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.
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.

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.
