Goji berries, are a so-called ‘superfood’ and commonly used in China to aid in health related ailments such as low libido, eye sight issues and to help prevent colds. As the BBC reports, they are said to contain, weight for weight, more:
- vitamin C than oranges
- beta-carotene than carrots
- iron than steak
and loaded with other nutritional goodies.
This nutritionally-rich fruit has been used in China for over 5000 years and has become more and more common in the West in the past decade. They are usually sold dry and taste like a slightly more tart, savory cranberry.
Dried goij berries can be found in most health food and organic food stores in Stavanger as well as most of the rest of Norway. They can also be bought online from places like this and are permissible to be imported into Norway for personal use.
