Maqui is a deep purple berry harvested in the pristine conditions of Patagonia, Southern Chile,.The maqui berry is celebrated for its high content of vitamins, dietary fibre, protein, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. The Mapuche people of Chile have been consuming maqui berries for centuries. The rich, purple pigment of this amazing fruit, similar to acai, blueberry, aronia and blackberry, indicates the presence of a wealth of nutrients and in particular, antioxidants.
Maqui berry powder (pronounced ‘mockee’ berry) has a deep fruity berry flavour similar to blackberries. Our maqui berries are hand-picked from the maqui shrub, only the finest berries are selected and preserved through a natural process by rapid freezing and drying in a high pressure vacuum. The dried maqui berries are then ground into a fine powder.
Maqui berries grow in upland conditions, where the plant absorbs an astonishing array of nutrition from the soil within which it thrives. This helps to make maqui one of the most antioxidant-rich fruits available.
