Buying organic goji berries online – what you need to look out for
Dried goji berries and other superfoods are currently all the rage in the world of smart foods. As a result of this high demand, many goji berry suppliers are taking the opportunity to create cost-effective products with low-grade raw materials.
Studies carried out across Germany by the Chemical and Veterinary Investigations Office in Stuttgart determined that 12 out of the 13 conventionally grown goji berries they tested were polluted with pesticides and plant protection products. Residues of heavy metals were also detected. When buying goji berries you should make sure that they have not been sulphured, since this preservation process destroys the vitamin B1 contained in the berries. The sulphur prevents the berry from maturing and changing colour.
That's why when buying goji berries you should check the organic quality of the raw materials. Natural ingredients from certified organic sources are well tolerated by the body and are easier to absorb than synthetically treated substances. Goji berries in organic quality are also free of pesticides, chemical fertilisers, sulphurous preservatives and additional flavourings.
