This powder has been made by removing the pulp from the seed of the buriti palm fruit, dehydrating it, and then pulverizing it.
Aguaje, or Buriti, is known to have tremendous nutritional content. It is high in beta carotene, vitamin A, and vitamin C. Many people in Peru use this when experiencing menopause, due to its phyto-hormones, and also to lower their cholesterol levels.
Start with a small amount if this is your first time trying it. Some, very few, have an allergic reaction to aguaje. Safety first!
