Goldenberry (Physalis peruviana) or Aguaymento, is one of the five Peruvian superfoods with the greatest health benefits, it also has an incredible sweet and sour citrus flavor and an exquisite aroma.
The goldenberry is a plant native to the Peruvian Andes and has been cultivated since the time of the Incas. It is usually cultivated in the regions of Junín, Cusco, Huánuco, Cajamarca and Áncash.
When fresh, it has a high content of antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin C, phosphorus and potassium. This superfood is considered a great help to strengthen the immune system.
Since goldenberry is a powerful antioxidant, it can also help slow down cellular aging and improve cardiovascular health. Numerous studies have shown that goldenberry reduces cholesterol levels in patients with hypercholesterolemia.
NXTDRIED: Turn goldenberries into a crunchy snack and a recognized superfood.
Goldenberries are generally eaten fresh or dried. Generally, the dried goldenberries that we can find in the market have been dried with traditional methods, thus losing the nutritional value of the fruit.
NXTDRIED, decided to invest energy and resources in finding the best drying method for this Peruvian treasure.
The dried goldenberry that we can find in the market loses much of its unique properties, it has a chewy texture, a dark color and a very sweet taste. The dehydration method does not allow the good preservation of Vitamin C or Vitamin A. As a result, the dried aguaymanto that we can find in retail outlets usually has 11 mg of Vitamin C (100 g).
NXTDRIED sought to responsibly share the great treasures of Peru with the rest of the world. To this end, it has developed customized processes for each type of fruit with the aim of optimizing their individual organoleptic, nutritional and physical characteristics, including EnWave’s licensed REVdried technology as a differential factor.
In addition, NXTDRIED chooses the best Peruvian organic fruit farms under global quality certification agreements. It responsibly offers technical support to local farmers and a guaranteed sale of their crops.
Thanks to the requirements of NXTDRIED, the fruit is harvested to the optimum point of ripeness before being processed. From tree to package in 10 days!
NXTDRIED has perfect control over the result of the local supplier, it has the best raw material, exhaustive control of production and packaging. Which translates into total traceability.
Thanks to the philosophy and commitment of NXTDRIED, the fruit does not go through freezing processes, it is always processed fresh and at its optimum ripeness point. This is what allows NXTDRIED to have snacks and ingredients with a unique flavor, color and aroma on the market.
For this reason, the aguaymanto that NXTDRIED has managed to launch has a crunchy texture, a vibrant color and an explosive and unique flavor that invades the senses.
In addition to the sensory experience, it is a snack, a fragment or a powder that is now considered a superfood due to its preserved nutritional values.
Thanks to REV technology, the business model and its sustainability model, the NXTDRIED team has managed to launch a revdried goldenberry with 332.2 mg of Vitamin C (100 g) and 292 of Vitamin A (µg retinol).
The goldenberry that NXTDRIED has launched on the market is not only one of the most complete superfoods, it is also a sensory explosion that communicates, throughout the world, the richness, biodiversity and Peruvian quality.
