The superfood of 2014

What a gojiberry that swims. The 2014 superfood has already appeared: it's buffaloberry. Consumed by the North American Indians, the fruit is rich in lycopene and phenolic antioxidants. But what is this?

Soon you will hear about the new fashion food. We're talking about buffaloberry. This little bittersweet red berry grows wild amidst the vegetation of the US states of North and South Dakota. For hundreds of years, it has been part of the diet of the North American Indians.

But it is the discoveries revealed by the Journal of Food Science which suggest that their commercial production should increase. The “new” fruit (shepherdia argentea) contains extremely high levels of lycopene, the red-colored antioxidant commonly associated with tomatoes. Its distinctive flavor is the result of high levels of phenolic antioxidants, proven to be effective in slowing down cell aging.

Access to buffaloberry-based products is still difficult. Its production is artisanal and limited, more focused on the subsistence of the inhabitants of the indigenous reserves. But it is only a matter of time before we can soon find it easily on our shelves.

One of buffaloberry's biggest fans are the bears. As we have seen in the previous article, although very cute, the health of these animals is always up to date.
