Raisins contain antioxidants, among other things. These prevent unwanted oxidation in our body. They are therefore also referred to as radial catchers. Through their contribution, the aging process of the cells is slowed down and a number of diseases can be reduced [1 and 2].
Equally interesting are the amino acids contained in raisins, above all valine, threonine, lysine, leucine and histidine [1 and 3].
Raisins contain a very high antioxidant capacity of up to 10450 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 .
The Black Beauty raisin is an ancient variety that used to be cultivated along the Silk Road for its beautiful appearance. Like so many other things, it fell into oblivion over the course of time. But a few years ago, records of this graceful grape variety were found in old books and they were planted more frequently.
The organic Fairtrade Black Beauty raisins are large, shiny black raisins. The flesh and skin are very soft, intensely sweet and fruity. The raisins are seedless.
Origin and manufacture:
We source our organic Fairtrade Black Beauty raisins exclusively from Uzbekistan. The area is largely organic and FAIRTRADE certified and is farmed by the FAIRTRADE farmers who live there. The farmers belong to a large Fairtrade community made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo. 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 Black Beauty raisins are 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.
In Austria, the Black Beauty raisins are pressure treated and laser cleaned. When it comes to printing, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests. During the subsequent multiple cleaning in the laser cleaning system, the organic raisins are individually checked to rule out any foreign contamination.
