Acai has 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.
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 its 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 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.
What is Terrasoul’s Philosophy
Terrasoul operates on a fair-trade model and seeks to offer opportunities to everyone in its supply chain. They work directly with farmers, co-ops, and manufacturers 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 from personal experiences.
This is why I tend to focus more on smaller family-type companies than larger corporate products.
Why use Terrasoul Acai Powder
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 is loaded with antioxidants, fatty acids, and other vital nutrients.
Terrasoul has chosen to include the pulp in 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 airtight 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 is 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 or as 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. (I personally have a few Ninja products and love them)
There are many health benefits to adding acai to your 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.

I have always heard of acai, but never really knew it came in the powder form. That would be really good to put in some smoothies or shakes. Thank you for the information, I will have to check this out some more.
Paul, the powder is great in a smoothie. It may be a little grainy, but in a blender like the ninja, it’s fine.
wow I have never heard of Acai before. I am glad I read this article because now I will be adding this superfood as part of my healthy living.
I also love the fact that the Terrasoul is a great company that cares a lot about their customers by responding promptly.
Normally the underdog companies care a lot about costumers and their products tend to be high quality.
Thanx I will also check this powder out too.
Thabo, glad you enjoyed the article. I always like dealing with smaller companies when I can, I feel much more appreciated. I always feel like a number when dealing with larger companies.
Acai is a great product that I recently started using and I love it. I like how Terrasoul focuses on quality and responds to their customers. They may never be a large company, but their heart is in the right place.
I really like superfoods and I like that terrasoul is based in Texas I think I might have to try out their acai powder.
Hi Travis, I have only been using acai in my smoothies for a few days, but I can tell that my energy levels have gone up slightly. Acai has so many good benefits and they are so easy to mix into your normal diet.
Hi Jim, I have been a big fan of Acai. I love the taste and it is packed full of antioxidants as well. It is cool to see a company like Terrasoul promoting it. I have never heard of them before but I love the slogan if they stand by it. “We sell the food we know and love”. Got respect that.
Cliff, Acai is a great little addition to any healthy diet. Terrasoul does have a great slogan and from what I have seen, they do stand behind their products. I like dealing with smaller companies since they truly care about their customers.
Give them try and you’ll be happy you did.
Thanks for your comment,
Hi Jim! I’m actually in the search for a new acai podwer so this information really helped me, thank you for that. Acai is such an easy supplement, I love it. Have you tried it out yet? I wonder because i want to know how grainy the texture really is. Since my blender is not the absolute best that might be a problem.
Hi Daniella, I have been using acai in my smoothies for a few weeks. There is a difference in my energy level when I add acai. My blender is Ok, but I will pick up a ninja. I have heard a lot of good things about them. In the blender, I don’t even notice the texture with everything else.
I haven’t tried using acai in cookies or muffins yet, but I think those would be good uses of acai.
I would give it a try, Terrsoul has such a wonderful philosophy. I will order Terrasoul next and try there brand. With Amazon prime, I will have it in a couple of days.
Thanks for your comment.
Very interesting article! I’ve always wanted some type of supplement that will leave me with energy during the day, but will also let me sleep at night! I’ve tried a coupe but they seem to usually leave me restless thru the night.
The one’s you discussed above to seem to be very beneficial!
Thanks for sharing your great knowledge!
That is one of the problems with some supplements, they can leave you jittery at bed time. If you take them earlier in the day and they are absorbed into your system slowly throughout the day, you should not have that problem. Terrasoul does have some wonderful products.
Thanks for reading,
