It is popular for being among the superfoods with the highest vitamin C concentration on the planet. Tribes of the Amazon in Peru and Brazil are known for having used Camu camu to treat infections, relieve pain, and promote longevity. Even now locals of Iquitos in Peru eat the fruit dabbed in salt and make poultices to alleviate soreness.

Camu camu is known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It contains high amounts of vitamin C, magnesium, sodium, calcium, zinc, potassium, and copper, and amino acids such as serine, leucine, valine, and carotenoids. This fruit powder can be easily added to smoothies, oats, muesli, yogurts, salad dressings, and more!
For adventurous users
If you like lemons and limes or cherries you are going to love how Camu camu powder tastes and smells. Its tart and sour flavor are perfect for adding an exotic layer of complexity to juices, smoothies, jams, yogurt, and ice cream. This powder is also great for making icings and toppings. Mix it with olive oil, parsley, and garlic to make a savory and tart salad dressing. Add it to cakes, pies, and snack bars, or make candies. Or stir it into water, seltzer, or tea. Camu camu is good in smoothie bowls, parfaits, and wellness shots. A good tip is to always add this fruit powder to food after cooking to prevent the loss of nutrients from the heat.
A boost in health
When the Camu camu berry is dried and made into a powder it creates a basis for a number of nutritional supplements. Its high amount of Vitamin C boosts the immune system and protects cells from oxidative damage. Some people use it to increase energy and maintain healthy gums, skin, and eyes. There are also some powerful antioxidants found in Camu camu. Even though the body has a natural defense mechanism to combat free radicals, antioxidants found in this fruit powder can help decrease their numbers even further. It also supports collagen formation and good functioning of blood vessels, bones, and skin.
For mass production
One of the many reasons Camu camu powder is so convenient is because it can be stored for long periods, without it going bad. Most manufacturers use the powder instead of raw fruit to create supplements, pills, purees, and juices, as sometimes the fruit itself can have a strong tart flavor. It is very unlikely to find this rare fruit in its original form and that’s why the powdered form is most popular to flavor yogurt, candies, and even to add in skin and hair products.
