Organic Apricots

Organic Apricots

Apricots have found their way around the world from conquest and discovery to land in the hands of many consumers today. Indigo Herbs offers an organic un-sulphured dried apricot which is totally free from any preservatives. Sulphured apricots are usually more acidic, a brighter orange colour and are the Apricots commonly found in the marketplace. Indigo Herbs unsulphured Organic Whole Apricots are a great addition to our full packed wholefoods range and are highly recommended.

The native land of the Apricot is in much dispute even though the general consensus is that this fruit came from Armenia as the Latin name suggests. At an archaeological site in Armenia apricot seeds were found and dated to be from a time just before the Bronze Age. Some have speculated that this fruit could have originally come from China or India in around 3,000 BC. It was thought that Alexander the Great introduced Apricots to Greece and the Roman General Lucullus imported the trees from Armenia into Italy. There is evidence that this fruit was all over the Middle East in ancient Persia and Iran also. Later, English settlers and Spanish missionaries spread the fruit even further into the new worlds where it settled and become a staple fruit crop.

The Apricot is a small tree that can grow to height of about 11 meters. It has white/pink flowers and blooms in spring before new leaves set. The leaves are oval and have pointed tips with a slightly serrated margin. In late summer the fruits (or drupe) ripen and can be either yellow or orange, smooth or with a furry exterior. The interior of the fruit is usually hard and moist without much juice with a grainy texture.

High in Vitamin A

Vitamin A is the name given to a group of fat-soluble antioxidant compounds.  Two different types of vitamin A are found in the diet; “preformed vitamin A” (also referred to as retinol or retinal) is found in animal products and “pro-vitamin A” is found in plant based foods - the most common type being beta-carotene.  It was the first fat soluble vitamin to be recognised and is sometimes referred to as the “anti-infective” vitamin due to its enhancement of the body’s immunity against infections by increasing the lymphatic responses against disease forming antigens.  It keeps the mucous membranes moist that line the mouth, respiratory passage and urinary tract and enhances the activity of white blood cells. 

Known as retinol because it produces the pigments in the retina in the eye, it enables your eyes to adjust to light changes, keeps the eyes moist and improves night vision.  It can also significantly reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration.  Vitamin A helps to keep your body free from free radicals and toxins which might cause damage to your skin, helping to keep it soft and supple by ensuring moisture retention.  Vitamin A deficiency can impair iron metabolism which can lead to anaemia despite adequate iron intake.  Playing an important role in cells’ ability to adapt to perform specific functions in larger organs, the richest sources of preformed vitamin A are found in liver, kidney, butter and whole milk, whereas good sources of pro-vitamin A are dark green leafy vegetables and yellow-orange vegetables such as sweet potatoes and carrots.

Vitamin A contributes to:

·         normal iron metabolism

·         the maintenance of normal mucous membranes

·         the maintenance of normal skin

·         the maintenance of normal vision

·         the normal function of the immune system

·         Vitamin A has a role in the process of cell specialisation

Manufacture Process

Unlike many Apricots found in the market place, these Apricots have not been treated with sulphur dioxide to keep their colour. Indigo Herbs Organic unsulphured Whole Apricots are grown under strict organic conditions. The whole process from picking to packing is done in a traditional sense where each step is done by hand. After being handpicked the Apricots are laid out in the sun to be dried. Experts tend the fruit until they have the right moisture content to be tested and cleaned. Testing ensures there are no pollutants or heavy metals present. No herbicides or pesticides were used in the cultivation of these Apricot trees and all fruit comes to you in perfect condition.
