Commercial products derived from the acai fruit (Euterpe oleracea Mart.) are available in Brazil, but in Venezuela, it is only known by ethnic indigenous groups of the Amazon. In this study, acai flour was made by solar dehydration and the effect of processing on the composition, microbiological quality, and antioxidant properties of such flour were evaluated. The fruit was purchased in Puerto Ayacucho, Venezuela, and a portion was manually pulped. Microbiological quality, proximal composition…

Towards chemical characterization and possible applications of juçara fruit: an approach to remove Euterpe edulis Martius from the extinction list
Juçara (Euterpe edulis Martius) is a palm widely distributed in the Atlantic Forest. It produces a non-climacteric, black-violet small fruit similar to the Amazonian açaí (Euterpe precatoria). The
Optimization of Microwave and Ultrasound Extraction Methods of Açai Berries in Terms of Highest Content of Phenolic Compounds and Antioxidant Activity
Rapid technological progress focuses on lowering costs, labor and time. Thus, in order to minimize the expenses of bioactive compound production, great effort is undertaken to optimize the extraction
AÇAÍ SEED BRAN IN THE FEED OF SLOW-GROWTH BROILERS
TLDR
The results indicated that ASB can be included in proportions of up to 10% in the diet of slow growth broilers at early development stage without impairing performance, representing a viable alternative for broiler production, with potential for reduction of the negative impacts generated by açaí residue in the environment.
Euterpe oleracea Mart. extract prevents vascular remodeling and endothelial dysfunction in spontaneously hypertensive rats
TLDR
The results suggest that ASE produces antihypertensive effect and prevents the vascular dysfunction in SHR, through mechanisms involving antioxidant effects and NO production, and provides scientific data to confirm the potentials of Euterpe oleracea Mart as an anti Hypertensive medicinal plant.
Protective effect of Euterpe oleracea Mart (açaí) extract on programmed changes in the adult rat offspring caused by maternal protein restriction during pregnancy
This study examined the effect of açaí (Euterpe oleracea Mart.) seed extract (ASE) on cardiovascular and renal alterations in adult offspring, whose mothers were fed a low‐protein (LP) diet during
Açaí reverses adverse cardiovascular remodeling in renovascular hypertension: a comparative effect with Enalapril.
TLDR
ASE substantially reduced cardiovascular remodeling and recovered endothelial dysfunction in 2K1C rats probably through its antihypertensive, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory actions, supplying a natural resource for the treatment of renovascular hypertension.

TLDR
A significant relationship was found between individuals who had been bitten by the triatomines and had positive serology for Chagas disease and a better understanding of the dynamics of transmission of T. cruzi and the risk factors that contribute to its occurrence in a region are needed to develop effective strategies for control of ChagAs disease.

TLDR
Açai was recognized for its functional properties for use in food and nutraceutical products and in the presence of ascorbic acid, acylated anthocyanin sources generally had increased color stability.
Total oxidant scavenging capacities of Euterpe oleracea Mart. (Açaí) fruits
TLDR
The antioxidant capacities of 11 commercial and non-commercial samples of Euterpe oleracea Mart (açaí) fruit pulp were studied with the total oxidant scavenging capacity assay in a modified and automated version against three reactive oxygen species and the correlation between sample concentration and antioxidant capacities was non-linear.
