Organic Mulberry Crumble


 
Launched in 2015, this product was originally designed for cereal bar producers, who needed to crumble whole Mulberries as a superfood ingredient for their bars.

Since then, our customers have discovered a myriad of uses for this delicious sweet and chewy ingredient. Mulberry crumble is a natural sweetener and when used as a replacement for refined sugars, lowers the GI index of the product.

Cereal bars, muesli mixes, ice cream topping and flavouring, snack packs and many more products benefit from this versatile addition to the natural superfood range.

Try it, we think you’ll like it…

Mulberry History

The caravans of camels that travelled the “Silk Road” from Turkey to China brought ancient civilizations in contact with many valuable products to be traded back and forth, one of the most desirable and important was silk.  Leaves from the Mulberry trees ‘Morus alba’ were used to feed the silk worms.  As a result, Mulberries became one of the favourite trees to grow throughout this route in mid-Turkey which is also known as Anatolia, and from where the famous Turkish silk carpets are sold throughout the world. 

The legend of Black Mulberries...

According to legend, the fruit of the white mulberry tree turned black as result of a tragic Shakespearean end to a love story, between Thisbe (a Sultan's daughter) and Pyramus (a poor shepheard).  Their families opposed their union, so one night, they planned to elope and meet under a mulberry tree.  Thisbe arrived first and was suddenly startled by the roar of a lion, while she was waiting for Pyramus.  The lion was just returning from a successful hunt, his jaws and mouth were still covered with blood.  Frightened, she dropped her cape and ran away.  The lion tore the cape, leaving blood stains on it, but then he too left.

When Pyramus arrived he saw the bloodied, torn cape and the footprints of the lion.  Thinking that a lion had eaten his lover, he took the cape in his hand, wept and shouted “You died because of me.  I tempted you to this place of peril, but wasn’t here to guard you.” He leant on the Mulberry tree sobbing.

“My blood also shall stain you!” he shouted at the mulberry tree, and drawing his sword, plunged it deep into his heart.  The blood spurting from the wound sank into the earth and reached the tree's roots.  Then the red colour travelled through the trunk to the fruit and turned all the white mulberries on the tree red.

By this time, Thisbe, still trembling with fear, stepped cautiously forth from where she was hiding.  She looked anxiously for her beloved.  When she came to the tree, she saw the changed colour of the mulberries and recognized her lover lying in a pool of blood, with her reddened cape in his hand, and realised what had happened.

Thisbe blamed herself for her lover’s death, by running away and allowing him to think she had been killed.  Deciding to be with him in death, she plunged the sword into her breast.  The blood that poured from her body turned the mulberries a darker colour still, a deep purple.  The sorrowful families of both lovers buried the two bodies in one tomb and the tree yielded purple berries ever-after, as it does today.   The legend is that since then, the gods began to grow black mulberries ‘Morus Nigra’ in Anatolia in order for the tragic story of Thisbe and Pyramus to be a lesson for those who try to separate lovers.
