90% of the Açaí berry is its seed which is inedible and has no nutritional value. All the goodness lies within its 10% skin with all the antioxidant, healthy essential fatty acids, fibre and other nutrients.

 

However, Açaí berries are not seen out of the Amazon forest as it is highly perishable upon picking and they will dry and ferment within days.
