SUN DRIED MULBERRIES
Everything you want to know about:
Natural dried mulberries are a delicious and nutritious snack. For a fruit, they have unusually high levels of iron and protein, and are a good source of many nutrients.
These crunchy berries have no additives and pack a natural, sweet taste.
Our mulberries come from the white mulberry tree. The mulberry tree is also notable for its leaves, which are one of the only foods that silkworms will eat. Mulberry trees
are great to have in the yard because they grow very quickly, provide a lot of shade, and grow tasty berries every year.
Mulberries are a compound fruit, like raspberries and blackberries, and have a mild flavor. Eating just a couple can be great for your health - just a serving contains significant
amounts of Vitamin C, dietary fiber, iron, and protein. In addition, mulberries contain anthocyanins, a group of antioxidants known for their anti-inflammatory and possible
anti-cancer properties, and reservatol, an antioxidant found in red wine and peanuts.
You can enjoy mulberries by themselves as a snack or add them to other dishes. Try mixing them in smoothies, cereal, oatmeal, and yogurt or baking them in muffins, pies,
and chocolate cake. Mulberries can also be used to make puddings and wines.

Atilla Sevilmis (founder of Yaban Food) was a businessman based in Istanbul. Over time,
his health deteriorated on account of the adverse consequences brought about by urban life,
thus driving him to look for alternative ways of life. He decided to regain his health by altering
the way he ate. He started a macrobiotic diet laden with organic food. However, he often failed
to find the essential organic foods in the city. To make matters worse, a life full of stress in the city
was causing him to feel unwell.
For this reason, he rented an area of land in south-western Turkey in 1993 with the intention of
changing his whole lifestyle. He restored an old house there and started to live in it. Soon, he
began to accommodate groups of natural life devotees in his house. He fed his guests with naturally-grown products.
In the meantime, he kept renting new areas of land on which he grew products with the long-lost seeds
of Anatolia. Before long, he began exporting, if in small amounts, bulgur, chickpeas, whole grains, sesame,
tahini, dried mulberries, pepper paste and pomegranate syrup to the United States of America.
That’s how Yaban was born.
Over the course of the 19 years that have passed since that time, Yaban has become a company which
can offer many delicious products in the most natural way by using sophisticated Western techniques
and specifications in its food production thanks to its annual projects and a number of dedicated staff.
Now the company is managed by his sons Firat & Irmak
Each day we keep growing with our clients.

Mulberries are rich in anthocyanins (ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mulberry), which are the chemicals that give berries their colors.

Anthocyanins are thought to be able to increase thequality of our eyesight, fight cancer, slow down the aging process, fight or control diabetes, and generally strengthen the body against disease.
