Trader Joe's new Organic Acerola Puree spotlights "the cherry-like fruit of an evergreen shrub that grows mostly in the warmer parts of South America." Although similar to a cherry in shape and color, the acerola is a different fruit entirely that's packed with Vitamin C.
Trader Joe's worked with the supplier of its Acerola Puree Packets to introduce this new puree, which is strained and free from seeds—and any other added ingredients. As such, the ready-to-use tangy-tasting puree is ideal for making a variety of refreshing summer smoothies and juices, especially when it comes to adding a functional boost of vitamins. In fact, a single 3.5-ounce packet of Organic Acerola Puree from Trader Joe's boasts 1,180% of the daily recommended value of Vitamin C.
At a time when health-conscious consumers are increasing their food and supplement intake of immune-boosting ingredients, this puree promises to be especially popular.
