What size, brand and quantity of freezers would you recommend for storage, based on your experiences?
Does shipping the acai berry from my stock (my warehouse) to my store require any special attention?
At the end of the day, if I have thawed the acai berry to put into the machine but have not used it, can I freeze it again?
Choose to buy an express machine, with the programmed option of conserving the product in your tub. You must have this option in the machine, as the frozen and thawed acai berry again will be crystallized and loose its flavor and color.
ACAI BERRY FRUIT WHITENING
The whitening of the fruit is also a thermal process, applied after harvest and before the fruit becomes pulp, where the fruit is selected and washed, in order to inactivate enzymes and fix the color.
The whole process consists of immersing the acai berry in water at a predetermined temperature, or expose the fruit to flowing or superheated steam.
After bleaching, the fruit is subjected to cooling, avoiding the contamination of microorganisms and the loss of texture.
These procedure guarantees a final product 100% free of contamination and with fruit´s original color and flavor.
We appreciate the interest of potential customers who submitted these questions to us, and we would like to leave this channel open for further questions about our market niche to all who wish to start or improve their acai berry and ice cream business.
