Organic Raw Maqui Berry Powder. Maqui berries are small, dark purple fruit found on trees growing in the Patagonia region of Chile and Argentina. Also known as the ‘Chilean Wineberry’, Sevenhills Wholefoods’ maqui berries have a similar taste to blackberries, and are extracted from an exclusive annual yield of only 90 tons, due to the area’s remote access and difficulty for transportation. While it has been a part of local diets for many years, the berry has recently gained a world-wide reputation as an excellent source of antioxidants – even rivalling acai berry.
Sevenhills Wholefoods’ organic maqui berries are grown in Chile. The berries are wild grown, and harvested from the Chilean rainforest by the local farmers. The berries are extracted by local people, using methods that avoid damage to the plant and fertilise the soil around it. Once collected, the berries are then processed into a pulp, freeze-dried and then milled into a fine powder to preserve the maximum amount of nutrients.
Maqui contains a range of nutrients, including Potassium, Calcium, Manganese, Iron and Copper, yet also is known for its antioxidant content. In addition to helping maintain an effective, healthy immune system, maqui’s antioxidants help neutralise free-radicals in the body and prevent further oxidative stress damage, leading to healthier, and more prolonged cell life.
Recommended use: add 1-2 teaspoons of the powder to milk, juice or a smoothie, or alternatively add to your diet by sprinkling onto food.
