Orange-toned goldenberries, also known as gooseberries or Incan berries, have been cultivated in South America for centuries and revered for their health benefits and mouth-puckering sweet and sour flavor. A handful of goldenberries provides a hefty dosage of antioxidants, and in traditional folk medicine practices, goldenberries are believed to help maintain a healthy weight, ward off disease, and improve organ function.
Goldenberries contain anti-inflammatory bioflavonoids and are also a good source of vitamins A (great for eye health!) and C. Unlike more common dried fruits, packaged versions of this trending superfood often contain no added sugars or preservatives, which means you aren't loading up on unnecessary calories and chemicals. The wrinkly, thick-skinned exterior contains a seedy, chewy interior that bursts with tart, citrusy flavor, similar to a kumquat. See how to prepare and eat goldenberries.
