When I was in Colombia, I had my very first Golden Berry (Amla, Goose Berry, Inca Berry), in its raw form, off the vine. I found myself craving this superfood since my trip and wanted to touch on some of its wonderful nutritional elements as I’ve been adding it into my diet in its raw-dried form.
With a 16% protein content and rich in vitamin A, C, B-complex (including B12), minerals, pectin, antioxidants, fiber and vitamin P (bioflavinoids), this is a mega superfood for everyone—especially vegetarians. I pop into Moon Juice for their special snack pack, or Navitas is wonderful as well. Perfect to toss into smoothies, raw treats or tote around in my bag all day.
