Exotic Superfruits Are Making Their Way Into Health Foods

February 26, 2011: 07:41 PM EST
Food and beverage ingredients experts see a bright future for three exotic botanicals that offer an array of potential health benefits. The purple berry maqui, found in Patagonia, is rich in antioxidants – more than four times the amount in blueberries – and is already being used in superfruit juice blends because of its creamy taste and hints of dried fruit flavor. The green, velvety fruit of the baobab tree has six times the antioxidants of blueberries, more calcium than dairy products and six times the potassium of bananas. The red berry camu camu, harvested from a bush that grows along the Amazon River, has 60 times the vitamin C of an orange and is packed with antioxidants, phytochemicals, polyphenols and amino acids.
