• very nutritious
• carefully processed

• without preserving agents
• without any sweetener
• without colouring agents or other unnatural additives

Dates are also known as the „bread of the desert“. They are much prized, since they are easily digestible, and contain high levels of vitamins and minerals. Their sugar content supplies fast energy. Dates are a must for desert travellers, and also for Europeans interested in healthy eating.

Dates also have high levels of magnesium, B vitamins and fibre – good news for our bowels! In contrast, the glycaemic index is very low [1 to 3].

Dried dates contain the same nutrients as fresh dates, in a concentrated form. That’s why dried fruits are indispensable for a balanced diet.

Description:

Our organic Fairtrade date paste is a soft, compact and very sweet mass. Its colour is dark on the outside and lighter inside, where less oxygen can penetrate. Date paste normally becomes darker with time. It is best stored at temperatures between +2 and +6 degrees Celsius, as this slows down the darkening process and protects the paste from insects attracted by the dates’ sweetness.

Origin and Production:

We source our organic Fairtrade date paste exclusively from Tunisia. It is particularly important for Tunisia to produce Fairtrade products in the face of difficult economic and political conditions. The country is oriented on tourism and the extremely high levels of water consumption it requires. This contrasts with the situation of small farming families endeavouring to maintain traditional methods of agriculture and healthy attitudes to nature and people. Cooperation with FAIRTRADE provides farmers and their families with a secure income and gives their children new prospects.

Harvesting the dates or date bunches is a very risky undertaking from a European’s perspective, as the fruits are cut off by hand high up in the date trees. The dates are already completely dried. Mother nature completes this task when the dates are still on the tree.
Detaching the dates from the date bunch, sorting and pitting are also carried out manually. A mass / paste is eventually produced from the whole dates.

Product purity:

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