Our organic figs are:
• 100% purely natural
• base food
• contain nutrients
• without preserving agents
• without any acidifiers or sweetener
• without colouring agents or other unnatural additives
Dried fig contains the same nutrients as fresh one, in a concentrated form. That’s why dried fruits are indispensable for a balanced diet.
Dried figs contain magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, iron and B vitamins. Figs are very rich in fibre and ensure a good acid-base balance, as they are one of the base foods [1 to 3].
Figs have been a symbol of prosperity and peace for thousands of years. People in Mediterranean lands have always enjoyed fresh figs, but eat them dried too. Romans, Greeks and Egyptians all had a special relationship to this fruit.
It’s easy to understand why the unique taste of figs is so popular, because figs aren’t just sweet – they are also very aromatic, fruity and highly nutritious.
Our extra large figs range from beige to pale or dark brown in colour. Their consistency is crisp – only the stem end on top of the fig is hard and not really meant for consumption. They contain small, soft edible pit pieces, giving the fig a crunchy texture.
Some of the natural sugars in the fig may come to the surface and crystalise. This is normal and is due to the figs’ high sugar content.
Origin and Production:
We source our figs from Turkey, where most of the global fig crop is grown. Figs are a central element of Turkish culture. Organic figs ripen in the mountainous regions around 150 km distant from the town of Izmir. The region enjoys excellent climatic conditions and is separate from surrounding fields to a large degree so that these have no or a minimal effect on the fig trees. This is reflected in the quality and purity of the fruits.
After harvesting, the figs are checked for quality. In the next processing step, the fruits are gently sun-dried.
The figs are in a standard procedure pressure treated in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.
