HOW DID ARNAUD SION DISCOVER ACAI?

In 2017, Arnaud Sion, the passionate creator of Comptoir de Toamasina and nature lover, undertook an epic journey from Belo Horizonte to the confines of the Amazon forest, in Para. His goal ? Discover the secrets of açaí, this mysterious superfruit whose purple berries contain vital energy.

At the wheel of his pick-up, Arnaud crossed kilometers of winding roads, leaving behind the lights of the city to get lost in the Cerrado. It is during this trip that he will discover the tonka bean but also the vanilla of the Cerrado. .

In the heart of this wild region, he had heard of açaí plantations, but he did not yet suspect the extraordinary adventure that awaited him.

As part of reforestation, he discovered an Acai plantation in the middle of the Amazon. Here, irrigation is done by drip and above all the workers who work benefit from the school for the children for example. 

This project has profound human and environmental value. 

Today, when you taste our RWD açaí powder, remember Arnaud, his quest and this plantation in the heart of the Amazon. Each spoon is imbued with this history, this passion, and the love for nature that drives us.

WHAT DOES ACAI TASTE LIKE?

Acai, this small fruit straight from the Amazon, is a real culinary discovery. Its unique flavor is difficult to describe, but it is a cross between  red fruits  and  cocoa . We find red fruit notes with a touch of cocoa and cinnamon for the sweet side

WHAT IS ACAI?

The açaí fruit, from the eponymous palm tree, is a treasure of Amazonian biodiversity, present not only in Brazil but also in other countries such as Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela. This palm thrives in humid and riverine areas, requiring approximately 120 liters of water per day for each mature tree in order to fruit. These ideal conditions are mainly found in northern Brazil, where humidity and precipitation are generous.  

The term “açaí” is derived from the Tupi Guarani “yasai”, meaning “crying fruit”, in reference to the juice flowing from the fruit. The most common type of açaí in Brazil is small, dark purple in color, with a tiny stone surrounded by a thin layer of pulp. Its scientific name is Euterpe oleracea Mart , and it belongs to the Arecaceae family. The state of Pará is the main producer of this variety of açaí, controlling almost 90% of the national market. However, açaí is an important cultural element throughout the Amazon region. 

Açaí varieties : In Brazil, EMBRAPA has cataloged six varieties of açaí, distinguished by their structure, color, size and chemical composition. Here are the types:

  • Açaí Purple or Black  : This is the most popular variety, characterized previously.
  • Açaí Sangue de Boi  : Red in color, it is less consumed due to its paste consistency and distinct taste from purple açaí.
  • Açaí Açu  : Native to the Peruvian Amazon, it produces up to 70% more pulp per fruit, but its popularity is less due to the extra care required for its harvest and storage.
  • White Açaí  : Popular in the state of Pará, it is rarer and therefore more expensive, and its seed is actually greenish.
  • Açaí Espada  : Recognizable by its branched clusters, this variety is common on Combu Island, opposite Belém.
  • Açaí Chumbinho  : Its fruits, weighing less than 1 g even when ripe, vary from purple to white. Due to its small size, pulp production is not commercially viable.

Production Process : Artisanal production of açaí begins with pickers, or peconheiros, who climb palm trees of up to 25 meters using peconha, a special rope. The fruits are then immersed in water for 24 hours before being sifted to extract the pulp. This pulp is often consumed pure, but it is also used in various recipes such as jams, sorbets, cakes or alcoholic drinks. The seeds can be made into açaí coffee or used as raw material for local crafts.

In industrial production, pulp extraction involves several steps, including cleaning, disinfection and separation of the fruits, thereby eliminating the protozoan that causes Chagas disease. The fruits then pass through a pulp machine which efficiently separates the pulp from the seeds. The pulp is then categorized, frozen and stored at very low temperature.

Açaí pulp will keep for one year from its production date if kept frozen at subzero temperatures and properly packaged. If it is refrigerated and not consumed within two to three days, it oxidizes, or “azedar” as they say in the North.

Pulp Classification : Açaí pulp is classified according to the quantity of water added during its extraction:

  • Fine or Popular Açaí  : With more water added, it contains 8 to 11% dry matter and has a slightly dense consistency.
  • Medium or Regular Açaí  : Contains 11 to 14% dry matter and has a dense consistency.
  • Açaí Coarse or Special  : With less water added, it contains more than 14% dry matter and has a very dense consistency.

