Dried Inca berries (physalis) contain considerable quantities of vitamin A (important for sight, the metabolism and the skin), C (antioxidant) and B3 (niacin) and high levels of iron too .
Analyses have been made of the pits, showing that they contain omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids, phytosterols / phytostanols such as β-sitosterol, campesterol, vitamin K and beta-carotines. .
The phytosterols have a positive effect on the intestine’s cholesterol level, since they prevent it being absorbed from food.
Physalis berries are a dynamic combination of vital substances and nutrients, full of antioxidants. These can help our bodies to eliminate free radicals, which can cause a great deal of damage to the body’s cells. The berries assist our defence mechanisms – of especial benefit in the cold season. The berries are said to reduce fever and have an anti-rheumatic, diuretic effect.
Dried physalis contain the same nutrients and vital substances as fresh physalis, only in a concentrated form. This makes them an even better, and above all, healthy source of vital substances for our bodies. The natural world makes it possible for the berries to give us this nutritional bounty.
Organic Fairtrade physalis have a highly aromatic and acidic taste.
They are pale yellow to dark yellow / golden. The centre contains small soft edible seeds. The berries have a soft consistency.
Origin and Production:
We source organic Fairtrade physalis from Columbia. The berries grow at an altitude of over 2,000 metres on small plantations and mountain slopes. Large parts of the region are certified for organic and FAIRTRADE cultivation and are farmed by the FAIRTRADE farmers living there. By cooperating with Fairtrade, the farmers can provide their families with a secure income. The Fairtrade bonus is/was used to improve production methods too, as consistently high levels of quality ensure good sales. We can vouch for the quality of the product!
Physalis berries are harvested by hand when fully ripe. The leaves / sepals are removed afterwards, and the berries are washed and then gently sun dried.
The physalis 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.
