Dried apricots contain the same nutrients as fresh apricots, in a concentrated form. Apricots are known for their high levels of vitamin A, vitamin C, iron and potassium [1 and 2].
Apricots have a very high antioxidant capacity of 3234 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 .
Our organic Fairtrade apricot halves taste like fresh apricots. The flavour is very intensive and strong, they are slightly sour and aromatic. They are ideal as a cooking ingredient.
Origin and Production:
We source our organic Fairtrade apricots exclusively from Uzbekistan/ Samarkand, enabling us to guarantee our high quality standards.
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 apricots are washed, pitted, cut into halves and shock frozen so that their appearance and shape is retained.
