About Camu Camu
Camu-Camu is the common name for Myrciaria Dubia – a small Amazonian fruit that is known as the highest vitamin C content of any plant in the world, containing 12-13% Naturally occurring Vitamin C.
Camu Camu and Vitamin C
Oranges provide 500-4,000 ppm vitamin C, or ascorbic acid; acerola has tested in the range of 16,000 to 172,000 ppm. Camu Camu has 30 times the amount present in an orange
Camu-camu provides up to 500,000 ppm which is about 2 grams of vitamin C per 100 grams of fruit.
In comparison to oranges, Camu-Camu provides thirty times more vitamin C, ten times more iron, three times more niacin, twice as much riboflavin, and 50% more phosphorus.
1 teaspoon equals about 180-250mg of Vitamin C.

How our Camu Camu is Processed:
Our camu camu is harvested directly into canoe boats during Peru’s rainy season – a challenging process because the land is flooded and a large number of the fruit are submerged under water. At our supplier’s collection facility, all fruit undergoes careful inspection and washing by hand before being peeled and juiced. The pulped camu fruit are then placed into a custom designed dehydrator, which slowly removes moisture whilst maintaining a constant temperature below 45°C. The dried camu camu can then be milled into a fine powder, which is meticulously tested before packing to ensure that it is free from any potentially harmful microbes, eliminating the need for heat sterilisation.
