Have you ever missed something from your childhood? Something that was once phenomenally right for you and you knew it? That was once the feeling that gripped several Brazilian expatriates in the future in 2005. They had just finished playing soccer in San Diego. “We had all grown up with acai, and we began talking about how great it was once in Rio with that active way of life – the Cariocas of Rio are famous for having an active way of life and a balanced diet, and acai is a large a part of that. That was once the missing piece: the acai. There were companies bringing it to the U.S., nevertheless it just wasn’t what we grew up with – it wasn’t fresh. So we determined to start Acai Roots™, and do it right.” Lately Acai Roots offers a full line of delicious and healthy acai berry products including organic acai sorbet, organic juices, smoothies and supplements. Formulated to exacting standards by Brazilians who were born and raised on a healthy diet of acai.
