Native to Brazil, cupuaçu has been gaining national and international popularity due to its benefits and remarkable flavor.

The cupuaçuzeiro is from a very specific region of Brazil, in addition to Pará, its largest producer, is found in Amazonas, Rondônia, Acre and Maranhão. However, in recent years the cupuaçu has gone further and its consumption, popularity and sales have already crossed borders, becoming an ingredient so versatile that it can be found in the food industry and even in cosmetics.

Being a traditionally Brazilian and ancient fruit known to the native Indians of the Amazon, who not only consume the fruit because they like its flavor, but also for its healing properties, its name derives from Tupi: kupu which means “that looks like cocoa” and uasu “big”.

Thus, this relative of Cocoa has a remarkable flavor, Brazilianness and above all stands out for its benefits. With antioxidant properties, vitamin C, A, B complex, selenium and calcium which together improve the functioning of the body in general, help with abdominal pain, proper functioning of the intestine and assist in metabolism.
