The Golden berry is considered a good source of vitamin P (bioflavonoids) and is rich in pectin. Hundreds of studies on bioflavonoids have shown that they possess antiviral, anti-carcinogenic, antihistamine and antioxidant activities. Golden Berries make a delicious, tart and highly nutritious and exotic "raisin." They are high in phosphorous, vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B6 and B12. They are also extremely high in protein (16%) for a fruit.
