iM Direct – New Freeze Dried Maqui Berry

The Antioxidant Wonder: New Freeze Dried Maqui Berry

A millennial food that has been used in traditional medicine for ages, maqui berry is a small, round and deep purple fruit that grows wild in Chile, on the edge of the Andes mountain range.  What makes our freeze dried maqui berry so special for food producers?

The Marvelous Antioxidant Berry

Maqui berries are an antioxidant powerhouse, with a higher antioxidant content than citrus fruit, acai, blueberries and raspberries. They are rich in anthocyanins, a type of antioxidant that is good for inflammation and blood pressure. Antioxidants block cell damage and promote cell health, significantly reducing the risk of serious health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and possibly even cancer.

Our maqui berry is harvested responsibly and sustainably from wild Chilean growth, and certified as organic and non-GMO by the most trusted agencies.  It contains 100 percent maqui berry pulp and seeds, completely free of additives.

Other Health Benefits:

  • Boosts immune function
  • Regulates healthy cholesterol levels
  • Assists in controlling blood sugar levels
  • Reduces inflammation naturally
  • Promotes optimal cellular health
  • Protects cells from UV-related damage

Suggested Maqui Berry Products

Maqui berry powder is popular with consumers looking to implement an organic diet. This presents manufacturers with a huge range of potential products to market, from simple repackaging of the freeze dried, nutrient-rich powder itself to tasty fruit blends geared toward improving health.

  • Smoothies
  • Supplement tablets
  • Natural extracts
  • Maqui berry powder sachets
  • Ready-to-eat desserts
  • Skin care formulations

With proprietary powder blends and extracts, your company can market directly to end consumers. Buyers can decide their favorite way to consume the berry superfood, such as sprinkled over wholegrain breakfast cereal or added to high-energy shakes.

Maqui berry also adapts beautifully to organic products such as prepackaged diet smoothie blends and nutritious fruit bowls. Berry supplements may target specific audiences, such as individuals looking to boost immune function or control blood sugar levels.

Flavor and Color

We love the subtle flavors that are almost a combination of Aronia and Acai and unique tartness.  Chocolate, raspberry, raisin and cherry all come through.  Anthocyanins are behind the deep purple and violet colors.
