Tart Cherries

Unique taste. Unique effect.

Tart Cherries

Tart cherries are becoming more and more popular, because their taste and the vital substances they contain are superior to many other fruit varieties. Since 1960, the production volume worldwide has nearly doubled.

One very special variety is the Montmorency tart cherry cultivated in the region around Travers City, Michigan. The composition of its ingredients is unique, and their balanced ratio makes this a real power-fruit.

Research has shown that eating this cherry can trigger healing effects. The anthocyanins it contains, which are responsible for the dark red color, are valuable antioxidants and can also contribute to reducing pain and inflammation. The melatonin content helps to improve our natural sleep rhythm.

Montmorency cherries are among the few fruits that taste equally good dried and fresh. Advanced drying technology results in optimal moisture content, combined with sweetness and an authentic fruit flavor. An appealing appearance and texture, and the absence of dyes, are just some of the other advantages. Montmorency tart cherries are used as an ingredient in cereals and yoghurt, or eaten on their own as a snack.
