These are seeds that grow in a palm tree (Euterpe Olaracea) in Peru’s Amazons and other jungle areas of South America.
ACAI or ASAI’s pulp (berry) surrounding these seeds has long been processed and consumed by Amazonian native people since the Pre-Columbian era, 13th century, becoming an important food for the Amazonian’s diet and it is known for its health benefits.
