use and long shelf life, while the juice offers a refreshing experience and acerola ice cream is a delicious option for hot summer days.

THE DIFFERENT COLORS OF THE ACEROLA CHERRY

These shimmering shades not only delight the eyes, they also demonstrate the nutritional richness of the fruit, particularly its remarkable vitamin C content. The vibrant red color is often a sign of the presence of antioxidant phytonutrients like carotenoids and anthocyanins. . These compounds play a crucial role in maintaining health, providing protection against oxidative damage.

At Comptoir de Toamasina, we offer you a varied range of acerola varieties, including green varieties, renowned for their high vitamin C content. Some of these varieties, grown in Brazil, display an impressive concentration of up to 5000 mg of vitamin C per 100 g of acerola pulp, far surpassing other fruits such as orange or guava.

HOW TO CONSUME IT

Acerola offers appreciable versatility in terms of consumption, allowing various options depending on your preferences and the products available. Here are some suggestions:

  1. Food Supplements : In France, many people opt for acerola food supplements, available in the form of capsules, tablets or powder. It is recommended not to exceed a daily dose of 1g of fruit pulp or dry extracts.

  2. Juice : Acerola juice is another popular option. It is recommended to consume around 100 ml of juice per day, preferably at mealtimes, to benefit from its benefits.

  3. Powder : Easily integrate acerola powder into your diet by adding it to your smoothies, yogurts or cereals. It's a convenient way to get an extra dose of vitamin C.

  5. Cooking : Experiment by adding acerola powder to your culinary recipes to enrich your dishes with vitamin C. This can be a tasty and creative way to incorporate this beneficial ingredient into your daily diet.

It should be noted that the vitamin C present in acerola is mainly known for its anti-fatigue effect and its support for the immune system. It is always prudent to respect the recommended doses and to consult a healthcare professional in case of specific questions or particular conditions.

  1. Exceptional Concentration in Vitamin C : Acerola far surpasses oranges in terms of vitamin C content, which makes it a great ally for strengthening the immune system.

Its properties are used by laboratories in cosmetics. But we cannot go any further because of French law that we are asked to respect.
