Acerola is a fruit with high vitamin C and vitamin A content frequently utilized for medical purposes. Acerola extract treats diseases like scurvy that are linked to vitamin C deficiency.

It is occasionally used to treat depression, collagen problems, tooth decay, and gum infections. Both acerola extract powder and acerola extract liquid are available as acerola extracts.

Market Dynamic


One significant water-soluble vitamin is ascorbic acid. Humans cannot produce ascorbic acid, although most plants and animals can. Therefore, it is necessary for humans as a dietary supplement. Vitamin C is abundant in acerola, a fruit. Food and beverage producers are compelled to use acerola extract in their goods due to this property of the section.

Acerola is one of the few fruits that includes multiple phytonutrients, including phenolics, flavonoids, anthocyanins, and carotenoids, in a considerable proportion, in addition to being a rich source of ascorbic acid. These phytonutrients all aid in the treatment of various illnesses. Due to its strong antioxidant activity, acerola encourages the inactivation of free radicals, which are directly linked to aging and diseases like cancer and cardiovascular ailments.


One of the richest sources of ascorbic acid in nature is acerola, which also contains several phytonutrients such as carotenoids, phenolics, anthocyanins, and flavonoids. Acerola has a storehouse of phytonutrients, contributing to the fruit’s strong antioxidant capacity and other intriguing characteristics.

However, in addition to acerola, a number of naturally occurring sources have strong antioxidant efficacy, such as green tea extract and rosemary extract. Rosmarinus officinalis is a Mediterranean herb from which rosemary extract is made. The rosemary plant’s antioxidant properties are due to the phenolic chemicals it contains.

Rosmarinic, carnosic, and carnosol are the main components of rosemary extracts that define their antioxidant activity. These compounds are powerful radical scavengers. Catechins make up most of the polyphenolic chemicals in green tea extracts, which are used as antioxidants.


The new standard for food and beverage items is the clean label. Since consumers are continually looking for ‘natural’ products that incorporate naturally natural, fresh, nutritious, and balanced nutrition, they now choose natural antioxidants in prepared food products. 73% of customers are willing to spend a higher retail price for a food or drink product created with ingredients they are familiar with and confident in, according to Ingredient Communications.

Since people believe natural substances to be safer and healthier, natural antioxidants are more likely to be accepted than synthetic antioxidants. As a natural antioxidant, acerola extract is rapidly gaining popularity in the food and beverage sector. Several expansion potentials exist for producers of acerola extract due to the expanding trend toward clean-label products, which is gradually becoming necessary globally.

It permits the myoglobin that gives fresh meat its color to remain reduced. This explains why the market is expected to grow rapidly in this area.
