NU Tapereba

taperebaTaperebá is a small orange or red coloured fruit, with a smooth fine skin and a succulent aromatic pulp. The sweet yet acidic flavour delivers a pleasant tang to juices and desserts. Being rich in calcium, phosphorous, iron and vitamins B and C, the juice has antibacterial properties and revitalizes the skin.

The taperebá tree (Spondias lutea) is not grown in plantations, rather the fruit is harvested from the many large naturally-occuring trees found cattered at low density over a wide area of forest in the north and northeast of Brazil. Consequently, the fruit is naturally organic.

Once harvested, NU Fruits of the Amazon’s taperebá is quickly taken to be processed and the 100% pulp is frozen, without the addition of any reservatives, colourants, flavouring or sugar, so that now the people of Australasia too can enjoy the natural flavour of the Amazon forest!
