Goji berries have been conditioned to grow in harsh climates, and the resulting fruit is much more flavorful and nutritious. The remote areas of the Qinghai Province are perfect, and they naturally receive clean air, plenty of sun, and uncontaminated water
Goji berries are only harvested once per year, a process that takes place between August and October. Once collected the beans are transported to a nearby facility.
Cleaning and drying goji berries must be done quickly upon arrival. The berries are washed and laid out to dry off. Under close supervision, the berries are “baked” in small batches at low temperature to ensure that just enough moisture is removed. When the goji berries are dry, they are quickly freeze dried at -4 degrees Fahrenheit, ground in cold temperatures until fine and packed.
Goji berry powder has a slightly sweet, cranberry-raisin like flavor, can be used in beverages, sauces, baked goods and is high in Vitamin A, potassium and other beneficial nutrients.
