Vital substances:

The mulberry is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world. The substances contained in mulberries are reputed to have health-giving properties for the human organism. Hildegard von Bingen recommended mulberries in cases of high temperatures, coughs and sore throats due to their alleged capacity to dissolve mucus. They are also said to protect the liver from inflammation [3].

Mulberries contain several vitamins, including vitamin C, and various secondary plant substances, such as essential amino acids, minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc and maganese [1 to 5].

Another health benefit accredited to mulberries is their antioxidant content, giving them their reputation as the perfect anti-ageing fruit. Antioxidants neutralise free radicals that can damage the genetic make-up of our cells. When genetic material is damaged in this way, diseases such as diabetes, arteriosclerosis or rheumatism can occur [5].

Description:

The mulberries are also called shotut in Uzbekistan. Tut means mulberry and sho is derived from the old word for shah, or king. In times past, dried black mulberries, known as the king of mulberries, were served at court as a supremely exquisite speciality, reserved solely for the king, queen and esteemed guests.

Our shotut“ organic mulberries pieces with rice flour have a sourishly fruity and highly aromatic fruity  taste. You can taste the rice flour, but the flavour is very neutral. The rice flour cannot be tasted at all in chocolate or bars. The rice flour can be eaten raw, so our mulberries pieces can be used as they are without any further processing. The mulberries pieces are of a pourable consistency, and are soft in texture.

Origin and Production:

We source our organic mulberries exclusively from Uzbekistan. Large parts of the region are certified for organic products, and are cultivated by the farmers living there. The farmers are part of a large community made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo. 1,000 farmers and their families belong to the community.

Currently there are no standards covering international FAIRTRADE certification for mulberries. The mulberries comply with the usual Fairtrade requirements, but cannot bear the logo.  The Fairtrade famers do not receive an extra bonus for the additional work they do.  The Fairtrade concept has become second nature and is a part of life, even if the monetary rewards are less.

Our mulberries are harvested by hand when the berries are fully ripe. After harvesting, they are carefully washed and 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.

Organic rice used in the flour is from Thailand or India, and is ground fresh into flour in our facilities.

Product purity:

The mulberries and the rice flour are pressure treated in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.

Final processing is also carried out in Austria complying with the highest quality standards.
