Goji Berries

Shanti's organic Goji Berries are dried, whole berries without added preservatives, oils, salt or sugar. These plump and oblong berries are fruity in flavor, while chewy and tender in texture. Our Goji Berries are ideal for snacking, cooking, baking, or topping foods, such as cereal, granola, yogurt, and salads.

Goji berries, also known as wolfberries, are a reddish-orange berry with a slightly sweet and usually sour flavor. With very high antioxidants content and great anti-inflammatory properties among other amazing qualities, goji berries are known to be one of the most nutritionally dense foods on Earth.

Story, Folklore, History...

Cultivated along the fertile floodplains of the Yellow River, for more than 600 years, Ningxia wolfberries have earned a reputation throughout Asia for its premium quality, sometimes described commercially as "red diamonds".

When ripe, the oblong, red berries are tender and must be picked carefully or shaken from the vine into trays to avoid spoiling. The fruits are preserved by drying them in full sun on open trays or by mechanical dehydration employing a progressively increasing series of heat exposure over 48 hours.

Not sure about the previous review, I received just goji berries and used them in tea as well as in a trail mix. They’re a bit more dry than other places, but the flavour is just as good. Plus organic is always a big bonus.

This made a good tea, but there were more ingredients than just goji berries. My sample had some kind of tea leaf in it and also some sugar balls.
