Amla

Amla

Amla is known to be a very nourishing fruit with high levels in Vitamin C; it has quite a sharp or even a bitter and sour taste. Shana Amla may be used immediately from frozen, making them a tidy and convenient way of enjoying the fruit at its best.

Our vegetables and fruits are frozen close to the time of harvest to ensure they retain a higher level of vitamins and nutrients. Absolutely no water is added during the IQF (Individual Quick Freezing) process, providing you with nature’s best.
