A slew of superfoods trickle onto the health food scene each year. Some cement themselves in diets while others’ popularity is fleeting. It’s a tricky area to navigate, and once you feel on top of superfood trends the next challenge is finding out the where to purchase them. So, to make your healthy life a little simpler, here are the superfoods not going anywhere and where you can find them - along with a couple of newbies set to make their mark. Kale, you may be so 2016 but we can’t quite boot you out of the fridge yet.
Meet the new Acai berry, Maqui. Maqui’s are the latest berry to grace the superfood scene, and we don’t know how it’s taken so long. The berries are loaded with antioxidants, regulate blood sugar levels, boost metabolism and contain anti-inflammatory agents along with vitamins and minerals. Served best in a powder added to smoothies, Maqui berries are grown in the Patagonian region of Chile but are now available Down Under. Because it’s newly popular, Maqui powder is tricky to purchase in Australia, so it’s easiest to buy the product online. However, mass health food companies like Loving Earth are now making their own so it’s bound to be in the big supermarkets soon.
