People ask me what the difference is between acai and the acai berry. The answer is Nothing! Acai is a plant, it grows, and produces clusters of berries which are harvested. Just like any other berry, fruit, vegetable, or edible plant, acai berry is made into other acai products which make it easier (even feasible) to transport to other parts of the world.
So remember, when people refer to acai or acai berry, it is one in the same!
