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.
Camu Camu contains powerful antioxidants, most notably Vitamin C. Its antioxidant properties may help protect the body against cancer, heart disease, and autoimmune disease.
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.
