The Goji berry - the "happy berry" - is well known in Aisa for thousands of years. Goji berries are a shrub of the Solanceae family that is a member of the Plantae Kingdom. It grows up to a height of one to three meters in the temperate regions and the subtropical belts of China, Mongolia, and the Himalayan regions of Tibet. It is locally known as Lycium Barbarum, Gou Qi Zi, Fructus Lycii, or the Wolfberry.
The Goji berry is an herbal plant that has been used in ancient China and India to promote health. It is also said that it bestows longevity and supports one's vitality in high age. In our modern times, the Goji berry has reached the western world wher eit has become a vital food for anyone who wants to establish a healthy and conscious nutrition in their lifes.
Goji berries, when dried, are similar in size and shape of raisins, being dark red in color and are slightly elongated or oblong. The Goji berries are shaken from the vine (plant) and collected into trays. Then, the Goji berries are dried slowly in semi-shade so the fruits won’t spoil. Our Goji-berries are from certified organic origin.
Goji berries can be consumed in several ways. They can be eaten with cereals, porridge, smoothies, yogurt or as an herbal tea. They can be consumed just as raisins, as they delicious and mildly sweet taste which reminds of the taste of cranberries and cherries.
