Vital substances:

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

Some of the substances contained in raisins are called antioxidants, which prevent unwanted oxidation from taking place in our bodies. This is why they are also known as free radical scavengers. Their action slows down the cells‘ ageing process, and reduces the effects of a number of diseases [1 and 3].

The amino acids active in raisins, in particular valine, threonine, lysine, leucine and histidine [1 and 2] are also beneficial to health.

Raisins have a very high antioxidant capacity of 10450 µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity).

The body’s defence mechanisms are strengthened by foods rich in antioxidants, and this helps to neutralise excessive production of free radicals. The recommended ORAC daily requirement is between 5000 and 7000 [4].

Description:

Our organic Fairtrade raisin mix includes lots of different types of raisins, everything is there – from black to shimmering green and brown. The mix was created especially for our raisin fans. The raisins have different flavours, some are stronger tasting and aromatic whilst others are sweeter and softer. The raisins are of various sizes, adding to the variety. They do not have pips. The fruit flesh is very soft.

Origin and Production:

We source our organic Fairtrade raisins exclusively from Uzbekistan. Large parts of the region are certified for organic and FAIRTRADE products, and are cultivated by the FAIRTRADE farmers living there. The farmers are part of a large Fairtrade community made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo.
1,000 farmers and their families belong to the community. By working with Fairtrade, the farmers can provide their families with a secure income and offer their children new opportunities.

After harvesting, the raisins are washed and then gently dried using solar energy. The drying process is very eco-friendly, using a solar drying method that has a minimal impact on the product.
