Acai acts as a real appetite suppressant and without making you feel guilty since acai is only 70kcal per 100 grams. Its fibers provide a satiety effect for several hours.

The legend of the crying fruit...
A long time ago there lived a young Amazonian girl called Iaca. His father was the leader of a tribe that had grown so large that there was no longer enough food for all his people. The chief then decreed that all newborns had to be killed. But some time later, Iaca gave birth to a child from whom she had to part.
After crying for her child for some days, One night Iaca heard baby cries coming from outside. She found no one, but, exhausted,she laid down under a fruit-covered palm tree that had just emerged from the ground.
The next day, the tribe discovered Iaca's body under the new tree. Intrigued by this palm tree which they had never seen, the villagers ate the fruit which filled them up and gave them energy. The chief then repealed his cruel decree and declared that these fruits would bear the name of his daughter, but in reverse: Iaca became Acai.
Thanks to the abundance of food, the tribe grows and flourishes.
This is how for decades the Acai has been appreciated by all the Brazilian people.
