At tera’swhey® we pride ourselves on developing healthy and flavorful whey protein powder formulations. With that in mind, it is no surprise that our Organic Bourbon Vanilla and Organic Fair Trade Dark Chocolate formulas are among our most popular flavors. However, we also strive to find unique flavors that set us apart from other whey protein powders on the market.
The rBGH Free Acai Whey Protein Powder is one such flavor that differentiates tera’swhey® from the rest. The acai berry has received a lot of media attention for its health benefits in recent years, but we have found that that some of our consumers still have reservations about trying this unique flavor.
Unlike traditional berries (like a strawberry or raspberry) that are grown on a bush, the acai berry grows in a palm tree in the Amazonian forests of South America. The berries develop in groups of up to a dozen and are found on the base of the palm leaves. At harvest time, they are dark in color and about the size of a grape.
When asked to describe the flavor of the acai berry, people provide many different answers. Some note that there is a certain bitterness to the fruit, similar to black licorice. While others say it has a delicate flavor that tastes like a cross between a blackberry and raspberry with a dark chocolate aftertaste. Because of its mildness, many tera’swhey® customers utilize the acai berry flavor as a base for smoothies and other healthful drinks.
The acai berry is touted for its health benefits because it is high in both anthocyanins and flavonoids, which are powerful antioxidants that support the body’s immunity system. Research also suggests that these antioxidants aid the body’s cell protection system and lessen the effects of aging and disease.
So that’s the lowdown on this mysterious super fruit. In a nutshell, tera’swhey® rBGH Free Aacai Whey Protein Powder is a unique flavor that is good for the body! But don’t take our word for it…let your taste buds decide!
