vital substances: Cherries contain anthocyanins, more specifically cyanidin.
“Anthocyanins have an antioxidant effect that can be many times greater than that of vitamin C and vitamin E, at least in vitro. … In the human body, they bind free radicals and thus protect DNA, lipids and carbohydrates from damage. Other effects are also ascribed to the anthocyanins: they are said to improve vision, have an anti-inflammatory and vascular-protective effect.” 1
"Tart cherries contain vitamins A, B1, B2 and E, as well as significant amounts of potassium and folic acid." 2 The vitamin C content can even be 10 times higher than that of lemons 3.
“Furthermore, tart cherries are one of the few sources of natural melatonin. Melatonin regulates the sleep-wake cycle. … As a result, the sour cherry is said to have a positive effect on sleep disorders.” 2
Regular consumption of tart cherry juice can reduce muscle soreness and muscle fatigue caused by unusual physical exertion, ... moreover, they seem to have a preventive effect on osteoporosis and strokes. 2
Sour cherries contain an antioxidant capacity of 6800 µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacit).
By consuming foods rich in antioxidants, the defense mechanism in the body can be strengthened and an overproduction of free radicals can be balanced out. An ORAC daily requirement between 5000 and 7000 is recommended.
Description: Our organic Fairtrade sour cherries are very fruity and very sour in taste. The bright dark color is created during gentle product drying. Sour cherries have less flesh than sweet cherries.
Origin and manufacture: We source our wild organic Fairtrade sour cherries exclusively from Uzbekistan. The area is largely organic and FAIRTRADE certified and is farmed by the FAIRTRADE farmers who live there only at harvest time. The farmers belong to a large Fairtrade community, which is made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkestan Gulba und Turob Baba. They include around 1,000 individual farmers, along with their families. Thanks to the cooperation with Fairtrade, the farmers can offer their families a secure income and their children a new perspective.
After harvesting, the cherries are washed, pitted and then gently dried with the help of the sun. The drying process used is a very environmentally friendly solar drying method that is extremely gentle on the product.
