A little bit about golden berries:
Originally cultivated in the Incan Empire, golden berries are not your average fruit. Sweet yet tangy, these mouth-puckering berries are best noted for high amounts of beta-carotene and bioflavonoids, which support anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity, among many other benefits.
They are also a great source of vitamin A and C, and contain a good amount of pectin, which is a fantastic source of soluble fiber to keep your digestive system happy. Unlike other fruits, these berries contain a high amount of protein (16%).
