camu-camu is a shrub native of the Peruvian rainforest, of the same family as guava. The fruit is edible and commonly used in Peruvian cuisine. It is 2 to 4 cm in diameter, has an orange-red color and a sour taste, it is considered a "superfruit" as it is one of the richest in vitamin C fruit with Acerola (Malpighia emarginata, Malpighia glabra).
rich in vitamin C (between 3.5% and 9% of the dry weight) camu-camu also presents lots of antioxidant compounds, polyphenols such as flavonoids (myricetin, proanthocyanidins, ellagic acid, etc.), tannins (ellagitannin, essentially present in the seeds) or anthocyanin compounds, as well as terpenes (alpha-pinene, limonene, carotenoid, etc ...). Camu-Camu also contains amino acids (valine, leucine, serine), and potassium.
