Goji berries are red coloured fruits of a tall bush (Lycium barbarium) that naturally grows throughout southeast Europe and Asia, but the best berries are known to come from northern parts of China. Chinese traditional medicine has been using goji berries, which in the late summer develop from beautiful purple flowers, for millennia. Nowadays, they are widely recognised as a healthy and delicious functional food throughout the globe. In shape and structure, they slightly resemble raisins, though they are easily distinguished by their unique sweet flavour, which is best developed only in the country of their origin.
PlanetBIO goji berries are cultivated in an untouched Chinese province Quinghai, following the strict rules of organic production. We have visited the suppliers of PlanetBIO goji berries by ourselves in 2013 and made sure that our goji berries meets the highest standards of organic production, sustainable development and fair-trade.
Organic certificate and the origin are especially important when choosing goji berries. Conventional cultivation uses tons of harmful pesticides that protect the plants from insects. Independent analysis of conventional goji berries always discover high levels of insecticides and fungicides that are harmful for our health and bad for the environment. PlanetBIO goji berries are guaranteed organic and contain no traces of harmful substances. We additionally test them with our own independent analysis, not only for the presence of pesticides, but also for heavy metals, mold and bacteria.
