Our Organic Fairtrade Blanched Peanuts are:
- in raw food quality
- 100% pure nature
Peanuts are rich in important nutrients, above all the high protein content (the highest among nuts) and the high magnesium content (the second highest among nuts). Furthermore, the B vitamins, vitamin E, folic acid, manganese, phosphorus and zinc are very extensively contained in peanuts [1 and 3].
Among other things, peanuts are said to have a positive effect on heart disease due to the fatty acids they contain, which in turn can be closely related to a lower mortality rate.
Many polyphenols are contained in peanuts, especially in the skin . In turn, phenols are antioxidants and these have the potential to prevent cancer, inhibit inflammation, render free radicals harmless and thus protect cells .
Peanuts contain a high antioxidant capacity of 3166 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 .
Our raw blanched organic Fairtrade peanuts are a rarity, because the peanuts are usually roasted immediately, which means that their actual taste is changed and distorted very quickly. Raw peanuts taste even more intense and stronger, to slightly tart. The texture isn't much different than roasted peanuts, so there's no benefit from roasting here.
Origin and manufacture:
We source our organic Fairtrade peanuts exclusively from Uzbekistan. This is the only way we can be sure that the quality meets our high standards.
The peanuts grow in fields around Samarkand. The fields are largely organic and FAIRTRADE certified. The approximately 1000 farmers who take care of the sowing, maturing and harvest belong to one of three large Fairtrade groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkestan Gulba oder Turob Baba. Thanks to the cooperation with Fairtrade, the farmers can offer their families a secure income and their children a new perspective.
The peanuts are only plowed from the plant when they are sufficiently dry. After careful harvesting, the outer shell is removed from the peanuts and the peanuts are blanched to remove the red skin of the peanuts. Finally, the peanuts are gently dried with the help of the sun. The solar drying method used is very environmentally friendly and gentle on the product.
Arrived in Austria, the peanuts are standard depressurized. When it comes to printing, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests. Regular controls guarantee a very high quality.
