Source and Processing
Navitas Naturals Mulberries are organically grown in the fertile plains of Turkey, where they have been sustainably harvested for thousands of years. In keeping with tradition, the fruit is shaken from the tree and premium berries are selected. Then, the berries are naturally sun-dried to an ideal moisture level below 15% to obtain perfect texture. Navitas Naturals offers whole white Turkish mulberries that are 100% organic, raw, kosher, gluten-free, vegan, and contain no preservatives.
Organically Sweet Turkish Gem
Turkish mulberries have been considered a precious fruit for thousands of years due to their incredible taste. A bit like a dried fig in flavor and chewy crunch, these sweet treats are an amazing snack on their own, and are also a special substitute for raisins in granola, pancakes, smoothies, and baked goods. Apart from their great taste, Navitas Naturals Mulberries offer an incredible display of nutrition as well: including high levels of iron, calcium, vitamin C, protein, and fiber. Plus, as one of the few natural foods containing Resveratrol (the "anti-aging" component in red wine grapes), mulberries serve as a true power food.
Ancient Turkish Delight
Mulberry trees originally came over on the Silk Road from China to Turkey thousands of years ago. As one of the precious goods for trade, their leaves served as food for silk worms, and their delicious berries enjoyed as an exotic and divine treat. Today, the fruit is still an important part of the Turkish cultural tapestry, and the berry's unique flavor is enjoyed by people around the world. Navitas Naturals offers the white Turkish variety of mulberry, which is shaken from the tree and sun-dried to optimize natural sweetness.
The Power of Mulberries
More than just a sweet treat, Navitas Naturals Mulberries are a true superfood. They are one of the few fruits to be considered a protein source -- boasting a respectable 3 grams of protein per ounce - and are an excellent source of iron, calcium, vitamin C, and fiber. Mulberries also contain a high concentration of Resveratrol, an antioxidant compound that combats free-radical damage. Recent studies have shown that regular consumption of this special antioxidant helps promote a healthy heart and longevity.
Chewy and soft with a fig-like crunch, our whole, sun-dried, white mulberries are nature's version of candy. A delightful alternative to raisins, it's easy to take pleasure in eating mulberries straight from the bag. Alternatively, add this sweet superfood to oatmeal, pancakes, cookies, or smoothies.
