Goji berries are small, intensely red, and power-packed with vitamins. Also known as wolfberries, Goji berries have a sweet, slightly tart taste resembling a plum tomato.

Bursting with vitamins and anti-oxidants, their impressive nutritional credits include beta-carotene, Vitamins C, B1 and B2, lutein and lycopene. Very low on sugar, fresh Goji berries taste as if they have almost none. So, if you prefer a sweeter taste, you will love dried Goji berries.
