DESCRIPTION



FREEZE DRIED GOJI BERRIES - all natural freeze dried Goji berries made from organic Goji berries (Lycium barbarum) cultivated in Romania.

This new unique product is made from organic Goji berries that
are a rich source of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino acids,
polysaccharides, phenolic compounds, flavonoids and many more
phytonutrients.

Due to the high amount of natural sugars found in the berries, called Lycium barbarum polysaccharides (LBP), they have a natural vibrant sweet taste.

The freeze dried Goji berries have a very low moisture content of only 12% in comparison to heat dried berries (25%). This low moisture content is enhancing the sweet taste even further, resulting a very intense taste experience.

The berries can be eaten dry or rehydrated. Due to the freeze drying process that keeps the structure of the berries intact, they can be rehydrated close to their original form and can be eaten like that or it can be used in cooking, baking, oat meals, smoothies, etc.

Throughout the whole process, from growing to harvesting, through drying and packaging, at all times special care is taken of the berries, to preserve the freshness and potency of the product. We do this in order to be able to provide our customers with a unique product in it’s purest form and of an unmatched quality.

WHAT IS FREEZE DRYING?


Freeze drying, also known as Lyophilisation, is a low temperature dehydration process that involves freezing the product, creating a vacuum in the drying chamber, then removing the ice by sublimation. This is in stark contrast to dehydration by most conventional methods that evaporate water using heat. 

Freeze drying results in a high quality product because of the extremely low temperature (-50C) used during the drying process. The phytonutrients found in Goji berries are extremely sensitive to the high temperatures used in the conventional drying methods, only freeze drying can ensure the preservation of 97% of all compounds.

The freeze drying process is done in state of the art pharmaceutical units, that maintain the original shape of the berries and the quality of the rehydrated product is excellent.

HEAT vs FREEZE DRYING

The fact that freeze drying can remove most of the water from the berries, translates into a more than 2x increase in volume/weight ratio compared to conventional heat drying. The attached picture shows 200 g of heat dried Goji berries (imported from China) on the left, side by side with 200 g of our freeze dried Goji berries (cultivated in the EU), on the right side.

Besides the fact that heat drying destroys most of the beneficial compounds found in the berries, the heat also makes the berries turn brown. The only reason why the heat dried berries sold on the market are red is because prior to drying they have been treated with sulphur based coloring agents to which many people are allergic to and can be damaging to the human body.

Our freeze dried Goji berries have not been treated with any chemicals or preservatives, there is no need for that since freeze drying is a much superior process than heat drying that preserves the colour, shape, phytonutrients and great taste, resulting in a much higher quality product.
