Now Your Acai Juice Products

By David Williams

These days, one of the biggest trends in health and fitness is acai juice. Everyone gives a ringing endorsement for it, from doctors to celebrities, because the level of antioxidants in the berry can be as much as thirty times higher than other berries. An unfortunate side effect of the berry’s popularity is that many people who are not health professionals are trying to capitalize on it. There are a few things everyone should look out for when buying this juice to make sure they are getting the best possible product.

When shopping for an acai berry juice, look for one that is USDA Certified Organic. This guarantees that the juice will not have pesticides or other harmful toxins. If the juice someone consumes does have these chemicals in it, there is a good chance that it will end up doing more harm than good.

It is also important to choose a product that has no added sugar, since the extra sugar can actually contradict many of the health benefits. Sugar is one of the number one causes of inflammation, whereas acai is actually an anti-inflammatory. Acai has also been known to help with treating leukemia, but the cancer feeds off of sugar.

Packaging is also an important concern for this juice and consumers should only buy juice that comes in a glass bottle. Regardless of what the packaging might claim, any juice in a plastic bottle will be subject to plastic leeching. The juice is also hot filled in order to sanitize the plastic bottles, which can affect the nutritional value of the juice.

Consumers also need to know the facts about pasteurization and that it is necessary if the juice is going to be free of bacteria. If a label says that the juice has not been pasteurized, it is definitely dishonest due to the fact that non-pasteurized juice from acai is not FDA approved. If it is pasteurized the right way and at the right temperature, the juice will not be effected.

Since acai juice came to the forefront of health communities, many individuals and companies have tried finding a way to cash in. The problem is that they may not create their juice in a way that has any health benefits. Products that are free of additional sugar and that are USDA Certified Organic are the only choices that are sure to be healthy. It is also important to only choose glass bottles and to know that the juice must be pasteurized. These guidelines make it simple to choose a product that will enhance health.
