What is Cupuaçu?

Pronounced: Koo-pu-āh-soō

Cupuaçu (Theobroma grandiflorum) often hailed as the “Amazon’s Hidden Treasure,” is nature’s gift to your senses. It is a tropical fruit native to the Amazon rainforests of South America, primarily found in countries like Brazil, Peru, and Colombia. It is a close relative of cacao (the source of cocoa beans) and belongs to the same plant family, Malvaceae.

Cupuaçu is known for its unique flavor and creamy pulp, making it a sought-after ingredient in various culinary applications. Its taste is often described as a combination of chocolate and pineapple, with hints of banana and passion fruit. The fruit is roughly the size of a coconut and has a thick, brownish shell. Think of Cupuaçu as the Acai Berry’s cool cousin – it hails from the mystical Amazon Rainforest, offering a distinct, tantalizingly tart flavor that promises to ignite your taste buds like nothing you’ve ever encountered before!

Cupuaçu is not only appreciated for its flavor but also for its nutritional value. It is rich in antioxidants, vitamins (particularly vitamin C), minerals, and has synergetic effects.
