Vital substances:

The buds of the evergreen clove tree are full of surprises, starting with their antioxidant properties. These can provide us with additional protection, particularly during the cold winter months.

Cloves are known for their very high antioxidant capacity of 290283! µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity). The body’s defence mechanisms are strengthened after the consumption of foods rich in antioxidants, thereby counterbalancing excess production of free radicals. Dieticians recommend a daily ORAC intake of 5000 to 7000 [2].

In mediaeval times, cloves were thought to fortify the liver, stomach and brain [1].

They used to be applied as a mild pain reliever for toothache, since their essential oils can produce a slight numbing effect in the mouth, making them an alternative dental anaesthetic.

Description:

Our Cloves are very intensive, with a strongly aromatic fragrance characteristically taste. You´ll love the quality and the taste. Our organic Fairtrade Clove are gently produced from pre-sorted whole Cloves with the greatest care. Our powder is completely natural and 100% pure and ideal for processing.

Origin and Production:

We source our organic fairtrade Cloves from Sri Lanka. Fairtrade farmers‘ gardens and fields are certified for organic and FAIRTRADE cultivation. The farmers are members of one of the two Fairtrade groups, SOFA or MOPA. Thanks to cooperation with Fairtrade, the farmers can earn their living in a secure and independent fashion. The Fairtrade bonus helps them to finance projects such as clean drinking water, learning materials for schoolchildren and educational projects.

After being harvested by hand, the clove buds are gently dried and checked again.

As you can imagine, farmers in Sri Lanka still greatly value work that is done by hand, carrying out many individual processing stages in the traditional way. This provides urgently needed jobs in the region, and the product also profit from direct human contact.

The Cloves are pressure treated and controlled in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.
