We bring to you our 100% organic APRICOTS right from the hilly regions of ladakh from the
village of Takmachik located in the Leh district of Jammu and Kashmir.!!
With help from the Ladakh Environment and Health Organization(LEHO), we travelled 112 km west of the district headquarters Leh by car and reached our destination THE TAKAMACHIK VILLAGE. Organizing a workshop with the farmers, we educated and encouraged them to use organic farming methods to produce our 100% organic apricots.It was their overwhelming support and commitment towards our initiative for organic farming that won us the United Nations Food and Agricultre Organization (UN FAO) Save Food support !!
Relatives to peaches, apricots are small, golden orange fruits, with velvety skin and flesh, not too juicy but definitely smooth and sweet. Some describe their flavor as almost musky, with a faint tartness that lies somewhere between a peach and a plum. Although dried and canned apricots are available year-round, fresh apricots with a plentiful supply of vitamin C.
Here we are with the most useful benefits of having this wonder dried fruit. :-
1.Protection Against Free Radical Damage
Organic Apricots contain a number of potent antioxidants. We rank the apricot as a good source of both vitamin A (from beta-carotene) and vitamin C. Diets rich in flavonoids and the other types of polyphenols found in apricots have been linked to reductions in heart disease in humans.
2.Protect Your Eyesight
Organic Apricots are rich in the carotenoids and xanthophylls, nutrients that researchers believe may help protect eyesight from aging-related damage.This benefit is found in people who eat three or more servings of fruit each day.
3.Health benefits of apricots
Low in calories and a good source of fiber – One organic apricot has only 17 calories, and because they’re high in fiber, they help you feel full, longer. What a great snack! Fiber can help with digestive issues including preventing constipation, and can help reduce cholesterol levels.
