Acaí Berry Products

Açaí (ah-sah-EE) is one of the latest and greatest wonder foods, hailed for everything from antioxidant to aphrodisiac properties. Now it's making its way onto supermarket shelves in juices and snacks. Of course, we can't evaluate the healthful effects of any of these products - we're just going to show you how much sugar they contain. We'll let you weigh the potential benefits vs. the sugar content.
