Description Ingredients
 
These Goji Berries are grown in the fertile valleys of Ningxia Province, China. Here, in their indigenous terrain, the berries are vine-ripened, harvested in the summer months, and dehydrated at low temperatures for maximum nutrient preservation. These pure goji berries are raw, kosher, gluten-free, vegan, and certified organic.

The Goji Berry, also known as wolfberry, and in pharmacological references as Lycii fructus, is a bright orange-red fruit containing tiny yellow edible seeds. Grown for commercial use predominantly in China & sometimes wild-crafted in certain regions of Tibet, this "red diamond" has been used in Chinese Medicine for about 1,900 years. This superfruit combines exceptional nutrient richness and antioxidant quality with an appealing taste.

Purity Guaranteed: Although "wolfberries" can be obtained in Asian markets at a fraction of the cost, it is not recommended. "Wolf berries" have been detected to have excessively high levels of pesticide and fungicide levels leading the FDA to seize some imports. Vivapura ensures that the low-temperature dried (naturally in semi-shade) goji berries we provide are of the absolute highest quality and purity, exceeding the standards of many sources in the raw food market place.
