Summary

The amount of Vitamin C found in the Camu Camu fruit is attracting the attention of naturopaths and nutritionists alike. The combination of Vitamin C and the other nutrients in this super fruit is becoming known as a general health boosting essential. The powdered form can be easily added to smoothies or encapsulated. As the fruit naturally ripens and sweetens the Vitamin C content decreases. Because of this the fruit is harvested early resulting in a highly acidic flavor which can be easily sweetened to taste.
