Organic Fig Paste

Izmir Organic can produce high quality dried fruit paste. All foreign material of plant and non-plant origin such as stems and stones is removed from the product before processing. Stems in particular are cut one by one by our experienced team, otherwise hard material can be found in the paste.

  • Fig Paste Production
  • Aflatoxin control is performed prior to the washing and pasting stages. During washing salt is added to maintain the product’s taste but no other additives are used.
  • The raw material also undergoes moisture analysis using a DFA meter prior to being processed. Moisture level cannot exceed 24% otherwise fermentation may occur at a later time in baked goods, sauces, fillings or confections.
  • We can decrease the fig paste’s moisture level even further at customers’ request to produce a harder texture. The seeds of the figs are not crushed in order to preserve the crunchiness which contributes to the enjoyment of products containing fig paste.
  • Benefits of Fig Paste
  • Fig paste is an important source of the essential mineral potassium. Potassium is crucial in maintaining a healthy blood pressure. The pace of modern life often leaves little time for cooking fresh meals at home, which leads to increased reliance on ready-made processed food.
  • Processed food is typically high in sodium and its consumption often results in an imbalance in sodium-potassium levels in the body, which in turn can lead to high blood pressure. Potassium has the effect of relaxing blood vessels walls, thus reducing blood pressure. Consumption of fig paste can therefore help prevent heart disease.
  • Dried figs and fig paste have also long been recommended for people suffering from digestive disorders because they are an excellent source of fiber. Research has confirmed dried figs’ ability to reduce the symptoms of digestive discomfort in people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and constipation.
  • Fiber in figs also serves as a prebiotic, providing nourishment for gut bacteria, and helps to promote feelings of fullness and satiety, all of which contribute to maintaining a balanced weight. Including fig paste in one’s diet thus promotes a healthy digestive system and sound weight management.
  • How to Use Fig Paste
  • Fig paste can both be enjoyed on its own and as an ingredient in more complex foods. It can serve as a delicious spread on toast or pancakes for breakfast. It also pairs exceptionally well with different kinds of cheeses on appetizer platters.
  • As an ingredient, fig paste is often used in the preparation of fruit-filled cereal bars or fruit balls. It is also a favorite of bakers and is commonly used in baked goods such as cakes, muffins, cookies and pastries. The delicious sweetness of fig paste can replace sugar not only in baked treats but also in smoothies and shakes.Cooks may want to experiment by including fig paste to enhance sauces and fillings with a unique flavor and texture.

Did You Know?

The fig tree may have been the first crop to have been domesticated by man, preceding even staple foods such as grains and legumes.Recent archaeological research suggests that the domestication of fig trees took place 11 400 years ago, approximately 1000 years before the estimated domestication of wheat and barley.

Figs of a seedless variety were found in a village site near the ancient city of Jericho, in modern day Israel. Archaeologists point to several factors that may account for the village inhabitants' choice of the fig tree, including its ability to produce fruit more than once a year and the ease with which it can be planted.
