If you are a raisin lover, try our raisin sultanas in organic quality. This kind is much sweeter, juicier and also a bit bigger than the classic raisins.
You can just munch on them, sprinkle them into sweet desserts, nut mixes, sweet breakfasts or keep a bag of dried raisins as a first aid in your handbag for when you need an energy boost.
Our organic raisins come from controlled organic farming and are not sulphured. As a result, they retain all the valuable substances in their full range, without any harmful substances.
Raisins are a familiar ingredient in Czech cuisine. We know them as a traditional part of apple strudel or Christmas Eve vánočky. They also taste delicious on their own. They are dried berries of the grape(Vitis vinifera), which are particularly rich in carbohydrates. Sultana raisins are distinguished from other types by their size, yellow-green colour and distinctive sweet taste, which will delight any sweet tooth.
Our organic raisins are completely natural - they therefore retain health-giving substances, the combination of which has a beneficial effect on health, beauty and overall vitality.
What makes raisins great?
Raisins are characterised by their high carbohydrate content(glucose and fructose) and low fat content. They are therefore a rich and quick source of energy. They're great for athletes or as a healthy snack for anyone with a sweet tooth.
Raisins also contain a number of micronutrients such as vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), while minerals include iron, potassium, copper, phosphorus and manganese.
Raisins are also a source of the natural antioxidant resveratrol and contain useful fibre, which is beneficial for maintaining good digestion.
Why prefer organic dried fruit?
As with any other type of food, it is worth choosing the highest quality fruit possible. Indeed, organic quality is a guarantee that you will get minimally contaminated food. Thanks to the controlled organic farming system, organic food does not contain residues of agrochemicals, especially pesticides. Dried fruit from organic farming is not sulphured and also contains no other preservatives or added sugar.
Avoid dried fruit with added sugar
Much of the dried fruit from the supermarket is soaked in a sugar solution before drying to make it even sweeter and more appealing to the palate. Fruit sweetened in this way is, of course, a huge sugar bomb.
It has been repeatedly shown that too much refined sugar in the human diet has negative effects on health, increasing the risk of various types of disease, particularly type II diabetes. To avoid eating dried fruit with added sugar, read the information on packaged food labels carefully.
Choose dried fruit without sulphites
Most dried fruit on offer in convenience stores is sulphited. Sulphur dioxide improves the appearance of dried fruit. It is used so that the fruit retains its authentic colour and does not turn brown. This is particularly true for brightly coloured fruits such as raisins and apricots.
What are the risks of sulphured fruit? This treatment can cause stomach pain, headaches, nausea and asthma-type problems in more sensitive individuals.
Whether dried fruit is sulphurised or unsulphurised should be clear from any packaging you buy it in. Either the packaging says it is sulphurised directly or it says 'preservative E220'.
With us, you can be sure that you are getting organic dried fruit of excellent quality without any hazardous substances.
The story of our raisins
These raisins are grown on the coast of sunny Turkey, which is renowned for its excellent raisin varieties. The so-called sultanas are obtained by drying large yellow-green grapes and are therefore distinguished by their delicious sweet taste and softness. They are dried in the sun for 3-5 days, so they retain their juiciness and light colour. Afterwards, they are sometimes (depending on the residual moisture) dried for greater durability. After drying, the sultanas are washed and sorted by hand.
Our sultanas have been grown in accordance with the principles of controlled organic farming and therefore retain their nutritional richness to the fullest possible extent. They have been processed completely without additives and without added sugar. They are also not sulphurised, which means that they have not been preserved with sulphur dioxide or sulphites.
And something else interesting...
Raisins as we know them actually came about by accident - when the grapes dried out in the sun and shriveled up. People have discovered that the fruit is still very tasty. Their history goes back 4,000 years, and they were known to the ancient Romans and Egyptians. Their current name is derived from the German word 'Rosine' and the word 'raisin' comes from the Czech word 'grape'.
Sultanas have a variety of uses in the kitchen:
- They are a good helper in baking, as well as in the classic Christmas cake, apple strudel, cake or candy.
- You can also add raisins to your breakfast porridge or homemade muesli.
- The sweet berries are great for flavouring your favourite fruit salad
- Use them to make a traditional thick Indian sauce - chutney.
