Raw Organic Golden Incan Berries by Sunfood - 8 oz

Golden berries are one of the lost crops of the Incas, and one of the small selection of foods grown at the ancient mountaintop citadel of Machu Picchu. A nutritional powerhouse, golden berries contain vitamins C and A, iron, pectin, beta-carotene, protein, bioflavonoids and niacin, and have a mouth-watering, tangy sweetness that you'll love (and kids love them too!) We’ve tried a lot of golden berries, and Sunfood’s are by far the best. They’re soft and plump and sweet. They’ve got a delightful chewy quality, and a complex floral citrusy flavor, like kumquats and tangerines and roses.

The Sunfood Difference

Sunfood’s organic golden berries are grown high in the Andes by indigenous farmers who have been perfecting the art of growing this fruit for centuries. Growing golden berries at just the right altitude is crucial, as the fluctuation in temperatures between night and day regulates the flavor of the fruit. After harvest, the berries are gently dried at low temperatures to preserve nutrients and keep vitamins and minerals intact.
