Organic Goldenberries (Dried)
The Goldenberry is known as the Cape Gooseberry and its nutritional profile outshines many other super fruits. Our Dried Goldenberries are high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and are a rare fruit form of Vitamin B12, protein, and phosphorus.
Goldenberries, also known Incan Berries, have been prized for more than 1000 years as an incredible source of medicine and nutrition. Native to Colombia and Peru, this exotic berry is treasured for its healing properties, and it is one of a few select crops that are grown at the ancient citadel, atop the mountain at Machu Pichu.
An Astonishing Nutritional Profile
The nutritional profile of our Dried Goldenberries rivals many of the most popular super fruits, like the acai, goji, and schisandra berry. The mighty goldenberry is one of the only fruits to have a complete range of B Vitamins, including B12, which vegans know is difficult to find in plant form. Our Dried Goldenberries are extremely high in phosphorus, helping the body to absorb Vitamin B and build strong bones. Goldenberries are a rare fruit source of protein, with a makeup of 16% pure protein, an amount higher than the coveted goji berry.
The goldenberry may not be as well known as some of other super berries, but it packs a nutritional punch that can’t be ignored. Our Dried Goldenberries are rich in Vitamin A and C, as well as pectin, which acts as an antiviral, antioxidant, antihistamine, and anti-inflammatory. Foods high in pectin promote healthy digestion, and our Dried Goldenberries are a delicious way to keep the digestive tract functioning optimally.
A Rival for the Coveted Goji Berry
The goldenberry is often called the goji berry of South America, and it is consumed to attain outstanding health benefits for many of the body’s systems. Like the goji berry, goldenberries act as adaptogens, bringing the body to a state of balance, despite its condition. Our Dried Goldenberries help the body to become stronger during times of stress, which is often caused by emotional and physical exhaustion.
Research has shown that the goldenberry aids in total body healing. Our Dried Goldenberries help to increase metabolism, lower cholesterol, and promote good circulation, all of which are health benefits that are a great source of support for those suffering from weight issues. Goldenberries also make a great snack for diabetics because they do not elevate blood sugar like some other fruits. Many studies have shown that the goldenberry has the power to act as a cleansing agent, ridding the blood of harmful toxins. Some physicians have used goldenberries as a cure for prostate gland illnesses and the small berry has also been used to treat asthma, edema, optic nerve disorders, throat disease, and intestinal parasites.
Sweet And Sour, and Uniquely Robust
The goldenberry resembles a tiny, orange cherry, growing on resilient vines in warm climates. Protected by a little paper cape that gently encases the berry, the goldenberry is allowed to grow safely at optimal altitudes, and is then picked at the peak of its life cycle.
Our Dried Goldenberries are sun-dried naturally, which gives them a robust flavor, which is slightly sweet and slightly tart. Premier chefs are embracing the unique taste of the goldenberry, adding them to raw desserts, baked treats, and salads. Children and adults love to eat our Dried Goldenberries straight from the bag, and they make a healthier alternative to raisins. There is nothing quite like the taste of the goldenberry, in fact, many have called them addictive. Try our Dried Goldenberries in your favorite cereal, or on top of yogurt or granola.
If cared for properly, our Dried Goldenberries have a shelf life of up to one year. To preserve the freshness of this product:
- Avoid exposure to heat. The powder will remain fresh if stored at room temperature or below.
- Avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
- Squeeze all of the air out of the bag before sealing.
- Seal the bag tightly after each use.
- Store the powder in a dry place, and avoid all contact with moisture.
We package all of our superfood powders in all-natural brown kraft bags, each with a resealable zipper across the top. Each bag has a thin metal lining, which serves as a very effective barrier to light, oxygen, odors, flavors, moisture, and bacteria.
While printed plastic bags with clear windows may look beautiful, studies have shown that the toxins contained in the plastic are absorbed by food that is in direct contact with the plastic. Foods that are raw and all-natural, like superfood powders, are even more susceptible to this type of contamination than processed foods.
