What are the side effects of shipping fruit around the world?
From everything I’ve read acai used in MonaVie is freeze-dried and shipped from the Amazon to the United States (specifically Utah) for bottling. This requires a lot of energy – energy in the form of oil or coal. Creating the energy to ship the fruit, leaves pollutants behind, and can’t be considered a good way for the US to reduce their dependence on foreign oil.
Many health organizations are suggesting that it is better if we eat locally grown food rather than importing it.
