Jabuticaba Powder

Jabuticaba is a slow growing tree that is grown for the delicious purple, grape-like fruits it produces. Jabuticaba has white flowers that grow directly from its trunk.

The purplish black fruit is 3-4 cm in diameter and are borne directly on the trunk and branches of the tree lending a distinctly exotic appearance to the fruiting tree. Jabuticaba’s deep purple skin covers a sweet translucent white to rosy pink flesh with a sub acid tang. 


Several potent antioxidant compounds have been isolated from Jabuticaba fruit, including jaboticabin, a new depside unique to Jabuticaba. Jaboticabin is being studied for anti-aging applications.


Jabuticaba is a good source of Vitamin C. 100 grams of the fruit contains 57% of the RDI. Jabuticaba peel is also considered a good source of fiber.

Because the fruit begins to ferment 3-4 days after harvest, fresh fruit is rarely available outside of growing areas.


Jabuticaba’s striking color and delicate flavor impart unique qualities to jams, jellies, ice creams and wines. Jabuticaba makes a refreshing juice drink with a flavour that is compared to grape, blackcurrant, lychee, mangosteen and guava! The fruit is also appreciated for its exotic fragrance.
