Pomegranates are said to positively influence a range of diseases, for example, cancer and disorders of the cardiovascular system. Researchers have discovered that pomegranates are rich in phytoestrogens, and particularly in oestrone. Oestrone is a mildly effective oestrogene similar to the female sex hormone.
The pomegranate is also rich in vitamin A, C, potassium and antioxidants. The fruit contains high levels of secondary plant substances, such as polyphenols (flavonoids, tannins).
Pomegranates can stimulate the body, which is particularly beneficial in cases of chronic fatigue, listlessness, infections and inflammation [1 to 4].
Our Varganza pomegranate segments are an attractive Purple colour. During the drying process, the segments become less moist, leaving the seeds coated with fruit skin. The seeds are crunchy and edible. The surrounding fruit flesh, including the skin, gives the seeds their aromatic, characteristically fruity taste.
The pomegranate is the subject of legends: Said to have triggered the Trojan War, in Christian culture it symbolises the fertility of Mary, mother of Jesus. It is regarded as a symbol of life – the Ancient Egyptians placed pomegranates in mummies‘ tombs. The pomegranate’s reputation as an aphrodisiac has persisted to the present day, and it is an ingredient in many love potions.
Dried pomegranates contain the same nutrients as fresh pomegranates, in a concentrated form. That’s why dried fruits are indispensable for a balanced diet.
Origin and Production:
We source our organic Fairtrade pomegranates 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, a special procedure is used to remove the seeds from the hard skin 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.
The pomegranates are pressure treated in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.
