For our ultra-pure wild garlic tincture, we use only the freshly harvested leaves of Allium ursinum from sustainable cultivation. The tincture is sourced directly from an experienced producer located in Tuscany, where the plants are grown without the use of plant protection products. The wild garlic leaves are carefully processed within a few hours of harvesting in order to preserve their valuable nutrients.
Invariably, the extraction agents alcohol or glycerine (glycerol) are used for the production of tinctures. We have chosen to use an alcohol extraction, as extractions using vegetable glycerin produce tinctures which are unsuitable for individuals with diabetes and can cause flatulence. Additionally, these tinctures vary in quality, and often use low-grade glycerine from monocultures, genetically modified plants or from biodiesel production, as it is a by-product of the industry.
The tincture is produced by a family business located in the heart of Italy which has operated for generations. The manufacturer attaches great importance to the use of high-quality raw materials and gentle processing methods.
The extraction process involves exclusively edible ethanol, which is produced from beetroot molasses cultivated without the use of plant protection products. Unlike conventional tinctures, which contain up to 70% ABV, our tincture is produced exclusively for us with an alcohol content of only 45% ABV, which makes it particularly well tolerated.
All raw materials used for this tincture are pesticide-free and non-GMO.
We use environmentally friendly amber glass bottles for the packaging of this product.
