Dried Goji Berries

Dried Goji Berries:

Our berries are handpicked at their peak of ripeness and dried in net type tents as shown in our video. Occasionally we find that excess rain in the harvest season causes some producers to look to technology for their drying needs. This is not in any way a negative in our opinion. Recently we have seen state of the art German technology employed to ensure that the harvest was not lost to the juice industry because of a shortage of sunlight days. Berries at 10% moisture which are sealed in mylar bags can be kept for years. We have learned that much of the nutrient testing by the Ningxia Institute of Food Science & Technology uses berries from 1 to 3 years old. Properly dried berries do not suffer much nutrient loss when kept cool, dry and air tight. Refrigeration is not required.
