Juice (Single Strength)
Araza was domesticated in western Amazon, in the area that is now known as Peru. The fruit is very attractive to consumers because of its delicious tart flavor, and is traditionally consumed as juice. Araza is still often used to make juices, soft drinks, ice-cream, preserves and desserts.
The fruit is rarely eaten raw because of its acidity (pH 2.4 in the case of the juice), and more than 20 percent of whose fresh weight is represented by 2 percent of ascorbic acid. Araza's potential is due to its intrinsic characteristics as a fruit: pleasant flavor, color, texture and smell.
The nutritional value of Araza is very similar to that of oranges, with the exception of the vitamin C content - it is double in Araza.
