Açaí, a Global Super Fruit, Is Dinner in the Amazon

Traditional stands like this one in a poor neighborhood of Belém sell freshly processed açaí by the liter to local customers
In places like Cametá, a town of about 117,000, and Belém, the capital of Pará State, a bowl of açaí pulp is a filling side dish especially valued by poorer families.
