Dried figs contain magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron and B vitamins. Figs are very high-fiber fruits and they ensure a good acid-base balance because they are among the alkaline foods [1 to 3].Dried figs contain an antioxidant capacity of 3383 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 figs range in color from beige to light or dark brown. They are very soft in consistency, only the end of the stem, which is at the top of the fig, is hard and not necessarily intended for consumption. Inside are small, soft, edible core parts that give the fig a crunchy effect.It can happen that figs lose their sugar. This is completely normal and is related to the high sugar content.
The fig has stood for prosperity and peace for thousands of years. The countries in the Mediterranean region have valued them for ages, both fresh and dried. Whether Romans, Greeks or Egyptians, they all had a special connection to this fruit.
This is also very obvious with this unique taste, because figs are not only sweet, but also very aromatic, fruity and very nutritious. Visually, dried figs take some getting used to, in contrast to other dried fruits.
Origin, natural features and production:
We source our figs from Turkey, the country where most figs are harvested in the world. Figs are an integral part of Turkish culture. The organic figs ripen in the mountains, about 150 km from the city of Izmir. In this region there are very good climatic conditions and the region is largely isolated, so that the surrounding fields have little or no influence on the trees. This is reflected in the quality and purity.
After the harvest, the figs are checked for quality and gently dried with the help of the sun. In Austria, a pressure disinfestation of the figs follows. When it comes to printing, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests.
