Vital substances: Regular consumption of almonds can have a positive effect on our health. Because almonds have been shown to lower the cholesterol level in the blood with their polyunsaturated fatty acids, stabilize / lower blood pressure and inhibit inflammatory reactions.
Almonds are also characterized by a high content of B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium, phosphorus and manganese. Vitamin E is an antioxidant. It protects our body from harmful oxidations, from free radicals and it stabilizes the cell membranes. Furthermore, almonds help supply the body with calcium, iron, potassium and zinc.1-3
Almonds are therefore ideal for a balanced, healthy diet.
Almonds contain a very high antioxidant capacity of 4454 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.4
Description: The organic Fairtrade almonds used come from distant forests, where hardly anyone gets lost. This seclusion allows the almonds to mature in peace and develop their full potential. You can taste this difference, because wild almonds taste more intense and also a little bit like wild nature. It is generally assumed that wild almonds have a better composition of nutrients and vital substances than normal, ripened almonds. Above all, however, they come very close to the original quality of the almonds.
You can recognize our wild almonds by the fact that they are not standardized. As in pure nature, no almond is like another, some are larger, some small, some thicker and others thin. Biodiversity as we would like it to be.
Origin: We source our organic Fairtrade almonds exclusively from Uzbekistan. Only from there can we be sure that the quality will meet our high standards.
The almonds ripen on remote trees in the mountainous regions around Samarkand. The area is largely organic and FAIRTRADE certified. The 1000 or so farmers who work the area at harvest time belong to one of three large Fairtrade groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba or Turob Bobo. Thanks to the cooperation with Fairtrade, the farmers can offer their families a secure income and their children a new perspective.
The Fairtrade sugar used comes from Paraguay. By buying this organic Fairtrade product, you are also supporting the smallholders of the “Cooperativa El Arroyense” and “Cooperativa Montillo” in Paraguay. The amalgamation of these groups enables the individual farmers to have their sugar cane processed and thus sold.
Manufacturing: After the careful harvest, the almonds are pitted and the actual kernel is 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.
Finally, the sugar almonds are processed into snow-white almonds according to old tradition. The sugar is so carefully combined with the almonds that you might think white snow covers the almonds.
Organic ingredients: Almonds ° (90%), sugar (10%). ° FAIRTRADE certified and grown by Fairtrade producers. Total Fairtrade share: 100%.Swell:
