Incan berries are native to Amazonian regions of South America, where they have been a traditional source of food and medicine for centuries. Indeed, these small, yellow/orange berries, which are slightly larger than raisins, pack a mighty punch, and contain an impressive selection of valuable nutrients, including vegetable protein, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12 and C, pectin, bioflavonoids, phosphorus and a small amount of melatonin. And Incan berries, which are gently sun-dried once fully ripe, are literally crammed with crunchy, lemon-flavoured seeds that lend them a surprisingly delicious, sweet and sour flavour.
