Our prunes are 100% wild collected. Nutrients can develop particularly well in wild growing fruits.
They contain the same nutrients as fresh plums, only in a concentrated form. Plums act as an antioxidant. Antioxidants neutralise free radicals that can cause damage to the genetic make-up of our cells. When genetic material is damaged in this way, various diseases including diabetes, arteriosclerosis or rheumatism can occur. Prunes can have a laxative effect when consumed in large quantities [1 to 3].
Plums have a very high antioxidant capacity of around 6552 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 wild organic prunes are more flavourful and stronger in taste than ordinary prunes.
Their colour ranges from pale orange-brown to dark brown. A few of the wild prunes are dark or black. Their consistency is lightly soft, but less soft than normal prunes.
Prunes can have a laxative effect if eaten in large quantities.
Origin and Production:
We source our organic prunes exclusively from Uzbekistan. They ripen on wild trees there in the remote mountainous regions around Samarkand. Large parts of the region are certified for organic farming and are worked by the local organic farmers at harvesting time only. The farmers in this area have complied with organic cultivation criteria for many years and are proud of their contribution towards sustaining the natural balance.
After harvesting, the prunes are washed, pitted and cut into quarters 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 prunes are pressure treated in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.
