Vital substances: The mulberry tree is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world. The ingredients of the mulberries are said to have valuable health effects for the human organism. Hildegard von Bingen recommended mulberries for fever, cough and sore throat, because of their supposed expectorant effect. In addition, they are said to protect the liver against inflammation3.
Mulberries contain some vitamins, including vitamin C. They also contain various phytochemicals such as essential amino acids and minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc and manganese.1-5
Mulberries are said to have a particularly high amount of antioxidants and are therefore often considered the perfect anti-aging fruit. Antioxidants switch off free radicals, which damage the genetic material in our cells. This damage to the genetic make-up can lead to diseases such as diabetes, arteriosclerosis or rheumatism.5
Dried mulberries contain the same nutrients as fresh mulberries, only in a more concentrated form. We recommend dried mulberries or similar dried fruits, especially in times when the body needs more vital substances or a sufficient supply is not always guaranteed.
Description: Our organic “Shotut” mulberries are dark and sticky, yet pleasantly soft and large (depending on the harvest). The taste is sour, fruity and very aromatic.
The black mulberries are also called Shotut in Uzbekistan. Tut is the word for the mulberry and Sho comes from the old word for Shah or King. The black dried mulberries, also known as the king's mulberries, were served as a special and very exquisite specialty at court in the past and were reserved for the king, queen and special guests.
Origin and manufacture: We source our organic black mulberries from Uzbekistan. They mature there on bushes. Large areas of the area are certified organic and are only cultivated for harvest by the local organic FAIRTRADE farmers.
The mulberries are treated like Fairtrade products by the Fairtrade community, which consists of the Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo groups. There are currently no standards after which the mulberries can be certified by FAIRTRADE International.
Therefore, the mulberries meet the common Fairtrade requirements, but cannot receive the logo and the Fairtrade farmers do not receive any additional bonus for their additional work. Here you can tell that the Fairtrade idea has passed into the blood and is lived, even without money.
The mulberries are harvested by hand, but only when the berries are fully ripe. After the harvest, they are carefully washed 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.
The mulberries are pressure treated in Austria. With pressure removal, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests.
