Acai berry products have been in the news a lot in the past several years. Thousands of products contain acai in one form or another. We can drink it in a smoothie or tea, we can eat snacks with acai, we can take pills or supplements, and it can even be used in recipes.
But what is acai? I covered this in “Are Acai Berries Good?”. You may want to read that article before you continue. There you can find out many of the benefits and even check the medical studies that are referenced.
What I want to cover in this review is who is Terrasoul Superfoods, why use Terrasoul acai powder, what I like and what I dislike about Terrasoul acai powder.

What I want to cover in this review is who is Terrasoul Superfoods, why use Terrasoul acai powder, What is Terrasoul’s philosophy, what I like, and what I dislike.
Who is Terrasoul Superfoods?
Like most of us, you may not have heard of Terrasoul. They do not run big ads on TV with overpaid celebrities endorsing their products. This is a simple family started business that chose to invest in their products and not all the hype that surrounds similar big-name products.
Terrasoul Superfoods was founded in 2013 by Amy and Dennis Botts in Texas. They began their journey in health to inspire others. Their passion led them to create high quality superfoods that anyone can benefit from.
Terrasoul provides a wide range of quality products, but in this review, I will only be discussing the acai powder. This way I can provide you with as much information as I can on this one product. I will write reviews on other Terrasoul products sometime in the future.
Terrasoul operates on a fair-trade model and seeks to offer opportunities to everyone in their supply chain. They work directly with farmers, co-ops, and manufactures to offer their customers efficient access to organic products. They currently source over 70 ingredients from 23 countries.
Their slogan is simple but meaningful “We sell the foods we know and love”. To me, this means that they believe in and use their own products. A lot of companies do not use what they make, they simply are in it for the money and not necessarily passionate as to what is truly best for their customers.
Personally, I would rather deal with smaller businesses, they seem to take care of their customers better than large corporations as I have found out by personal experiences. This is why I tend to focus more on smaller family type companies than larger corporate products.
The acai powder is sourced from the Amazonian rainforests of Brazil. Their acai berries are frozen immediately after harvesting, then freeze-dried in the US to retain the berry’s potent nutrients. Acai are loaded with antioxidants, fatty acids, and other vital nutrients.
Terrasoul has chosen to include the pulp into their powder. This has a slight brownish tint and is not the deep purple color of other brands. They have decided to do this since the pulp is an excellent source of omega 3.
The powder does not require refrigeration after it is opened. To maintain freshness, make sure the bag is zipped closed completely. I have heard that a mason jar is a great way to store the powder as well. This would provide an air tight seal to maintain freshness.
What I like About Terrasoul Superfoods Acai Powder
- Certified: USDA Organic, Non-GMO, Kosher, and naturally gluten-free
- Sustainably harvested
- Rated 4.3 out of 5 stars on Amazon with 791 reviews as of 8/1/18
- Terrasoul is quick to respond to comments and are customer focused
What I do not like
- There are several complaints of people having issues with the packing and affected the quality of the product. Terrasoul is changing their packing.
- The color is not as deep of a purple that some people want.
- If you want a smoother drink, you need a high-speed blender such as a Vitamix or Ninja due to the grainy texture.
There are many health benefits to adding acai to you diet. It does not take much of this nutrient packed product per day to benefit from. Terrasoul has a great company philosophy and high-quality products. They source their ingredients in accordance with fair-trade standards. Since the product is priced right, it is definitely worth a try. When my other acai powder runs low, I will order this one and try it for myself.
This may be the first product that I have given a 9 out of 10 without trying. With almost 800 reviews, most of which are very favorable as to quality, freshness, and effectiveness. The price in my mind also helps. I have decided that based on these reasons, they justify the rating. This could change after I try it in a couple of weeks.
Please do your research on any supplements that you are thinking about taking, then talk to your doctor. Give them all the information that you have found and make sure the supplement will not interact negatively with any medication you are currently taking. Keep in mind, that a good doctor will be open-minded and willing to take a look at your research, especially if they have your best interest in mind.
