Why Are Goji Berries Dried?
Goji berries are quite delicate compared with other berries. They turn dark and lose some of their potency when touched by the oils in human hands. During harvest, goji berry bushes are shaken so the berries land on a tarp. If they must be touched, they are handled by gloves.
Moist goji berries cannot sit in warehouses for very long because the moisture attracts bacteria and mold. Drying them preserves them naturally without any additives.
