MAQUI (aristotelia chilensis): Haven’t yet heard of it?? You will – the ÔPatagonian SuperfruitÕ with a super deep purple colour and mild berry taste is native to Chile and regularly consumed by the Mapuche Indians. Pronounced Ômah-KEYÕ, Our Maqui is raw, wild-harvested and freeze-dried (not spray-dried) for maximum nutrient preservation and has NO fillers or sweeteners like maltodextrin.
Add to smoothies, lemonade, yoghurt, cereal or porridge, fruit juice, salad dressings, iceblocks, your water bottle – anything!
With an ORAC antioxidant score thatÕs 3 times HIGHER than even Acai berry, it has the added punch of antioxidants like anthocyanins (like blueberries), polyphenols, Vitamins A & C, iron, potassium and Omega-6.

1. How do you describe the texture/taste/aroma??
A very fine-grain powder with a faintly ÔberryÕ aroma and pleasantly plain, Ôcitrus-kissedÕ taste Ð and much like Acai powder!
2.Are the superfruit powders 100% pure?
YES! there are NO fillers, free-running agents, or sweeteners (eg. maltodextrin)
3.WhatÕs the difference between freeze-dried and spray-dried powders?
Freeze-drying is a snap cold process, ensuring maximum nutrient and antioxidant preservation, and preserving the deep natural pigment colours. Spray drying can subject the product to potentially nutrient-robbing heat during processing, often changing the colour, texture or flavour, so sweeteners are then sometimes added in.
