DATES 1


GRADES DATES AVAILABLE Sair (Sayar) Dates There is no grading of dates in the traditional sense. Since there are Mazafati Dates Zahedi Dates so many different types of dates, differentiation is usually based on Medjoul Dates the variety. Each variety has its advantages and disadvantages and Deglet Nour Dates Piarom Dates its specific characteristics. Rabbi Dates However, as already mentioned at the beginning, the dates can be DATES PRODUCTS Chopped/Sliced Dates divided into three categories: Chopped Date Paste Date Date Paste Dry: (moisture content and 10%) eg Zahadi Semi Date Syrup Stuffed Date With-Almond & -dry: (moisture content between 10 and 15%) eg Deglet Nour, Sayer Pistachio Soft: (moisture content between 15 and 20%) eg Medjoul or Masafati ORIGIN PRODUCTS Iran The Tunisians differentiate within the individual varieties according to Pakistan Tunisia the degree of contamination and defects as well as infestation. A Algeria California category 1 date has significantly less infestation than a category 2 Saudi-Arabia date. PACKGING PRODUCTS Cartons of 5 kg, 10 kg, In Iran, the dates are sometimes sorted by size. Worth mentioning 20 kg, 22 kg and 23 kg net Content of cartons in here is the Sayer date, which is mostly used for industrial purposes. polyethylene bags. The Iranian sayer date is classified by its size as well as its Packed goods: Cardboard boxes, raviers, bags and cleanliness. While size is easily measured by the number of fruits per baskets of 175 g, 200 g, kg, cleanliness varies from region to region. However, it can be said 250 g, 500 g and 1.000 g that cleanliness is in equal proportion to the size of the date. The 2 large select dates are very clean and almost \"free flowing\" and the FAQ dates are usually very dirty and sticky. Select Grade A approx. 160 fruits per kg Select Grade B approx. 190 fruits per kg GAQ (Good Average Quality) approx. 220 fruits per kg FAQ (Fair Average Quality) approx. 260 fruits per kg The Sayer dates are sorted according to how much fruit there is per kilo. The sizing is done before the pit is removed from the date. The size classification is then also used for the date without a pit, although strictly speaking there are many more dates per kilo. (A date with a pit weighs 4.75 g on average, a date without a pit weighs 4.0 g on average) ➢ NO PESTIDCIDE ➢ NO PRESERVATIVE ➢ NO ADDITIVES ➢ NO MSG ➢ NO ARTIFICIAL COLORS OR OILS ➢ FULLY NATURAL ➢ ALMOST ORGANIC (LIMITED) ➢ GLUTEN FREE

Damage to the pit (the less the better) USA: cartons of 50 lbs Closed pistachios (the fewer the better) (22,68 kg) net PISTACHIOS WITH SKIN big/ small 4 BLANCHED PISTACHIOS Whole, dark green nuclei Whole, normal green nuclei Whole, light green nuclei Whole, yellow nuclei Dark green fraction Light green fraction SPECIAL The green pistachio nuts deserve a special mention. The riper a pistachio becomes, the larger its stone becomes and the more it changes color from a deep green to a light green-yellow. The meat, ice cream and chocolate industry as well as the catering industry are interested in the green pistachio nuts, which they use as eye-catchers in their products. In addition to Turkey and Sicily, Iran in particular has specialized in the production of these goods. So far, the USA has produced almost no green pistachio kernels, which is mainly due to the fact that the sorting costs are very high due to the high manual labor involved. So that the kernels are quite green, the pistachios are \"plucked\" from the trees when they are unripe, about 1 month before the normal pistachio harvest. The pistachio kernel is very green and slightly smaller, so the stone shell is not yet open. After the harvest, the stone shell must therefore be opened artificially by a mill. The resulting purple-skinned kernels are tossed in hot water, which separates the purple skin from the pistachio kernels. However, it is only solved, not removed. The further removal of the skin is done by vibration and air separation. The pistachios run over vibrating steel plates, causing the loosened skin to fall off. Since the scraps of skin are lighter than the pistachio kernels, they can be vacuumed off later. In a further step, the green pistachio kernels are divided into light and dark kernels by a laser scanner, so that they can later be divided into five color categories by hand. Another sorting criterion is the fraction of cores that are broken. The less breakage there is in a batch, the higher the quality. AFALATOXIN FREE, GUARANTEED

