They are the body and soul of our products and are examples of the flavor and richness that grows in Brazilian soil.
All fruits we use are organic and we always look for suppliers that respect the environment and the local communities.
The generous Brazilian biodiversity offers hundreds of possibilities for our endeavor.
As we needed to start somewhere, we chose four of the most symbolic fruits of Brazil: high energy of acai, acerola rich in vitamin C, the tasty guava and the varietal of mango known as Uba, unique to Brazil. By the way, mango is not natural from these shores, but it was imported from Asia by the Portuguese during the colony period.
Fruit is the basis of our products. Besides flavor, color, and texture, they bring you a part of the Brazilian soul.
Several Brazilian States
Sugar Cane Alcohol Vinegar
Our vinegar us nade from the alcohol of organic sugar cane. Our base vinegar is a handmade and organic product made with great care by Dom Spinosa, who is famous in Brazil for high quality craft vinegars and much appreciated by the Brazilian chefs.
Made through slow fermentation, up to two months, our vinegar is much more tastier and pure than mainstream vinegars.
When consumed in moderation, vinegar is considered a functional food, supported by several published studies highlighting its properties.
Seeds and Peppers
Brazil is not the original birthplace of peppers, but they were brought from Central America and the Andean region over the course of thousands of years.
Throughout time, the original peppers have undergone mutations when adapted to the new regions, such as the Amazon Basin.
Today, the Amazon region is home to many varieties from a pepper genus closely linked to Brazil: the Capsicum Chinense. From this genus come the Fidalga, Cumari do Pará, Murupi, and Bode peppers, among many others.
The inventory of Brazilian spices list is not limited to peppers, quite to the contrary! Brazil has several other seeds and sensational roots that are used in our culinary traditions, such as Tonka Bean (locally named Cumaru) and the highly energy Guaraná.
Amazonia Basin, Center-West Region and part of the Southeast.
Organic Demerara Sugar
Here in Brazil sugar is made from sugarcane, a plant native to India and brought to our land by the Portuguese in the beginning of the colonial period. Sugar is a source of energy, vitamins and mineral salts, but should be consumed with moderation.
There are several different types of sugar, from brown, the darkest and with a particular taste, to the refined white, used by the great majority of Brazilians. The darker the sugar, the less refined it is; meaning less chemical processing.
We use Demerara sugar, the second purest sugar available. It is a large-grained, raw sugar, with the advantage of not adding a strong taste to the final product.
Sao Paulo State is the main sugarcane producer in Brazil.
