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.
Organic Fairtrade pineapple rings are whole small rings without fruit or pit bits. They taste very fruity, aromatic, slightly sour and slightly sweet. The baby pineapple rings 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 rings are separate and do not stick together easily.
The fruits‘ consistency is characteristically soft and the fruits are bendable. The fruit flesh is a little firmer around the area where the stem was located.
Origin and Production:
We source our organic Fairtrade pineapples rings 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 rings. The organic pineapple rings 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.
The pineapples rings are pressure treated in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.
