Exclusive RAW butter from activated walnuts, which are hand-picked in the picturesque and clean mountains of Albania. Enjoy the best quality and flavor that you can hardly find elsewhere.
Walnuts are an important part of Albania, its cuisine, and its nature, more than any other types of nuts.
One of the regions in Albania well-known for walnut cultivation is the Dibra region. The production of this butter supports the cultivation of traditional old varieties that are endangered due to imports from abroad.
The taste of this nut butter is rich and earthy, and it complements savory foods, especially cheeses, exceptionally well.
The Persian walnut originally comes from the Persian Gulf region, but today, it is grown all over the world and is a favorite tree in many countries, not only for its nuts but also for its valuable wood. Walnuts also have their place in culture and traditions. They symbolize happiness and fertility and are often found on wedding tables. Their hard shells and the difficulty of cracking them have become the subject of various stories and traditional customs.
A completely unique walnut butter with several key features:
- Handcrafted Production - The butter is meticulously crafted in small batches, from harvesting to grinding, with love and care.
- Nut Activation - Walnuts are soaked in water for 4 hours, initiating the sprouting process, which neutralizes inhibitors and antinutritional phytates, making the seeds more digestible and increasing the bioavailability of vitamins and minerals.
- RAW Quality - The seeds are processed at low temperatures (up to 42°C), ensuring that all the essential nutrients and delicate sesame flavors are preserved. This means you can enjoy the full range of sesame's flavors and beneficial compounds.
- Vegan and 100% Natural - The butter is vegan and contains no additional ingredients such as palm oil, preservatives, or sugar.
- Local Production - Local nut production and processing minimize long-distance transportation, reducing the environmental impact associated with shipping and maintaining product freshness. It also supports the local economy, creates job opportunities, gives producers control over production, and increases transparency throughout the process.
- Regenerative Agroforestry - The Pemla company, which produces nut butters and collaborates with crop growers, adheres to a regenerative agroforestry approach. This approach involves a modern perspective on agriculture and forestry, with the aim of restoring and improving soil and ecosystems. It emphasizes sustainable soil care, including erosion reduction, soil preservation, and crop diversification. This involves practices such as crop rotation, composting, and limiting the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. It also places importance on sustainable water management and biodiversity conservation in forestry, with the goal of supporting local communities and social justice.
