Navitas Naturals Goji Berries

Goji berries have been enjoyed for over 2,000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Navitas Naturals Goji Berries can be eaten by the handful, and they provide a superfruit boost to oatmeal, cookies, trail mix and more. A surprisingly strong source of protein, goji berries also contain a wealth of antioxidants and over 20 vitamins and minerals.

Vitality Superfruit
The goji berry, also known as the wolfberry, has been cherished throughout Asia as one of the most nutrient-rich foods for thousands of years. Several accounts have been documented throughout time heralding the health benefits of the berry. Only recently have Western cultures discovered the remarkable nutritional profile of this tasty little berry.

Product of China
Navitas Naturals Goji Berries grow in the lush, fertile valleys of the Ningxia Province in China. Small purple flowers growing along thorny bushes of the Lycium barbarum plant blossom into delicate small orange-red fruits. When the berries on the vine ripen during the warm summer months, they’re hand harvested and dehydrated at low temperatures for maximum nutrient preservation. Our goji berries are certified organic, kosher, vegan and raw.

Macronutrient Balance
Navitas Naturals Goji Berries provide a number of important macronutrients including carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats and soluble fiber. There’s even more to this sweet little red berry including 18 amino acids, free-radical fighting antioxidants, carotenoids, vitamins A, C, and E, and more than 20 other trace minerals and vitamins including zinc, iron, phosphorus and riboflavin (B2). Ounce-for-ounce, goji berries contain more vitamin C than oranges, more beta-carotene than carrots, and more iron than soybeans and spinach.

A Delicate Sweetness
Cultures with a long history of traditional goji use prepared a soup or porridge by blending the berries with rice, meat and vegetables. Navitas Naturals Goji Berries have an exceptionally pleasant chewy texture and an outstanding flavor that’s somewhere between a dried cherry, raisin and cranberry – but the taste is uniquely its own. They’re perfect for snacking straight out of the bag, but don’t stop there! Goji berries are also a healthy choice to add into oatmeal, cookies, cereal and trail mix. In Asia, the berries are commonly soaked in water to create a nutritious tea.
