Goji berries (Lycium barbarum), sometimes called Wolfberries, have occupied an important place in traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicine for thousands of years. The benefits of this ancient snack food, native to the Himalayas, have been passed down for generations. The FunFresh Foods brand is now pleased to share them with you. This incredible food is naturally sweet, delicious and loaded with powerful nutrients. Goji Berries are a high-ORAC, antioxidant-rich, raw food snack that is packed full of vitamin A. Goji berries make the perfect on-the-go snack and add zest to any party mix.
Goji berries have been traditionally regarded as a longevity, strength-building, and sexual potency food of the highest order. The farmer Li Qing Yuen, who apparently lived to the age of 252 years (1678-1930), consumed Goji berries daily. The life of Li Qing Yuen is the most well-documented case of extreme longevity known.
These Goji berries grow in protected valleys in million year old soil in wild and cultivated areas. The plants grow like bushes with vines that reach over 15 feet. The berries are never touched by hand as they will oxidize and turn black if touched while fresh. They are shaken onto mats, then dried in the shade.
The Goji berry is a deep-red, dried fruit about the same size as a raisin. The Goji berry tastes somewhat like a cross between a cranberry and a cherry.
