Products made with Tuscan Goji
Gluten free No added sugar Yeast free Lactose free No GMOs
Our Health Tonics are a combination of the healthy properties of our organic Tuscan Goji berries and natural herbs. Wild plants are gathered at the foothills of an ancient volcano by an expert herbalist, who then makes the extracts from which our Health Tonics are created. We have launched the Antioxidant, but intend to widen the range of tonics with other products developed to obtain specific benefits for our health.
Our Antioxidant Health Tonic is authorized by the Health Ministry and the packages contain a graduated scale with which to identify the recommended daily use. This recommended quantity was reached thanks to research conducted by the University of Florence on our organic Tuscan Goji berries.
Our Antioxidant Health Tonic reduces the damaging effects of free radicals present in our body and, therefore, helps fight cell aging. The antioxidant action typical of goji berries has been paired with plants like red grapevine and blueberry which give protective guarantees and improve the microcirculation and venous system. The antioxidant effect is favored by pomegranate extract and acai berries.
Our Antioxidant Health Tonic is deep red in color, with a slight citrus aroma and a taste which is typical of red fruits.
All of our products have the following characteristics:
- Gluten Free
- No added sugars
- No yeast
- Lactose free
- No GMOs
LYCIUM BARBARUM PLANTS
In the Val di Chiana, we have selected and planted 8,200 Lycium Barbarum plants. We are among the principal European producers of Goji berry. We are in the process of converting to Demeter and, with these techniques that respect the environment, we obtain products with unique characteristics.
HECTARES OF CULTIVATION
Our land is in Val di Chiana (Arezzo). It is here, in Tuscany, that the Goji berry has found its ideal environment in which to flourish. We transform our organic Tuscan Goji berry into compotes, jams, and juices following artisan processes and use fruit and vegetables predominately from our region.
TONS OF GOJI BERRY
In 2015, we had our first, true harvest of Goji berries. Our production of Tuscan Goji berry will increase over the years to about 100 tons of the fresh product. We hope to reach this productive capacity in 2019. The Goji berry falls into the category of supplements with antioxidant properties
Goji berry, an ally to our health
The nutritional value of Tuscan Goji berry is included in the so-called super fruit, true allies of our health. They combat cell aging thanks to their high vitamin content, minerals, fibers, enzymes, antioxidants and fito-nutrients.
We are in the process of converting to Demeter
Our cultivation of Tuscan goji berry in the Val di Chiana (Arezzo) is organically certified and we are in the process of converting to Demeter. Our company has launched important research projects with Italian universities which have verified the properties of our Tuscan Goji berry.
But open to the whole world
Bio Fattorie Toscane is an all Italian capital company, founded on a project of production, processing and valorization of the Tuscan Goji berry. But our doors are open to the world and our products are valued and sought after even abroad.
