Dried unsalted peppers organic
Peppers, like tomatoes, are also a member of the nightshade family. Did you know that botanically speaking, peppers are berries and not pods as most people think? The fruit is differentiated by colour, size and pungency. The variety of colours of the peppers indicates the respective degree of ripeness. Green peppers are still unripe, yellow to orange peppers are semi-ripe and red peppers have reached full ripeness.
Our dried peppers are ripe, red and sweet peppers. They are soft and taste unchanged like peppers thanks to the gentle drying process.

Advantages of our dried vegetables
Our dried peppers are air-dried and exclusively from controlled organic cultivation. The drying process gives the fruits a much longer shelf life. Often, the addition of sulphur to dried fruits prevents them from becoming visually unsightly because the sulphur helps preserve the bright colour of their flesh. Sulphurated fruits can cause intolerances or allergic reactions in sensitive people. However, our peppers are completely unsulphurated and without any additives, which is why the colour of the flesh may change slightly. This is absolutely not a sign of poor quality, but merely a sign that it is a 100% natural fruit.