ALMONDS 15


GRADES ALMONDS AVAILABLE While the grading of the almond kernels, referred to below as almonds, is quite detailed, the almonds in the In-Shell shell are only classified according to their origin. Kernel ALMONDS CAN BE DIVIDED INTO 3 WAYS: PEANUTS PRODUCTS The biologically different types of almonds, the grades or sizes of the individual almonds, as well as the Blanched quality of the almonds in terms of purity and damage. Un blanched ORIGIN PRODUCTS 1) Almond varieties Iran There are hundreds of different types of almonds spread all over the world. In the following, only the most Australia well-known almond varieties in the two most important growing countries, the USA and Spain, will be Italy discussed. Portugal The following varieties are most common in the USA. Spain a) Nonpareil California In the largest producing country for almonds, the USA, the nonpareil is the most common almond PACKGING PRODUCTS variety. This makes it the most common type of almond in the world, and for good reason. The Nonpareil is Bags of 50 lbs (22,68 kg) earlier ripe than all other types of almonds, it is light in color and can be blanched or chopped very well if net or 25 kg net. desired. The cores have grown evenly and are relatively flat. b) California 16 California is actually a group name for many types of almonds. Not quite as good as the Nonpareil in terms of quality, but still better than the “Mission”. The California has darker skin and a stronger flavor than the Nonpareil. In contrast to the Mission, however, it can still be blanched. c) Caramel Of all the California varieties, the Caramel is the most common almond. It is most similar to the Nonpareil and thus deserves a separate mention. d) Mission Just like the California, the Mission is more of a combination of different types of almonds. They are all characterized by dark skin and a very strong taste. The Mission Almond is difficult to blanch and, accordingly, its use is more likely to be seen in the confectionery and ice cream industries. e) Neplus The Neplus almond brings up the rear among American almonds in terms of quality. It is very dark and, like the mission, cannot be blanched and is not even graded because of its inferiority. This almond can only be used to make marzipan. In Spain, almonds are distinguished as follows: a) Larguetta This is a very high quality almond with an elongated shape. It is the almond that is most commonly grown in Spain. Compared to the Californian almonds, the Spanish almonds have a more intense taste. b) Valencia This almond is rather rounded and not of the same high quality as the Larguetta. Generally speaking, Spanish almonds still have a bitterness of 1-2%, while US almonds are 100% sweet. 2) Almond sizes and grades Almonds are graded according to the number of almonds per ounce (1 ounce = 28.35 g). The more almonds are weighed per ounce, the smaller they are. 18/20 20/22 23/25 25/27 27/30 30/32 32/34 34/36 36/40 3) Quality in terms of purity and damage The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) has specified exactly when an almond may bear a certain quality designation. Several criteria are decisive for this, such as the foreign body component, the proportion of half or damaged kernels, insect damage, etc. With decreasing quality, the gradations are as follows: US − Fancy US − Extra No. 1 US − No. 1 US − Select Sheller Run US − Standard Sheller Run US − No. 1 Whole & Broken US − No. 1 pieces In addition to these different subdivisions of the almond kernels themselves, there are numerous other subdivisions in the subsequent industrial processing. As already mentioned, almonds are blanched, chopped, sliced, slivered, ground, caramelized, roasted and much more. There is no calibration for the almonds in the shell, also known as cracked almonds. The almonds are only differentiated according to their varieties, which are native to the respective countries of origin. a) Australia molar b) Italy San Giovanni c) Portugal Portuguese hard-shelled almonds d) Spain Juno, Cartagena e) United States California Peerless Almonds in the shell are practically only available at Christmas time. The Cartagena variety has such a soft skin that it can almost be cracked by hand.

RAISINS 31


GRADES RAISINS AVAILABLE The topic of grading sultanas is very complex, since almost every country of origin has its own system for grading sultanas. From the large Currants number of different systems, only the most important ones are singled out below. The grading is almost always divided into three categories: Sultanas The size of the berries Sun Dried The color / brightness of the berries Golden The cleanliness of the finished goods. Long Green The sultanas can be described fairly accurately by these three categories. For example, the sultanas can have small berries, are dark and full of Long Golden impurities, or they can have large berries, are light-colored and very clean. In the following, only the natural, ie the unsulphurized goods are written about. Of course, the color criteria mentioned below do not apply to RAISINS PRODUCTS sulphurised goods, as all sulphurised berries are very light in colour. Sulphured Unsulphured TURKEY In Turkey, the division into the three categories mentioned above is implemented best. ORIGIN PRODUCTS Iran Size of the berries Turkey Chile Mini 600 - 700 berries per 100 g California Small 400 - 600 berries per 100 g Australia South Africa medium 300 - 380 berries per 100 g Greece default 250 - 300 berries per 100 g PACKGING PRODUCTS Cartons of 10 kg and 12.5 kg jumbo < 250 berries per 100 g net.

