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]

„Sour cherries contain vitamin A, B1, B2 and E, as well as considerable amounts of potassium and folic acid.“ [2] The cherries‘ vitamin C content can be as much as 10x that of lemons [3].

„Additionally, sour cherries are one of the few sources of natural melatonin, which regulates the sleeping/waking cycle … As a result, the sour cherry is said to have a positive effect on sleep disorders.“ [2]

When consumed regularly, sour cherry juice can reduce muscle cramps and muscle fatigue caused by excessive sporting activities, …it also seems to act preventively against osteoporosis and strokes. [2]

Cherries have an antioxidant capacity of 3356 µmol TE and sour cherries 6800 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 cherry mix is a fascinating combination of larger sized red and golden sweet cherries and the smaller dark red fruity sour cherries.
Their rich colour and full-bodied taste develop when the fruits are fully ripened and during the gentle drying process.

Origin and Production:

We source our organic Fairtrade cherries 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 cherries are washed, pitted 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.

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.
