HEALTH BENEFITS: All about eyes!Goji berries, like all superfoods, are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Two antioxidants in particular are working toward the health of your vision.

Paired with fact that antioxidants aid in weight loss and help boost our immune system, vision health is more than an added bonus!
CULINARY TWIST: Reconstitute and reinvent!Right out of the bag, cooked, baked, or even reconstituted, goji berries are resilient to your culinary adventures. We love to rehydrate goji berries by soaking them in warm liquids. Put a spin on rum raisin bread by using goji berries steeped in the alcohol of your choice.
