Overview of Goji Berry Dried Nutrition

Scientific Name: Lycium barbarum / Lycium chinense


Order: Solanales


Family: Solanaceae


Goji berries (Lycium barbarum/Lycium chinense) or wolfberries are widely cultivated in China for use in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Goji berries are sweet with slightly sour flavor, and have a vibrant red hue. Dried goji berries contain high amounts of vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and iron. However, little is known about the content of other vitamins and minerals. In addition, there is no information on the flavonoid content of goji berries. Vitamin A (536% DV) may enhance eye health and protect against eye disorders like vision loss. Vitamin C (81% daily value [DV]) is an antioxidant that has many health benefits. For instance, vitamin C is used by the body to make collagen and important for the immune system. Iron (38% DV) is an essential mineral involved in oxygen transport and the production of healthy red blood cells. Goji berries are a good source of iron. The fruits are also high in fiber (52% DV) which is important for digestion. Goji berries are widely available in a dried form and can be used in both sweet and savory recipes. One can also soak dried goji berries for a few minutes in water to soften them. Rehydrated goji berries make a great addition to a variety of dishes.
