Açaí, the hidden gem of Brazil! The famous Amazonian power-food is sure to take over the world!

The fruit grows on the front of palm trees, hanging down in bunches. The fruit contains 182.4 kcals per 100 grams and is rich in iron, calcium, vitamins B1, B2, B3 and C. SO is rich enough to be a meal.

In the south, commonly, carioca surfers have it frozen whereas in the northeast, traditionally, you find it fresh, salted and served with fish.

There are many great places around Rio to enjoy this fruit in all its forms but be sure to find genuine sellers as some people add a syrup to the mixture.
