Acerola in basket

Acerolife – less is more

Acerolife is a highly standardised source of natural vitamin C (up to 34%) derived from acerola cherries grown sustainably in Brazil. Our acerola cherries are harvested manually and processed carefully in order to preserve the fruit’s naturally high vitamin C content.

The resulting ingredient, Acerolife, is so rich in vitamin C that a lower dose is required to achieve 100% of the recommended daily intake.

It is ideal for dietary supplements and food and beverage products and is available carrier-free and in both organic and conventional formats.
