Like the acai, camu camu has been hailed a super fruit and is also grown in the Amazonian rainforest. The large, reddish berry-like fruit is said to be a powerhouse with a whole heap of nutrients – 30-60 times more vitamin C per serving than an orange, amino acids to aid everything from muscles and bones to cognitive function and digestion, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties, antioxidants and potassium. It is also used for certain eye conditions, is said to have anti-cancer properties and to be able to help fight colds and depression. You can’t buy the bitter-ish fruits but camu camu is sold as capsules and as a powder, available online and from pharmacies and health food stores. There is some concern that camu camu could interfere with certain chemotherapy medications so check with your doctor first if that is the case. Use the powder in smoothies, in yoghurt (it goes well with tart fruits like raspberries and citrus) and, should you visit Peru, you can enjoy it in icecream. It’s one of their most popular flavours.
