Vital substances:

Strawberries contain secondary plant substances that can be capable of inhibiting inflammation, lowering the risk of contracting diseases of the cardiovascular system or cancer, as well as positively influencing the body’s cholesterol levels [1].

Strawberries contain high levels of vitamin C [1 and 2]. Vitamin C protects the body from free radicals, strengthens connective tissue, otpimises our intake of calcium and iron and bolsters the body’s defences.

Dried strawberries contain the same nutrients and vital substances as fresh strawberries, 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.

Strawberries have a very high antioxidant capacity of  4302  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 [3].

Description:

Our delicious organic dried strawberries are grown by small groups of certified organic peasant farmers in the area of Samarkand, Uzbekistan.

There these aromatic and intensely fruity organic strawberries grown in hot and cloudless summers. The fields are situated along the ancient Silk Road as travelled by Alexander the Great and Marco Polo centuries ago.
The dry desert climate with little precipitation during the summer time provides ideal growing conditions for organic farming and the high plateau with day-night time temperature differences results in enhanced flavor formation. Only fully ripe strawberries are harvested each day during the harvest period and immediately brought to the processing factory for solar drying. It takes 1,5 kg fresh to produce 100g dried organic strawberries.

Origin and Production:

We source our organic Fairtrade strawberries 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 strawberries are cleaned, cut per hand into slices 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.
