Vital substances:

Cherries contain anthocyanins, specifically, the substance cyanidin.

„Anthocyanins have an antioxidant effect that can exceed the benefits provided by vitamin C and vitamin E by a multiple factor, at least in vitro. … They bind free radicals in the body, protecting DNA, lipids and carbohydrates from damage. More positive effects ascribed to anthocyanins: they are said to improve the sight, inhibit inflammation and protect the vessels.“ [1]

Cherries have an antioxidant capacity of around 3356 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 [2].

Description:

Our organic Fairtrade hunza cherries are juicy, very large cherries with lots of fruit flesh and an intense fruity, sweet taste. They are dark red to black in colour.

Origin and Production:

We source our organic Fairtrade hunza cherries from the northern mountain regions of Pakistan. The climate is harsh and challenging – life is hard. The large areas of land used for organic cultivation offer the organic farmers there an alternative, and positive prospects. Fairtrade FLO certification gives farmers an additional payment that is used in the villages to educate children or for other community social projects.

After harvesting, the hunza cherries are washed, pitted and dried using solar energy.

Product purity:

The cherries 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 cherries are checked individually to make sure they contain no impurities such as pits/ pit parts.

Organic ingredients: Hunza cherries dried° - ° Fairtrade certified and sourced from Fairtrade producers. Total 100%.
