Dried raisins contain the same nutrients as fresh grapes, in a concentrated form. Pomegranate juice is a great source of antioxidants and vitamins.

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.

„Pomegranates contain fairly high levels of flavonoids - anthocyanins, querticin and polyphenols – above all ellagitannins such as punicalagins, ellagic acid and gallic acid. These are rich in potassium and provide us with vitamin C, calcium and iron, amongst other substances“[4].
A real superfruit!

Raisins have a very high antioxidant capacity of 10450 and pomegranate juice 2681 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 pomaisins are raisins that have been dipped in pomegranate juice. The resulting flavour is incomparable – with a sourishly fruity, yet sweet aroma. The pomaisins are a little sticky, but do not drip. They are light to dark brown in colour. The pomegranate juice makes the fruit flesh and skin even softer.

Dried raisins contain the same nutrients as fresh grapes, in a concentrated form. Pomegranate juice is a great source of antioxidants and vitamins. That’s why dried fruits are indispensable for a balanced diet.

Origin and Production:
We source our organic Fairtrade pomaisins 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.

After drying, the raisins are dipped in pomegranate juice and then briefly dried again

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