Camu Camu or Myrciaria dubia is a sour berry found on shrubs that grow in the Amazon rainforest flooded areas, bearing a red-purple lemon-sized fruit. It is considered a superfood due to its high vitamin C content. It can have up to 60 times more vitamin C than an orange and a lemon.
Camu-camu is rich in antioxidants, including vitamin C. Its antioxidant properties may help increase energy and maintain healthy eyes, gums, immune system, skin and gut health.
When eaten raw, Camu-camu has a tangy and sour taste. This fruit is most popular in its powdered form, where it can be readily dissolved with other ingredients to have a sweeter taste.
