BEST VARIETY: All berries used by Red PowerGoji are the best "Ning Qi No.1" variety of goji. This superior variety is a cultivar of the first wild goji berries which history records being discovered on the high plateau of Ningxia along the upper reaches of the Yellow River about 2500 years ago. This variety of goji has the highest levels of polysaccharides ¨C 5-6 percent vs. only 2-4 percent for common goji.
FRESH FROM FIELD-TO-FACTORY: Have you ever eaten a fresh goji berry? Probably not, unless you were lucky enough to pick one in a field in Ningxia. They are simply too perishable to be marketed fresh. That is why Red Power Goji's high-tech processing plant is located in such a remote area of Western China. It is just 30 minutes from our growers' fields. This allows us to rush the fresh berries to the factory in time to preserve all the natural goodness of the fresh berries in all our goji products. We guarantee that all Red Power Goji products are made from fresh goji berries that were picked within six hours of processing.
CULTIVATED FOR QUALITY NOT QUANTITY: Our contract growers cultivate berries using "organic" practices. All of them have the China Green Certificate organic certification, and some also have the USDA NOP Organic certification. Our growers' goji bushes are not planted close together to maximize yield per acre. They space their goji bushes to receive maximum sunlight (for maximum polysaccharide levels) and prevent pest infestation.
HAND-PICKED: All of our berries are hand-picked from the bushes one-by-one. This ensures that the goji entering our plant for processing are not damaged.
