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 .
Our organic Fairtrade sultanas Uzbek raisins are medium sized and do not contain pips. They are light to dark dullish brown in colour. The fruit flesh and skin are very soft. Dried raisins contain the same nutrients as fresh grapes, in a concentrated form.
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.
The raisins are pressure treated and laser cleaned in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests. When undergoing several rounds of cleansing in the laser cleaning facility afterwards, the organic raisins are checked individually to make sure they contain no impurities.
