Maracujá Wholesale Export

maracuja

Maracujá is also known as passion fruit and can be found in two varieties: one purple-coloured and the other one yellow. The first one comes from the South of Brazil, while the origin of the other is uncertain. Its sophisticated and pleasantly acid taste makes it an ideal ingredient for juices, ice creams and cocktails.

Maracujá is a very good source of β-carotene and of vitamins of the B complex (especially, niacin) and enjoys high levels of minerals (calcium, potassium and phosphorus). Contains also passiflorine, an effective relaxing substance, that does not cause addiction.
