Description: This article reports a study of the concentrations of dietary fiber (DF) and antioxidant capacity in fruits (pulp and oil) of a new açaí (Euterpe oleraceae) cultivar??BRS-Pará?, with a view to determine the possibility of using it as a source of antioxidants in functional foods or dietary supplements. Results show that ?BRS-Pará? açaí fruits has a high content of DF (71% dry matter) and oil (20.82%) as well as a high antioxidant capacity in both defatted matter and oil. ?BRS-Pará? Açaí fruits can be considered as an excellent source of antioxidant dietary fiber. Antioxidant capacity of açaí ?BRS-Pará? oil by DPPH assay was higher (EC50 = 646.3 g/g DPPH) than extra virgin olive oil (EC50 = 2057.27 g/g DPPH). These features provide açaí ?BRS-Pará? fruits with considerable potential for nutritional and health applications.
