Goldenberries have been enjoyed by South American cultures for thousands of years, including the Incan empire. To create our Goldenberry Powder, fresh goldenberries are freeze-dried and milled into a fine powder at low temperatures to preserve the nutrients and tangy flavor. The powder is a delicious source of beta carotene, bioflavonoids, vitamin A and protein.

- How to use it
Product of Colombia
The goldenberry farmers that we partner with in Colombia cultivate organic crops on the side of lush rolling hills near the equator at about 8,500 feet elevation in the Andes Mountains. In May 2012, our CEO and founder, Zach Adelman, visited the association of farmers to discuss new initiatives to boost their organic businesses. This unique Goldenberry Powder is the exciting result of that meeting.

Carotene and Bioflavonoids
Navitas Naturals Goldenberry Powder is a plentiful source of key nutrients including vitamins A and C, beta-carotene and bioflavonoids. It also contains an abundance of protein, dietary fiber and phytonutrients.
Carotene and Bioflavonoids
Traditional and folk healing systems throughout the world have recognized the many medicinal properties attributed to this sweet and tart berry. Due to its high level of bioflavonoids, the goldenberry is an excellent addition to your diet if you're looking to boost your intake of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich foods. Decreasing inflammation can help reduce the risk of certain types of illnesses including hypertension, heart disease and arthritis, and antioxidants have been shown to protect cells from free-radical damage that can lead to certain types of cancer.
The cultivation of goldenberries is a sustainable choice that is beneficial for the environment as well as for the people that grow the plant. Goldenberries are a reliable alternative for the replacement of cash crops that deplete soils. Our goldenberries come from plants that thrive among other crops on well-managed organic farms.
