These small, shrivelled red berries have been used in Chinese medicine for more than 6,000 years and are alleged to boost the immune system and brain activity, protect against heart disease and cancer, and improve life expectancy. (See below).
Really delicious and super in smoothies, on salads, in porridge and added to Muesli.
Perfect for ... breakfast or lunch.
Store in an airtight container in a cool dark place.
There is no reliable evidence to support the alleged health benefits. Most of the research into these conditions are small-sized, of poor quality, and performed in laboratories using purified and highly concentrated extracts of the goji berry. Please read our Organic Philosopher's Blog on Superfoods. Great taste though.
Goji berries contain vitamin C, vitamin B2, vitamin A, iron, selenium and other antioxidants (notably polysaccharides).
Nothing on official nutrition dataset, I'm afraid.
