The plant’s watery habitat means its fruit is an ideal source of food for fish, thought to be the main agents of dispersion for this species – in fact the name camu camu is believed to originate from the distinct “camu” sound made as fish pluck the floating fruits from the water’s surface.

The product is never exposed to temperatures above 45°C, and the most advanced dehydration technology is used throughout processing, to ensure that the high vitamin content of the fruit is preserved and the camu camu powder we sell is of the highest quality.
