Vital substances: The buds of the evergreen clove tree are full of surprises. First of all, their antioxidant properties should be mentioned. This gives us additional protection, which we can use especially during the winter months.
Cloves are known for their really high antioxidant capacity of 290283! 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.2
It continues with a strengthening function for the liver, stomach and brain, it was believed in the Middle Ages.1
Cloves are also very popular as a mild pain reliever when you have a toothache. It is the essential oils contained in it that can also create a slightly numbing feeling in the mouth and were therefore once used as an alternative anesthetic by the dentist.
Description: Our organic cloves have a fine oil film on the surface, which reveals their very good quality. Only when this is still present do the cloves still contain their essential oils, which in turn are essential for their taste.
Due to the organic cultivation method, our cloves not only have many important ingredients, but also a fundamentally sustainable and fair idea. Even if it is “only” a spice, we assume that how the food is handled has a very decisive influence on the quality of the products.
Origin and manufacture: We source our organic fair trade cloves from Sri Lanka. The growing areas are largely organic and FAIRTRADE certified and are cultivated by the FAIRTRADE farmers who live there. The farmers belong to one of the two fair trade groups SOFA or MOPA. Thanks to the cooperation with Fairtrade, the farmers can earn their livelihood securely and independently. The Fairtrade Premium can be used to pay for projects such as clean drinking water, school materials for the children and educational projects.
After the manual harvest, the clove buds are gently dried and checked again. Many work steps are traditionally carried out exclusively by hand.
In Austria our cloves are pressure treated and checked again several times. With pressure removal, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests.
