Inca Berries – Sweet and sour Superfruits
Inca berries (Physalis peruviana), also known as aguaymanto berries or golden berries, grow wildly in mineral-rich soils in the Peruvian Andes and have been enjoyed for their health properties in South American cultures for thousands of years.
They are an ancient food, one of the lost crops of the Incas, for some years now enjoying resurgence in the whole world. The tasty, sweet-and-sour Incan berries grow in papery husks resembling Chinese lanterns, which protect them.
Inca berries are bursting with nutrients – especially protein, phosphorous and Vitamins A, C, B1 and B6. Incan Berries offer high levels of bioflavonoids. Many studies on bioflavonoids have demonstrated their antioxidant, antiviral, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. The golden berries also contain a lot of pectin, which not only helps in regulating digestion and blood sugar, pectin also works to lower cholesterol levels.
Why we love Inca Berries
Inca berries got an exquisite, exotic sweet-and-sour flavour, which is unique. They make a delicious, satisfying snack. Their complex flavour is excellent with chocolate or wine.
Inca berries are considered amongst many health enthusiasts to be the goji berry of South America. They exceed goji berries in the amount of protein a bit (approx. 16%), which is an extraordinary level of protein for a fruit. Foods rich in bioflavonoids like the Incan berries play a crucial role in detoxification, nutrient absorption and capillary strength.
The small, chewable seeds inside the Incan berry have a mild laxative effect, which is beneficial for indigestion.