Curiosity : In Pará, there are still unique culinary traditions and practices around açaí, testifying to the cultural and gastronomic richness of the region.

HOW IS THE AÇAI SOLD BY THE TOAMASINA COUNTER GROWN?

Comptoir de Toamasina has found a company recognized in Brazil for being the most extensive açaí producer in Brazil, with an impressive area of ​​over 1,000 hectares dedicated to the cultivation of this superfruit. These lands are spread across farms located in the state of Pará, where plantations began around the 2010s.    

Initially, these areas were degraded pastures, but through innovation and technology they have been transformed to grow açaí, while respecting the natural environment.

Açaí, whose fruit is harvested from the Euterpe oleracea palm tree , is native to the wetlands and floodplains of the Amazon. These regions are characterized by periodic tidal flooding, creating ideal conditions for the growth of the açaí tree which requires a lot of water for its survival, flowering and fruiting. 

Our producer  has innovated by developing his plantations in arid areas, where flooded land has been dried out.

This is because açaís in areas that are constantly flooded do not produce fruit of satisfactory quality.

To overcome this problem, a modern drip irrigation system was installed, integrating fertilization and providing additional water during dry seasons.

Soil fertility and plant nutrition are monitored by regular laboratory analyses, thus ensuring the quality and organoleptic properties of the harvested fruits.

As part of its commitment to quality and innovation, it  has also undertaken a plant breeding program over the past decade, identifying plants with the best productive potential and fruit quality. The company experimented with different planting spacings and densities to optimize plant distribution and architecture. Two of the three farms are now grown organically, incorporating new management practices that reflect a modern approach to food production: healthier, contaminant-free foods that contribute to the regeneration and preservation of the environment, while promoting social development.

Our partner's operations have a significant impact on the local economy, generating income and jobs in a region where opportunities are scarce, thereby stimulating the region's economic and social growth. Comptoir de Toamasina, with its avant-garde approach, supplies not only Brazil but also the whole world with high-quality açaí-derived products, such as açaí pulp and powder.

You are wondering how to plant acai at home, here is Arnaud's answer to your question: 

Tips for successful açaí growing:

  1. Choice of plants:  Select plants of reliable origin, healthy and without parasites. The soil must be rich in nutrients and well drained to avoid accumulation of water harmful to the roots.

  2. Sun Exposure:  Açaí requires a lot of light for healthy growth. Make sure to plant in a sunny location.

  3. Strategic pruning:  Practice regular pruning to remove dry or diseased branches and stimulate productive branches, thus promoting a better harvest.

  4. Adequate irrigation:  Maintain constant humidity without waterlogging the soil to protect the roots.

  5. Balanced fertilization:  Perform periodic soil tests to adjust fertilization according to the nutritional needs of the plants.

  6. Pest and Disease Control:  Monitor plants regularly and use preventative methods to protect against pests and diseases.

HOW THE AÇAI FROM COMPTOIR DE TOAMASINA IS POWDERED

Food preservation is a mainstay of the food industry, and dehydration is a proven method for extending the durability of food while preserving its nutritional qualities. 

We have selected a company that stands out for its adoption of a cutting-edge technique: the Refractance Window Dry (RWD) method.

This avant-garde process uses a Mylar® sheet to diffuse the heat necessary for drying through moving water, heated between 95 and 98°C . The açaí, spread in a thin layer on this sheet, is effectively dried in 5 to 10 minutes at mild temperatures of 30 to 70°C . This approach maintains the nutritional and taste attributes of açaí, including vitamins, fats, antioxidants and pigments.    

The benefits are obvious: the açaí powder produced by RWD displays polyphenol and anthocyanin levels of 28,000 and 5,300 mg/kg , attesting to the ability of this method to maintain bioactive compounds. In addition, the homogeneous, non-porous structure of dried açaí limits oxidation and the generation of free radicals, unlike traditional methods which increase porosity and vulnerability to oxidation. 

Analyzes by scanning electron microscopy show that the product dried by RWD has a superior structure to that resulting from freeze-drying, drum drying or spray drying. The RWD method, by preventing cross-contamination and reducing energy consumption, represents a sustainable and efficient solution for the food sector.

Our partner is not limited to the production of premium açaí powder; the company also offers other dehydrated fruits, such as Passion Fruit powder, using the same RWD technology.
