Straight Dried Fruit

Nothing added, except richness and flavour.

Sanford straight dried fruits are produced from carefully selected fresh fruits, grown in all parts of Turkey, and picked up at perfect ripeness during their particular harvest season. Fruits are individually checked, cleaned, sorted and gently dried to a desired moisture level in state-of-the-art ovens. The result is a condensed pure fruit of a remarkable quality with water removed and nothing added.

Sour Cherries or Prunus Cerasus (named after Giresun, Turkey) are full of compounds that stave off inflammation, have antiviral and antibacterial properties, help support heart health, and even fight cancer. Cherries have one of the highest amounts of antioxidants of any food, boast antiviral and antibacterial properties, and, with the compounds quercetin and ellagic acid, slow the growth of and kill cancer cells without damaging healthy ones. Anthocyanin is one of the most powerful compounds in sour cherry because it does so many good things for the body. Research has found that this little flavonoid is responsible for not just the red color of the fruit, but also for reducing inflammation and uric acid levels in the blood to prevent gout, as well as the risk of heart attack, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Sour cherries can be consumed as a snack on its own, included into a mix or can be used as an ingredient.
