Did you know that the human body
does not naturally manufacture vitamin C? Because of this we must get it
from dietary sources (but many animals, including dogs, do manufacture
their own vitamin C).
CAMU CAMU is a superfood champion
originating from the Amazonian rainforest in Peru. Camu camu berries are
known to be one of the most concentrated botanical sources of Vitamin C
in the world (2–3% of fresh weight). Our Camu originates from the
mineral rich soil of the Amazonian Rainforest of Peru, is Certified
Organic, Kosher, Vegan, Gluten Free and low temperature processed. It
takes 5.6 kg of fresh fruit (including the skins and seeds) to make 1 kg
of Giddy dried camu camu powder. 1.5 tsp. (5g) of Giddy Camu camu
contains approximately 880% of the RDI of Vitamin C.
Camu is a wild growing bushy
riverside tree bearing a cherry-like fruit with a purplish red skin and a
yellow pulp surviving best in hot, damp tropical climates. Camu thrives
in the Amazonian flood plain taking four to five years for the bush to
bear fruit. Both the wild and cultivated variety can remain productive
for several decades.
Camu is typically harvested directly
into a freezer boat, which travels down the waterways of the Amazon
where it is picked at the height of ripeness and flash-frozen. It’s then
taken to a processing plant where it is thawed, processed, and spray
dried. The resulting powder is tangy and ranges from a pale pink to
yellow beige to a brick red colour.
How to eat Giddy CAMU CAMU:
Use ¼-1 tsp. as many times per day as needed or desired. Try blending
camu in juice, water or smoothies, raw ice creams and desserts. Use
common sense caution when introducing any new food into your diet.
