Our non organic dried goji berries are fruity and delicious. Goji berries contain all essential amino acids, have the highest concentration of protein of any fruit and are very high in vitamin C and carotenoids. They also have 21 trace minerals including iron, calcium, zinc, selenium and are high in fibre.
Native to the Himalayan mountains of Tibet and Mongolia, goji berries have been used in Chinese medicine for years and the nutritive and claimed medicinal benefits of goji berries are many and legendary. Goji berries are very high in antioxidants, are anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. As always, the RealFoodSource recommends customers always do their own independent research.
Please note that our current batch of non organic goji berries DO NOT contain the preservative sulphur dioxide, you will find this in almost all non organic goji berries, even when most suppliers will not mention the preservative it is very likely to be present (also note there is no labelling requirement to show this). Some batches do contain the preservative but we will always inform customers in our listings.
Goji berries are easy to enjoy in home made health bars or smoothies or as a topper for cereals such as muesli or porridge. If you don’t have a powerful blender/food processor you may want to keep them soaked in a little water or apple juice to soften them before blending. They are also delicious when combined with our dark chocolate in homemade bars or treats or in a homemade trail mix with our macadamias and cashews.
