SULTANAS:PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Sultanas belong to the grapevine family (Vitaceae) and are native to
the Caspian Sea. Currants, sultanas and raisins, including those still
on the bunch, are known collectively as "raisins. The difference
between these three dried fruits is explained below:
Sultanas: seedless, large-berried and light yellow. Larger than currants
and smaller than raisins.
Currants: seedless, small-berried, purple/black color. Their name derives
from the Greek city of Corinth.
Raisins on the bunch: seeded, large-berried, generally with stalk.
To produce: the grapes are grown on the sultana grapevine. The
grapes are harvested when overripe. They are then either air-
dried or increasingly dried in special drying plants. Most
sultanas are bleached(sulfured) after drying and mechanically
destalked in order to extend their storage life and prevent
subsequent discoloration. Such treatment must be indicated
appropriately on the packaging. Treatment with vegetable oils
is intended to prevent the sultanas from sticking together.
Intended use: Sultanas are intended to be eaten raw and are used as an
ingredient in nut mixes, bakery products, muesli and desserts.

In Turkey, 30% of Grapes crop is offered as fresh, 37

confectionery industry and 3 % is used in wine
industry. “Seedless grape” takes the first place in our
export of the table grapes. A seedless variety,
“sultani” constitutes 95 % of the exported grapes.
DIPPING

Dipping solution
consisting of
water 100 kg,
Olive oil 0,6 kg
and potassium
bi carbonate 5kg

Grapes are dipped into a dipping solution before drying, in


order to remove the natural wax from the skin of the fruit. This
accelerates drying (max. 10 days) as the water is able to remove
faster, thus decreasing the rate of enzymatic browning
reactions. Consequently, lighter colored “Sultanas” are
obtained compared to the non-dipped “Raisins”.
SUN DRYING
SUN DRYING (NATURAL GROUP)

First CLEANING and SORTING in Vineyards

Sun Dried Sultanas are bleached with SO2 (to avoid deterioration and

removing large pieces of stalks, stones, very light berries and foreign
matters by means of Sieves and Aspirators. Pre-sized and Packed
Sultanas are transported to the Markets or directly Factories.
