Brooks Mango

Burkina Faso - ORGANIC

The sweet mango

Dried mango strips from gebana Burkina Faso. Inspected and sorted by hand and packaged in our factory in Bobo-Dioulasso. These slices of the Brooks variety are sweet in taste and have only a little acidity. No sulphur, no added sugar. Since autumn 2021, the slices have had a higher moisture content than before. This makes them softer, but can also make them a bit sticky. The higher moisture content has no effect on shelf life.

Dried fruit can be stored at room temperature well past the best-before date in a tightly sealed container away from light. They only become slightly harder after a few months. Before using them for baking or cooking, you can soften fruit that has hardened by placing it in some hot water for a few minutes.
