Sourced from South American Heights

Hailing from the high-altitudes of South America, goldenberries (Physalis peruviana) are small, round, yellowish fruits, known by many names, including Inca berries, Uchuva and Cape Gooseberry.


Whilst Goldenberries are becoming a more well-known superfood in the western world, they have been consumed in other parts of the globe for hundreds of years, enjoyed for their sweet-tart flavour and dense nutrition.


At Superfood Ingredients we offer 100% pure organic raw goldenberries, which have been sun dried after being harvested from organic farms in Peru. We also supply a spray dried goldenberry extract, which sees the fresh goldenberries turned into a practical powder form ready for use in foods, beverages and supplements. 


In France goldenberries are more affectionately known as ‘amour en cage’, which is a phrase literally translating to ‘love in a cage’. If you’re wondering where this comes from, it’s all thanks to the fruit’s delicate paper-like ‘wrapper’ or husk that wraps around it, encasing the berry inside.


A Low Calorie Nutrient Booster

Our sun dried goldenberries make an ideal nutritious healthy snack on their own, however, they are versatile in their use. Their chewy texture make them an ideal fruit to add to cereals or snack bars. As they are dried by sun only they are suitable for use in raw treats too.


At Superfood Ingredients we also stock a spray dried goldenberry extract. This powdered form of the berry is perfect for adding to juices and smoothies due to its high solubility. As well as these beverages, our spray dried powder can boost the nutrient profile of jellies and many other products where a powder is required.



The benefits of

GOLDENBERRIES


Goldenberries are gaining recognition thanks to their nutritional brilliance and touted health benefits. Packed full of vitamins and bioflavonoids, goldenberries are rich in antioxidants and have potential anti-inflammatory properties. When it comes to sustaining healthy weight loss, goldenberries could be a key player due to their low calorie content as well as their beneficial impact on the digestive process.



Immune Boosting

Our immune system helps to protect us against disease, however, when our immune system is weakened we are more susceptible to common illnesses, such as the flu. Fortunately, goldenberries are rich in essential minerals and vitamins that help to take care of and protect our bodies.


Vitamin C is a well known immune boosting vitamin as it offers protection against harmful bacteria and viruses. This handy vitamin can be found in goldenberries berries, along with some bioflavonoids also known as vitamin P. These bioflavonoids are said to enhance the benefits of vitamin C, not to mention they’re rich in antioxidants themselves, which protect against the cell-damaging effects of free radicals.


Friendly Foods for Diabetics

Goldenberries have been shown to have positive effects on regulating blood sugar levels due to the pectin they contain, making them ideal for those with type 2 diabetes. When our bodies break down sugar and starch, there is an enzymatic process taking place which spikes blood sugar levels. However, research suggests that goldenberries may hinder this enzyme which ultimately controls the impact of carbs on blood sugar.


People who suffer from diabetes experience damage to the weakest organs in their bodies, with eyesight being one of the first things to deteriorate. Goldenberries are packed with Vitamin A, which has been shown to help prevent the loss of vision and maintain healthy eyesight.


Healthy Weight Loss

Goldenberries make for a great snack, particularly for those looking to lose weight. This is due to their low calorie content, coming in at only 53 calories per 100 grams of fresh fruit. Even though they are low in calories, they still pack in a lot of healthy nutrients, such as vitamins A, B and C, as well as bioflavonoids.

 

The way in which our bodies digest goldenberries also make them an impressive dietary supplement. The fibres found in the berries are digested slowly by the body, which helps us feel fuller for longer - thereby suppressing the appetite.


Anti-Inflammatory Agents

Packed full of cell protecting antioxidants, goldenberries are believed to help suppress inflammatory responses for sufferers of arthritis, gout and other muscle aches and pains. In fact, these berries are thought to even reduce inflammation in arteries and blood vessels, which helps protect against heart disease and hypertension.


Research has also shown that goldenberries could play an important role in controlling the spread of cancerous cells. A nutrient called withanolides is understood to be responsible for the slowed spreading of these cells, and other nutrients found within the berry can also help. Pectin, for example, can potentially protect against some cell mutations which lead to cancer.
