Tropical Health Foods

Finest Quality Carao Fruit

Since 2002 we distribute the world's highest quality carao fruit. It is produced by ourselves in Costa Rica, using our sister company Dulce Salud.

Our carao extract is far more concentrated than any other carao product available. The product is approximately as concentrated as bees' honey and of the same consistency. Like bees' honey, it is so concentrated that it will not ferment or otherwise deteriorate when kept at room temperature.

We use only carefully selected, ripe, wild-crafted carao pods. The carao nectar is extracted and concentrated without cooking, which converves the legendary nutritional value of carao. Our product is 100% pure concentrated carao; there are no other ingredients.

Carao fruit is a natural food, often mixed with milk or milk substitute to make a delicious beverage. It is world-renowned for its health-giving properties, particularly as a natural blood builder. Information and reports on carao fruit as a natural blood builder are found on our website (The carao fruit product is not intended to treat any disease or condition.) Buy Now

Due to the high concentration of Tropical Health Foods carao product, it is much more economical than watery, dilute versions. Most people take 4 teaspoons per day, usually 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening. At this rate, one bottle will last 18 days.
