3 reasons our products are unique/better than others on the market
We pride ourselves on not only producing amazing tasting dried fruits, but also the fact that we don’t add any extras in:
1. No sulphur in Gin Gin & Dry dried fruits
Sulphur is on many dried fruits sold in Australia. There are startling reasons why sulphur is not good for your system. Australian standards allow 3000 ppm on sulphur in dried fruits. This unbelievably is above the recommended rate by the World Health Organisation.
Sulphur is linked to asthma, breathing difficulties and allergies. Many people can be extremely sensitive to sulphur. Find out more here.
2. No added sugars in Gin Gin & Dry dried fruits
A lot of dried fruits have a lot of cane sugar added and are sometimes known as “candied”. Trying to make it sweeter is not necessary especially when you start with good fruit, adding sugar can dull down the flavour.
Added sugar has repeatedly been shown to have harmful effects on health, increasing the risk of obesity, heart disease and even cancer. To avoid dried fruit that contains added sugar, it is very important to read the ingredients and nutrition information found on the package.
3. They are Australian grown.
There are a lot of dried fruits on the market that are imported. We only use Australian grown products in our Gin Gin & Dry range.
Firstly, you are supporting growers in Australia by giving them extra for their fruits that are not the right shape, size or if there is an oversupply – fruits that are perfect for Gin Gin & Dry products.
Secondly, knowing that it is Australian fruit you are 100% sure of the product it is. In Australia, we are subject to very stringent labelling and processing laws and we state what we mean. All our growers have the same stringent processes and audit authorities and the produce is grown in a very clean, green environment.
Our product is 100% pure Australian, with no sugar or sulphur added and you can trust that 100%.
Where the fruit is sourced
At Gin Gin and Dry we source fruit from growers as close to us as we can. Nearly all of it comes from growers in Queensland with some early season mangos coming from the Northern Territory.
Getting fruits and processing them when they are in season is best to help the farmers find a home for fruit that they cannot otherwise sell. With all the different seasons of the fruits (as can be seen on the table below), it means that we can work all year round.
We know most of our growers well and have been getting their fruit from them for many years.
|Mangos||Darwin, Georgetown, Townsville, Mareeba, Rockhampton, Ayr, Gin Gin, Bundaberg||NT & Qld||Oct-March|
