Certified Organic Frozen Raspberries from Turkey (1kg)
One full bag Japan certified organic JAS, fresh frozen raspberries from the pristine mountainous region of Turkey. No use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. GMO-free. All hand-picked, washed and individually flash-frozen (IQF) right after harvest for freshness. No added sugars, sodium, or refined starches.
These raspberries are the Willamette type - which is the juiciest of them all. They are dark red and harvested in mid-summer. Best used for smoothies, waffles, pancakes, oatmeals, and garden salads. Kids love to eat raspberries just like that. Raspberries are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber and are an excellent source of vitamin C, manganese, and dietary fiber. Please note that due to the nature of Raspberries, they might arrive mostly crumbled (not as nicely shaped as seen in the image). This does not affect taste and quality.
All our imported fruits and vegetables are strictly tested for E Coli, coliforms, molds, yeasts as well as listeria and salmonella in the country of export, in the country of packaging, and through selective sampling during import inspections in Japan and therefore meet very high microbiological safety standards. However, non-processed products of natural origin, especially non-GMO and certified organic will always have a certain degree of minor defects (less than 5%) these include, decolorations, insect damage, broken damage, crumble damage, squashed damage, over or under maturity, and minor natural non-harmful mold.
Absolutely no added sugars, sodium, or refined starches. No use of chemically synthesized fertilizers and pesticides. See more about certified organic below.
About Certified Organic
This product is certified Japan Agricultural Standard Organic (JAS) - both in the country of origin and Japan. Japan has one of the world's strictest organic certification standards. But what does certified organic mean when it comes to fruits and vegetables?
✔ Strictly tested for E Coli, coliforms, molds, yeasts as well as listeria and salmonella and therefore meets very high microbiological safety standards.
✔ Free of harmful synthetic chemical inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides or any food additives.
✔ Free of genetically modified seeds (non-GMO)
✔ The farmland and soil in use are free of any chemical treatments.
✔ Organic produce is heavily regulated. Producers and importers are checked and inspected by governmental bodies or certified third parties. Organic certification requires detailed bookkeeping and documentation for 100% tracability. "Certified organic" is a protected word and the use is legally restricted.
✔ Organic farming is a more sustainable when it comes to holistic food production. The lack of harmful pesticides is better for the environment.
✔ Organic produce comes mostly from family-owned farms that own smaller acres of organic land.
It is also important to mention that organic produce is more cost-intensive. Organic farming has lower yields compared to conventional farming and is oftentimes more labor-intensive as well. Additionally, organic certification and auditions require annual fees for producers, exporters, and importers resulting in higher prices for the end consumers.
Please note that non-processed, non-GMO, and chemical-free produce will always have a minor degree of defects; these may include, decolorations, insect damage, broken damage, crumble damage, squashed damage, over or under maturity, and minor natural non-harmful mold. Although rare, there may worms, scratches or mold on the product that cannot be seen during inspections. None of these are harmful or a safety issue and can be removed without worries.

Fresh and tasty not really sweet
Aside from the fact that raspberries are packed with vitamins, these raspberries are organic and delicious! My kids loved it. ❤️
I am VERY happy with this product!
Translated from Japanese: This is my first time eating raspberries, so I can't compare them to others, but they were plainly good! They’re organic so they’re safe and I’d like to order again.
Translated from Japanese: I made jam with strawberries, grated apples (alternative to pectin), raw sugar, and citrus juice.
It had less sweetness than the one on the market and could be made without additives.
There are other fruits that I'm interested in, so I'll try the others when I finish these.
