The fruit also contains natural rutin and bioflavanoids which increase the effect of Vitamin C. Camu Camu Mega-CTM contains trace elements such as iron, phosphorus, beta carotene, calcium, vitamin B1, B2 and B3, as well as a comprehensive complex of minerals and amino acids. This species grow wild in abundance in swamps along rivers and lakes in Peru, rediffian Brazil and Venezuela. Our full flavored, dark Camu Camu Mega-C ColoradoTM Red powder is derived from the whole Camu Camu berry harvest at maturity and pured skin and all. The pure is then dehydrated in top quality stainless dehydrators to make the characteristic dark, reddish-brown powder. Typically it has a wild berry or orange-lemon flavor and is more tannic to taste than our Camu Camu RosadoTM. An excellent source of natural vitamin C, it is perfect for use in juices, smoothies, teas, pastries or food bars.
