I discovered Goji Berries about 5 months ago when I wrote: Goji Berry: A Himalayan Superfruit that Can Save Your Health and Vision. Now, I eat them on a regular basis.
Most people like to sprinkle them in salads, cereals, etc, but I tend to like to eat my fruits in whole by themselves. I snack on goji berries like another person might snack on a bag of pretzels.
Now that I’ve consistently added this superfruit to my diet, I had the curious thought today wondering which brand of Goji Berries is the best. So far I’ve only tried two different brands, Navitas Naturals Organic Goji Berries Himalyan Superfruit and Himalania Organic Goji Berries. Of the two I prefer the Navitas brand for several different reasons.
I purchase my Goji berries at my local Whole Foods Store. At this store, first of all, the Navitas brand is $1 less expensive than the Himalania brand. Goji berries are pricey as it is so if you can save any money on them it’s a good thing. Secondly, the Navitas brand has about 100 less calories for the same weight content as the Himalania brand. And, lastly, I just prefer the taste of the Navitas brand. The Himalania brand has a little bit of a bitter after taste to it that I don’t find with the Navitas brand. The icing on the cake is that the Navitas brand is USDA Certified Organic and very high quality. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with them.
But, today I was wondering, surely there must be other brands I haven’t discovered yet and wondered how those compare. Through searching the internet I discovered some interesting things.
According to several different opinions, apparently Bija Heaven Mountain produces a brand of Goji berries that outshines the Navitas brand that I wholeheartedly love. According to the reviews it has a sweeter, moister plump flavor. You can find this brand at Vitacost.com.
I also found another review that praises the brand California Academy of Health or CAOH. They say that this brand is softer and sweeter than Navitas and have a fresh picked taste. Looks like I’ll have to see for myself. When I find out with firsthand experience, I’ll report back.
What’s your experience been? I’d love to know!
