Acerola Cherry is edible and widely consumed in the species' native area, and is cultivated elsewhere for its high vitamin C content.The fruit can be used to make juices and pulps, vitamin C concentrate, and baby food, among other things.
A comparative analysis of antioxidant potency among a variety of frozen juice pulps was carried out, including the acerola fruit. Among the 11 fruit pulps tested, acerola was the highest-scoring fruit, meaning it had the most antioxidant potency.
It is also one of three ingredients in a proprietary herbal medicine for allergic rhinitis.
