PRLog - March 26, 2010 - Cupuacu is a tropical tree related to Cocoa. Cupuacu trees usually range from 5 to 15 meters (16 to 50 feet) in height. Cupuacu fruit grows in the Amazon rainforest. The brown fruits ripen in the rainy season. They are oblong in shape and are about the size of a melon. The white fruit pulp has a unique fragrance and a creamy exotic flavor. Cupuacu beans can be used as a good substitute for Cocoa because they contain a similar antioxidant profile.

There are many benefits of Cupuacu, most of which are tied to the fruit's extremely potent phytonutrient polyphenols, anti-oxidants, essential nutrients, vitamins and others. It is rich in antioxidants. Its traditional use is by women who experience difficult births and labor pains. Used as a stimulant, it increases energy and stamina. Cupuacu fruit is high in vitamin C and polyphenols, including a unique type of polyphenols called theograndins. In South America, cupuacu is used to make ice cream, juice, and various sweets.

Cupuacu fruit has phytonutrient polyphenols (theograndins). These have a myriad of nutritional benefits. Cupuacu is also heavy with vitamins B1, B2, B3 (Niacin), fatty and amino acids, and at least nine antioxidants (including Vitamins A and C). Being from the cocoa family, Cupuacu also has high flavanoid content. There are many other ingredients in the nutritional content of these rainforest fruits as well, including calcium, selenium, and others.

Its primary health benefit is stimulating the immune system while simultaneously supporting the body's ability to fight disease. Cupuacu has a caffeine-like effect, but does not contain caffeine. Most of the benefits of Cupuacu are synergistic. For instance, the energy-boosting effect mentioned comes primarily as a result of the fruit's heightening of the immune system, lowering of blood pressure, and the body-boosting effects of the fast-acting nutrients and vitamins from the fruit.

The major volatile compounds in this Amazonian fruit are ethyl butyrate, hexanoate, 3-methylbutanal, dimethylsulfide, dimethyldisulfide, beta-linalool and several alkylpyrazines.
