More than just a sweet treat, our Organic Sun Dried White Mulberries are a true superfood. Our whole, sun-dried, white mulberries are nature's version of candy. A delightful alternative to raisins, mulberries are fun to eat straight from the bag. Alternatively, they can be added to oatmeal, pancakes, cookies and smoothies.
White mulberries (non-GMO) are a rich source of resveratrol which is found primarily in red wine. Mulberry fruits and leaves also contain a wide variety of vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients. Mulberry extract contains moranoline, which may delay the absorption of carbohydrates and may promote healthy glucose levels already within normal range. The anthocyanins in Mulberry are strong antioxidants and may provide cardiovascular protection, immune enhancement and stress reduction as potential health benefits.
Mulberry has long been used in traditional medicines. Among its many uses, it has been given as a tonic for kidneys, fatigue, anemia and weakness. Clinical research has shown that Mulberry might provide multiple health benefits, including encouraging healthy cellular replication and membrane stability; promoting healthy cholesterol; and controlling the digestion of carbohydrates.
We carry the white Turkish variety of organic raw mulberry which is shaken from the tree and sun-dried to optimize natural sweetness. Our whole white Turkish mulberries are 100% organic, raw, gluten-free, vegan and contain no preservatives.
