Organic White Mulberries


General Description

Cultivated 4,000 year ago on the silk roads of Afro-Eurasia, these protein-packed white mulberries were once harvested solely for their leaves which served as food for silk worms.

These sweet mulberries are not only packed with flavour but they are also rich in iron, calcium, vitamin C, fibre and protein. Mulberries are one of the rare foods that contain Resveratrol, the anti-aging nutrient that is commonly associated with the skin of red grapes that is used in the making of wine. Traditional Chinese medicine also uses mulberries to treat gray hairs, to invigorate blood cells and to treat constipation and diabetes.

Slowly sundried for optimal flavour and aroma, this fruit resembles the flavour of dried figs. Mulberrries are an excellent substitute for raisins in granolas, trail mix, smoothies, muffins, cakes, cookies and much, much more.

History

Originally from China, the mulberries were grown to include feeding silkworms used for the commercial production of silk for over 4000 years. The mulberry was then largely distributed in subtropical regions.
