Organic goji berries (aka wolfberries) are the fruit of the Lycium barbarum, a shrub that belongs to the nightshade family and is native to the Himalayan region of China. This bright red superfruit boasts a low glycaemic index rating of only 29 and is loaded with valuable nutrients, including vitamins B1, B2, B6, C & E (indeed, organic goji berries are one of the richest sources of vitamin C on the planet), zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium and phosphorus, carotenoids, polysaccharides and beta-sisterol.
Organic goji berries posses an intense flavour that many liken to a cross between cranberry and cherry. This makes them a particularly popular ingredient in a variety of rawfood snacks, such as raw chocolate, trail mix and desserts. Organic goji berries can also be used to prepare a rejuvenating tea and add an interesting and colourful twist to all manner of savoury dishes.
