Goldenberry

GoldenberryPhysalis peruviana

A fruit that grows on wild shrubs, it is round, yellow and sweet. Its shell is cocoon-shaped and has a texture similar to paper. Goldenberries, also known as Physalis peruviana, is Peruvian fruit that's highly concentrated with nutrients and bioactive compounds. Its bitter and sour taste generates an agreeable flavor on the palate and is considered a superfood due to its health benefits and high content of Vitamin C.

Resembling a golden raisin but with a flavor that's sweeter and tart, golden berries are extremely nutrient-dense superfoods with easily absorbable bioavailable compounds. Goldenberries contain linoleic and oleic acid, two essential fatty acids that aid in insulin sensitivity and fat oxidation. There is also some research suggesting fatty acids’ effectiveness for promoting good health in general. They're also loaded with antioxidants. Phytochemical screening has revealed an abundance of flavonoids as well. Flavonoids are specific antioxidants that promote cardiovascular health and other benefits.
