Details

Incan berries, also known as ‘Golden Berries’, are native to Amazonian regions of South America, where they have been a traditional source of food and medicine for centuries. Indeed, these small, yellow/orange berries, which are slightly larger than raisins, pack a mighty punch, and contain an impressive selection of valuable nutrients, including vegetable protein, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12 and C, pectin, bioflavonoids, phosphorus and a small amount of melatonin. And Incan berries, which are gently sun-dried once fully ripe, are literally crammed with crunchy, lemon-flavoured seeds that lend them a surprisingly delicious, sweet and sour flavour. 

Incan berries grow on the Physalis peruviana – a plant native to Amazonian regions of South America, where the yellow/orange berries have been used as a traditional source of food and medicine for centuries. Today Incan berries, also known as ‘Golden Berries’ and ‘Aztec Berries’, are cultivated in many other tropical, subtropical and temperate areas, including South Africa, Turkey and even England.

  • Sparkles in a berry

    Angela | 4/9/14

    Gorgeous product. We in my family call these the sparkly berries. I have a 2 and 6 year old who actually say sparkly berries please mummy because they sort of have a bitter/sweet taste that somehow leaves you wanting more. knowing they are really good for you too is a bonus. Plus they are so soft and chewy, lovely.
