Vital substances: Dates will do that too "The bread of the desert" called. They are considered to be very valuable because they are easily digestible, vitamin and mineral-rich fruits, which with their sugar content quickly provide energy. A must for every desert traveler, but also for every nutrition-conscious European. In addition, dates are very rich in magnesium, B vitamins and fiber, which our intestines really enjoy. The glycemic index, however, is very low.1,2 Dried dates contain an antioxidant capacity of 3895 µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity). By consuming foods rich in antioxidants, the body's defense mechanism can be strengthened and an overproduction of free radicals can be balanced out. An ORAC daily requirement between 5000 and 7000 is recommended. 3
Description: Our organic Fairtrade date paste is a soft, compact and very sweet mass. The color is dark on the outside and inside, where less oxygen gets to, the mass is lighter. The date paste usually darkens. Storage between +2 and +6 degrees is highly recommended, this slows down the color change and protects against unwanted insects, because they are often attracted by the sweetness.
Origin and manufacture: We source our organic Fairtrade date paste exclusively from Tunisia. For Tunisia, in addition to the difficult economic and political situation, it is particularly important to produce Fairtrade products. The country is characterized by tourism and the associated extremely high water consumption. On the other hand, there are small farming families who fight for traditional agriculture and a healthy approach to nature and people. The cooperation with FAIRTRADE enables the farmers and their families a secure income and the children new perspectives. The harvest of the date or the date plants is very daring, from a European point of view, because the cutting is done by hand, high up in the date trees. The date is already completely dried. Nature does this work when the dates are still hanging on the trees. Likewise, removing the date from the perennial, sorting and pitting is done by hand. A mass / paste is then made from the whole dates. The dates are pressure treated in Austria. With pressure removal, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests.
