Golden Berry or Incas Berry, has been Known as a native Peruvian fruit since the time of the incas. It was one of the preferred plants in the ¨Garden of the nobles¨ and was particulary cultivated in the ¨Sacred Valley¨ of the Incas near the Inca capital of Cusco.
By drying the fruit, the water activity index – which refers to the amount of the water in a food – is significantly lowered. As water is needed to provide the environmet for molds and other bacteria to grow. Foods with a low water activity have a much longer shelf life and are far less likely to spoil.
