This South American fruit, similar to our blueberries, has been used by Andean Indians for thousands of years as an elixir of longevity. And for good reason. Its purple anthocyanin dyes are a source of beneficial antioxidants.

Thanks to the plant's dyes, maqui can be used to work magic in the kitchen. They'll turn dishes from purple to red depending on what you mix them with. The powder has a pleasantly sweet "blueberry" taste and aroma. Use it in your dishes. In addition to the purple colour, it adds an irresistible aroma and lots of nutrients to desserts.

 

Maqui berry is especially a rich source of antioxidants. It contains the plant dyes anthocyanins and beneficial flavonoids, which, in synergy with other vitamins and minerals, have many beneficial effects. Consumption of this fruit contributes to the maintenance of normal immune system function.

Our product contains 100% pure powder from finely ground wild fruits in organic raw quality. The fruits have been freeze-dried to retain their unique properties and superior nutritional values. The powder consistency is even more concentrated in nutrient content compared to the berries.

Maqui powder has a sweet fruity flavor and aroma reminiscent of ripe blueberries.

The maqui berry story

Maqui berries (Aristotelia chilensis) are small, purple-black berries, similar to our blueberries, growing on tropical palm trees in the temperate rainforests of the Patagonia region of Chile and Argentina. Maqui has been used for thousands of years by the local Indians as a source of robust health and endurance. It is said that the indigenous peoples of the region used these "blueberries" to fend off all conquistadors, including the Incas. Only today are maqui berries known in the West as an excellent source of antioxidants.

The berries are traditionally used in Chilean natural medicine and contain a high amount of natural antioxidants in terms of ORAC (free radical absorbing capacity). They have the highest concentration of natural blue-violet anthocyanin dyes of any known super fruit or berry including acai, amalaki, pomegranate or mangosteen.

Maqui is similar in its effects to our wild blueberries. However, due to the sunny environment in which it grows, it has many times higher levels of active ingredients.


How to use the maqui berry in the kitchen

Maqui can be added freely to breakfast smoothies, fruit juices, energy bars, cereals and other foods.

You can also work magic with maqui in the kitchen. Blue-violet dyes are great because they change their coloration according to the pH of the environment in which you dissolve them. You can use maqui powder as a healthy natural coloring for your desserts. Cakes, ice creams, porridges and the creams turn a beautiful purple.

Helena Plívová 6. September 2015

Je prosím vhodný tento produkt i pro děti - pro posílení organismu na podzim? Dceři je 9 let a hledám alternativní cesty, jak podpořit její obranyschopnost na podzim. Nemá závažné choroby, ale často bývala nemocná na podzim. Díky za zprávu, Helena

Michaela Ptáčková odpověděl:

Krásný den, Heleno, maqui příznivě působí imunitní systém, je to ale tropické ovoce s ochlazujícím účinkem na tělo, proto bych v době podzimu a zimy volila raději čaj Spring Dragon, medicínské houby (reishi, chaga) . Pro zimní období je skvělá i kustovnice čínská.
