The advantages of dried banana/physalis
A deciding factor of gently dried fruits is their high nutrient content. While bananas and physalis will lose some of their volume during the drying process, they loose hardly any of their vital nutrients.
The patented Päx drying process also means a longer shelf life for our banana/physalis Crunchy Fruits – and they won’t get soft or sticky. Dried fruit – as opposed to fresh fruit – should not become soft and mushy and the resealable packaging keeps them fresh and ready whenever you are.
Sweet banana meets sour physalis. Our banana/physalis Crunchy Fruits have wonderfully harmonised flavours. A brand new taste sensation. Our dried fruits are not just fruity, sweet and sour, but also uniquely crunchy.
Our bananas are, as opposed to traditional dried bananas, not deep-fried – which means they won’t end up being rock hard, like many other products. What’s more, they contain no added sugar, honey or other sweeteners. We insist on purely organic quality, which is why we don’t treat our dried fruit with sulphur or any other chemicals.
