Buriti: The carotenoid bomb

Buriti: The carotenoid bomb In Brazil, the fruit is considered a real superfood and not without reason: among palm fruits, buriti is the richest source of beta-carotene in the world and is used in Latin America as a sunscreen but also as a dietary supplement. The high density of carotenoids is the reason for the reddish color of the oil and vitamin-A contributes to normal immune system function and maintenance of normal skin and hair. Our pure buriti oil is not heated as by other manufacturers. It is obtained by gentle cold pressing at room temperature. The gentle process preserves all bioactive ingredients. We promise a real quality product for use in food and natural cosmetics.

Buriti from wild palms

Buriti from wild palms Buriti oil is extracted from the ovoid fruits of the buriti palm (mauritia flexuosa). The palm grows in the Brazilian Amazon often near ponds, rivers and swamps. The buriti palm is the most common palm species in the north of Brazil and bears 400 to 500 kg of the oleaginous fruits per year and therefore does not need to be grown conventionally. The buriti fruit is collected wild by several indigenous communities in the depths of the Amazon and around Manaus.
