Amazon Therapeutic Laboratories Camu Camu Mega C Juice 3 oz Powder - 125 Servings
Amazon Therapeutic Laboratories Camu Camu Mega C - Wild harvested from small lakes in the center of the Amazon jungle. The grape-sized red and purple berries are juiced directly after harvest and then freeze dried onto a tapioca root starch base-an ideal semi-sweet carrier for blending into juices and for use as a supplement in fresh fruit smoothies and candies. The pink powders add a fruity and semi-sweet acid flavor to most types of food and drink. Until recently, Japan bought most of the entire world harvest making Camu-Camu Mega-C a rare commodity even in the Amazon jungle.

Today, tribes are beginning to care-take wild plantations and increase production by maintaining local trees. Planting orchards with grafted trees has become more widespread. This wild jungle berry contains the highest recorded source of vitamin C on the planet! About 20x more vitamin C than oranges or lemons. Much higher than acerola fruit. The fruit also contains natural rutin and bioflavonoids, which increase the effect of vitamin C and provide prime bioavailability. Compared with an orange, Camu-Camu Mega-C contains ten times more trace elements, such as iron, two times more phosphorus, proteins, beta carotene, calcium, vitamin B1, B2 and B3 as well as a comprehensive complex of minerals and amino acids.

Tasty whole powers are perfect for smoothies and juices. This species occurs abundantly in wild swamps along rivers and lakes in Peru, and in Amazonian Brazil and Venezuela, often with the base of the trunk under water. During the rainy season, the lower branches are also submerged for long periods.*

  • More About Camu-Camu Mega C
Abstract: The camu-camu, like many other Amazonian fruits, shows an excellent potential for use due to its high vitamin C content, and the use of these natural resources could result in greater development of the Amazonian region. Few studies have been conducted with this fruit, and such studies are necessary in order to develop the required technology to allow for its utilization, thus avoiding or at least decreasing wastage of such a rich raw material.

The principle objective of this study was to develop a process for the microencapsulation of camu-camu juice, optimizing the operational conditions. The processing conditions consisted of blanching at a temperature of 95 - 2;°C for 2 min, followed by cooling in an ice bath and juice extraction using a brush type depulper. The juice was dried with gum arabic or malt dextrin in a mini-spray dryer using an air entry temperature of between 100-160°C and wall material concentration varying between 5-35%, in accordance with a factorial experimental design.

Both the air entry temperature and the amount of wall material, plus the interaction between the two, gave significant positive effects at the level of 5% probability on the yield of juice powder. The optimum conditions for juice yield and vitamin C retention were established as 15% wall material and an air entry temperature of 150°C.*

Ingredients: Cold pressed Camu Camu juice (Myrciaria dubia) spray dried on a tapioca base. Servings: Approximately 125 - 250
