Goji berries (Lycium barbarum) are the most nutritionally dense fruit on Earth. Native to the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet and Mongolia, the goji berry is now grown in many other countries as well.
They are most often consumed raw, made into a tea or extract, or as an ingredient in soups.Gojis are most commonly available in dried form, and make a great snack eaten as is, added to trail mix, muesli or oatmeal. They can also be soaked for a couple of hours in enough water to cover them. Then the soak water can be drained off and makes a delicious drink, or both water and berries added to smoothies.
Gojis can often be found in Asian food stores, but most of these come from the commercial growing regions of China and Tibet, and contain high levels of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Even some brands which claim to be organic may not be, so be sure to source your goji berries from a reputable source.
