How do you pronounce Acai?

Have you heard of Acai berries? They are the fruit of a palm tree (Euterpe oleracea) that grows in flood plains of the Amazon basin. These tiny purple berries are highly nutritious, and have been a staple part of the Brazilian diet for centuries.
Amongst other nutritional highlights, they are exceptionally rich in a group of antioxidant compounds called anthocyanins, and also contain omega-3, -6 and -9 fatty acids, fibre, minerals and vitamins. These acai berries are considered an energising superfood!
Does anyone know how to pronounce Acai? Lets look at how others have pronounced it. The video was taken at the RioLife team sponsor Social Diaries annual christmas party.

  1. Thank you Terasa for this information. I always used to pronounce it as AKAI rather than ASAI. Now while selling Acai Berry Juice I can pronounce its name correctly.
