The Low Down: Goji berries contain more vitamin C than oranges, more beta-carotene than carrots, and more iron than soybeans or spinach! These berries are potent with nutrition and contain high quality proteins, healthy fats and soluble fiber. Don’t forget to smile! Rumor has it Goji berries, often referred to as “The Happy Berry”, can help stimulate mood and boost libido.
Taste: We use organically grown pure Goji berries that are vine-ripened, harvested in the summer months, and dehydrated at low temperatures for maximum nutrient preservation. These bright red berries have a pleasant chewy texture and sweet taste. They are a powerful topping on any of our açaí bowls.
Saga: Goji berries have been appreciated in Asian herbal medicine for several millenniums, but only recently have western cultures “discovered” the power of this remarkable food. A small and red berry, goji’s grow on a thorny perennial bush, and are indigenous to the difficult terrains of the Himalayan mountain range.
