Ancient Superfoods

Goji Berry History

While the goji berry has exploded in popularity, and it now seems to be everywhere, the rush to fill this need has led to a reckless lack of oversight among goji producers, importers, and distributors. Essential Living Foods is one of the oldest and largest importers of goji berries in the US, with over a decade of experience interfacing with suppliers, farmers, and certifiers in China. We were one of the first companies in the US to test competing "organic" gojis for traces of pesticides — discovering that many were contaminated with high levels of sulfites (which have been known to aggravate symptoms of asthma).

Unlike many others on the market, our goji berries are actually USDA Certified Organic (as opposed to the Chinese "Green Seal" certification used by many other operations). Most goji suppliers buy from large aggregators with no traceable supply chain increasing the chances of contamination or poor quality. Only we provide direct, traceable sourcing from a single cooperative of small farmers, and we ensure purity and quality through personal meetings in China with farm managers and processors

Nutrient Dense Goji Berries

Our berries are grown exclusively in the mineral-rich soil of a pristine Chinese valley, which has been nourished by millennia of floods from the famous Yellow River. Farming is a long-standing traditional lifestyle here, where multiple generations of families come together cooperatively to tend and harvest exquisite goji berries (and share in the profits of this growing industry). Our farming partners take pride in producing an exceptionally high-quality product.

While many of the traditional goji farms in China lay the berries out on mats in the fields to sun-dry, this can lead to a variety of problems with animal contamination, mold, and rot. Our berries are hand-picked at the peak of ripeness and quickly moved to a pristine, certified organic facility where they are washed, juiced, and dehydrated.

Finally, the goji powder is twice inspected and lab-tested for the pesticides, chemicals, and contaminants typically found in untraceable Chinese gojis — all to ensure that you get the purest, most flavorful and nutrient-rich goji powder on Earth!

Preserving Goji Berry Nutrients

Like many of our other berries, harvesting, washing, and drying are crucial to ensuring a high-quality final product. Timing of the harvest is important, as nutrient and flavor profiles will be off if picked too early or left on the bush too long. Entire villages come together to accelerate the harvest process, where each delicate berry is picked by hand.

The berries are collected in buckets and plastic bins, covered to prevent contamination or solar "burns," and trucked a short distance to a western-standard HACCP/GMP facility.

There they are washed and drained before being pureed. The puree is sterilized, filtered, and then spray dried with about 6% rice dextrin added to prevent clumping. The final product is bagged, vacuum sealed, and shipped to our facility in the US before final inspection and repackaging for you.

It takes 10 pounds of fresh Goji Berries to make just 1 pound of our Goji powder! Because of the careful selection process and extraction methods, every batch of this product is guaranteed to have at least 40% polysaccharides.
