Organic Goji Berries

One of the only Certified Organic gojis available

Our berries are grown exclusively in the mineral-rich soil of a pristine Chinese valley, whose alluvial soils have been nourished by millennia of spring floods from the Yellow River. Farming is an ancient traditional lifestyle here, and 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.

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 where they are washed in a water bath before undergoing controlled dehydration at RAW temperatures (under 105°F) to achieve the right balance of dehydration without losing their chewy texture.

Certified USDA Organic Goji Berries

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 ELF provides direct, traceable sourcing from a single cooperative of small farmers.While the goji berry has exploded in popularity, the rush to fill this demand has led to a reckless lack of oversight among goji producers, importers, and distributors. We were one of the first companies in the US to test competing "organic" gojis for traces of pesticides — discovering, among other things, that many were contaminated with high levels of sulfites (which have been known to aggravate symptoms of asthma in sensitive persons).

Sustainable Goji Berries

Keeping it clean

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 contamination from mold,  rot, and waste from passing birds and animals. Our berries are hand-picked at the peak of ripeness and quickly moved to a pristine, certified organic facility where they are washed and dried at RAW temperatures.
