Velvety, rich and sweet, our organic figs are a wonderful snack right out of the bag. Rich in fibre, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals such as iron and potassium, they’re also a really great way to get your daily dose of calcium!
Prana imports certified organic raw materials whose treatment with pesticides is not an accepted practice for our certification. Dried figs, whether organic or conventional, can sometimes contain larvae of a small insect called blastophage. By its nature, the fig which is botanically a flower, is naturally pollinated only by the blastophage. This phenomenon is completely natural and necessary for the reproduction of figs. As for mold, unfortunately as we cannot open each fig, it is normal to find some that are moldy, once again because of the nature of the fruit and the fact that we add no preservatives in our products.
Our establishments are certified SQF Level 2, a certification that ensures you a very rigorous quality assurance control. That said, unfortunately, no device can detect the presence of insects inside the fig. It is only by opening the fruit that we can detect the presence of these and obviously we cannot pack figs already open.
Because of higher summer temperatures, we recommend you keep your dried fruit in the fridge to avoid speeding up the fermentation process.
Can be preserved in a cool, dry cupboard protected from light and humidity for up to 10 months.
May contain trace of nuts, soy and sesame ingredients.
