Sultana and Thompson Raisins

For organic Sultana raisins or Thompson raisins , we are the place to go. We have years of experience as a manufacturer and can deliver orders as small as one pallet load anywhere in the world. Our partner companies will gladly assist customers with their retail needs.

  • Production of Sultana Raisins
  • We guarantee that our raisins meet established standards for mycotoxin levels thanks to the tests we perform on large samples of our raw material for ochratoxin A and aflatoxins before accepting it. The EU sets the limit for aflatoxin B1 at 2 parts per billion (2 ppb) and for total aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1 and G2) at 4 ppb in ready-to-eat dried fruits and at 10 ppb in dried fruits intended for further processing.
  • The limit for ochratoxin A, on the other hand, is set at 10 ppb. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows a maximum mycotoxin level of 20 ppb in all food products intended for human consumption.
  • All our raisins undergo 4 scans using laser, metal detector and x-ray machines and visual control. We deliver raisins of ready-to-use or RTU grade to our customers. We ensure that foreign material of both plant and non-plant origin does not exceed specification limits.
  • History of Sultana Raisins
  • Anatolia has a long history of viticulture which archeological excavations have traced as far back as 3500 BC. Viticulture and winemaking were always central to the region’s trade and in the livelihoods of Anatolian peoples.
  • Sultana raisins are an irreplaceable and healthy member of the dried fruits family. Whether golden, green or black, these delicious raisins are enjoyed by all. Our Sultana and Thompson raisins are grown in Turkey, Iran and Uzbekistan. They undergo additional tests in our facility for microbiological and chemical agents and are therefore guaranteed to be pesticide and lead-free. We supply raisins to small shops as well as wholesalers in Turkey and to importers throughout the world.
  • Sultana and Thompson raisins are both produced from the Vitis vinifera grape vine species but they differ in the way they are dried. A Thompson raisin is dried naturally while a Sultana raisin is dipped in vegetable oil mixed with natural potassium carbonate before being dried.
  • Benefits of Sultana Raisins
  • Raisins are dried grapes or currants. They pack more energy, vitamins and minerals than their fresh counterparts. A serving of 100 grams of raisins provides 249 calories and several times more fiber, vitamins, minerals and polyphenol antioxidants than an equal serving of fresh grapes. Raisins, however, provide less folic acid, lutein, carotenes and xanthine than the fresh fruit.
  • Adding a handful of raisins to your yogurt will help boost the calcium supply to your bones. Indeed, raisins are one of the best sources of boron, a micronutrient that enhances the body’s ability to absorb calcium and therefore plays a key role in the formation and maintenance of bones. Raisins are rich in potassium which also helps fight osteoporosis and joint degeneration.
  • How to Use Sultana Raisins
  • Raisins can be enjoyed as a sweet treat right out of the bag, especially when one is in need of a fast-acting source of energy. Since they can easily be eaten in excess, it is however preferable to combine them with other foods. They can be eaten at breakfast with morning cereal, oatmeal or yogurt. They can also be added to trail mixes.
  • Raisins pair well with greens and nuts in salads to which they add both color and a pleasant, chewy texture.They are also widely used in baked goods recipes, whether it be for cakes, muffins, cookies or scones. Their aroma and taste can also enhance both sweet and savory breads.

Did You Know?

The difference between Sultana and Thompson raisins lies in the way they are dried and not in the grape vine species from which they originate (Vitis vinifera).

A Thompson raisin is dried naturally while a Sultana raisin is dipped in vegetable oil and natural potassium carbonate before being dried. This explains the Thompson raisin’s reddish color and the Sultana raisin’s yellowish color.
