Pineapples contain a protein splitting enzyme called bromelain, which inhibits blood coagulation and improves the circulation. This is why bromelain is used as a remedy for arteriosclerosis. Cosmetic uses for pineapple include treating ageing spots and cellulitis. It also aids the digestion and combats Inflammation.
Another bonus pineapple provides us with is high levels of vitamin C – particularly beneficial to people in Europe during the winter months [1 and 2].

Dried pineapple pieces contain the same nutrients and vital substances as fresh pineapple, only in a more concentrated form. Ideal for a balanced diet.

Description:

Organic Fairtrade pineapple pieces are very fruity and aromatic in taste, slightly sour and slightly sweet. The pineapple pieces are pale to dark yellow in colour.
Dried fruits should be stored at temperatures of +2 to +6 degrees Celsius, which also slows down the darkening process. The consistency of the fruits is satisfyingly soft, making them ideal for cooking and using with other foods, since the pieces are separate and do not stick together easily.

Origin and Production:

We source our organic Fairtrade pineapples pieces from Sri Lanka. Large parts of the region are certified for organic and FAIRTRADE cultivation and are worked by the FAIRTRADE farmers living there. The farmers are members of one of the two Fairtrade groups, SOFA or MOPA. Thanks to cooperation with Fairtrade, the farmers can earn their living in a secure and independent fashion. The Fairtrade bonus helps them to finance projects such as clean drinking water, learning materials for schoolchildren and educational projects.

After harvesting, the pineapple skin and middle stem are removed and the fruit flesh is cut into pieces. The organic pineapple pieces are then gently dried and sorted by hand. The processing steps are carried out carefully by hand in extremely hygienic conditions. In this way the high quality of the dried organic pineapple is guaranteed.

Product purity:

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