What are Inca Berries? (1, 2)
Incan berries, aka golden berries are grown in high altitudes in tropical areas of South America. This fruit, similar to a cape gooseberry, is a glossy yellow-orange color, surrounded by paper like leaves. They are an amazing source of fiber, with 8 grams per 1/4 cup! They are a rich source of potassium, phosphorus and calcium and also high in vitamins A, B, and C.
Health Benefits of Inca Berries (1, 3)
- Increase metabolism
- Promote digestion (due to the high fiber)
- Help control diabetes (again, partially due to the high fiber content)
- Clean the blood
- Support the prostate gland
- Helps improve vision
- Helps prevent lung cancer
- Boosts immunity

How to use it:
They are mainly used in a dried form, similar to raisins. They can be used in jams, sauces, puddings and pies. (Or anywhere you’d use raisins!) Throw them in a trail mix or just eat them by the handful!