Size and color of the berry are evaluated together and not much is said about cleanliness. The Greek sultanas, which experienced their heyday during the 50s and 60s, have remained at this level in contrast to the Turks. type 0 This is a very light colored sultana that has around 180-200 berries per 100g type 2 This is a normal brownish sultana that has about 250 berries per 100g type 4 This is a dark brown sultana with an interlude of almost black berries that has more than 280 berries per 100g The smaller sultanas screened out for each type are classified into sub-types, which are identified by a 2 in front of them. type 22 The small sieved type 2 sultanas are called type 22. They have more than 250 berries per 100g but the same color as type 2 type 24 The small sifted type 4 sultanas are called type 24. They have more than 280 berries per 100g but the same color as type 4 AUSTRALIA In Australia, sultanas are only classified by color. All berries are between 5 and 15 mm in size. Just like in Greece, not much is said about cleanliness. However, it can be said that the lighter the berries, the better the quality. 6 crowns Very good quality. Golden yellow color, small quantity 5 crowns Good Quality, Bright Color, Bigger Quantity 4 crown protein Good quality, normal brown color, larger quantity 3 crowns Normal quality, rather dark color, not for export 2 crowns Declining quality, dark color, not for export CALIFORNIA / UNITED STATES In California, no word is given on the color of the berries, as all berries are the same dark, slightly bluish color. The cleanliness of the goods is monitored very closely on site by the state DFA (Dried Fruit Association) and is consistently good. Because of this, Californians only classify their wares by size: Midget 265 - 350 berries per 100 g Select 180 - 260 berries per 100 g jumbo 90 - 170 berries per 100 g Mini midget 350 - 440 berries per 100 g CHILE The same applies to Chile as to the Californian raisins because they are the same variety (Thompson Seedless). The goods are dark to slightly bluish. The cleanliness isn't quite as good as the Californian ones. When it comes to size, however, the Chileans go their own way. They screen all sultanas and classify them according to the size of each bunch. Small 8 - 10mm medium 10 - 12mm jumbo 12mm and larger SOUTH AFRICA There are two varieties of sultanas in South Africa, classified only by their size. The dark sultanas, which are dried in the sun, and the light, so- called Orange River sultanas, which are dried on wire racks in the shade. Small 450 - 550 berries per 100 g Midget 320 - 380 berries per 100 g medium 180 - 240 berries per 100 g bold 120 - 200 berries per 100 g jumbo 80 - 120 berries per 100 g IRAN Iran has the most primitive classification. Colors and cleanliness are not officially talked about, although there are big differences between the individual unloaders. A distinction is only made between normal berry and small berry sultanas. On average, Iranian sultanas are a bit more sour than sultanas from other provenances, and the flesh is also a bit firmer. normal berry 300 - 350 berries per 100 g small berries more than 400 berries per 100 g PESTICIDE FREE

CAVIAR 35


Grades CAVIAR AVAILABLE Beluga (HUSO HUSO) 1. Beluga caviars are the most expensive among the caviar types. Osetra (ACIPENSER The high price of the caviar can be attributed to the rareness of GUELDENSTAEDTI) the Beluga sturgeons in the Caspian Sea. (Currently, only 100 Sevruga (ACIPENSER Beluga sturgeons can be caught in the Caspian Sea every year.) STELLATUS) The caviar is also recognized worldwide because of its egg size. Persian Osetra Having a size of a pea, the Beluga eggs are the biggest. And (ACIPENSER PERSICUS) because of the faint ocean taste of the Beluga caviar, its price CAVIAR PRODUCTS increased 200% in a span of 4 months. The Beluga caviars can Sulphured be divided into two grades, 1 and 2. The grades depend on the Unsulphured factors stated above. ORIGIN PRODUCTS 2. Osetra caviars follow the Beluga caviar in the ranking. Caspian Sea The Osetra caviar is known for its nutty taste. As experts put it, PACKGING PRODUCTS this type of caviar has a creamy walnut taste. Osetra caviar only Available in the following has problems in taste consistency. Because the Russian sizes, 10g, 20g, 30g, 50g, sturgeons (the fish from which the eggs came from) are bottom 100g, 125g, 200g, 250g, feeders, the egg taste depends on the food they eat. Color is 500g, 1kg another factor here since the Russian sturgeon eggs change color according to fish maturity. The Osetra caviars can be 36 divided into two grades, 1 and 2. The grades depend on the factors stated above 3. Sevruga caviars are next on the grade list. The delicacy is known for its taste that connoisseurs appreciate a lot. It has the strongest taste among caviars. The only thing that made this caviar less expensive than the two caviars is the abundance of the sturgeon from which the eggs come from: the Stellate sturgeon. Eggs from Stellate sturgeons in their prime age make the best Sevruga caviar. Like the Beluga and the Osetra caviars, the Sevruga caviar can also be classified into two sub grades: 1 and 2. 4. Pressed eggs are the last on the grade list. Consistency is an important factor here since it is possible for different fish roes to be used in making this caviar. It can also be classified into sub grades 1 and 2. You may not have trained for at least ten years in caviar making, but after knowing these guidelines, you have the basic knowledge in grading caviar!
