How many goji berries per day?

We often wonder “How many dried goji berries per day?”

We at Nuturally have the answer.

A portion of 40g is the recommended daily amount for a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

A study published in the England Journal of Medicine* has shown that eating 40g of dried fruit a day can lead to a longer life expectancy. The benefits are many and range from reducing food waste to saving money but, according to the authors of the study in the New England Journal of Medicine "the most obvious benefit is a 29% decrease in cardiovascular mortality, followed by an 11% reduction in cancer mortality".

How many goji berries are to be eaten if you don’t have a scale at hand?

In those cases, the palm of the hand becomes the 'scale' when eating out and not wanting to overdo the calories. In fact, in the palm of your hand you will have the ideal portion of berries to eat per day.

A handful of goji berries corresponds to a portion of between 185 and 190 pieces.

According to the British Nutrition Foundation's 'Find Your Balance' guide, using your hands to easily estimate the portions of food you should eat is an intuitive and, literally, 'hands-on' method for a long and healthy life. But the hand is not the only unit of measurement identified by the BNF, who also recommend using your fist and thumb.

Of course, it is good to bear in mind that each person has their own specific nutritional needs depending on their constitution, age, gender, level of physical activity, etc. and, for this reason, the portions of food vary according to individual needs. In fact, the study reveals that the hand method is proportionally applicable because a larger person, with larger hands, will automatically consume larger portions than smaller people, with smaller hands.
