GREEK PEAR: In dried form from 4G
The pear has been known since ancient times, since it also refers to the epic of Homer, the Odyssey, the pear was called “the gift of the gods”. Although the pear origin is detected 3000 years ago in West Asia, there are some assumptions that its history has roots in the Stone Age. Wild pears come from Europe and Asia and their presence dates back to prehistoric times. They were cultivated by the ancient Phoenicians and the Romans and were a delicious dish for the ancient Persian kings. They became so popular so that over 200 varieties were grown in medieval Italy.
Until the 17th century the French had developed 300 different varieties, inspired by Louis XIV’s passion for that fruit. The first pear was planted in America in 1620 AD, and until that time it was a great introduction from France. Today there are over 5,000 known varieties in the world. Of course, until the 18th century, the pears did not have the soft juicy fruit they know today. At that time the various varieties developed that gave it its distinctive texture and flavor. Today, the main pear producing countries are China, Italy, and America.
Pears are an excellent source of water-soluble fiber. They contain vitamins A, B1, B2, C, E, folic acid, and niacin. They are also rich in copper, phosphorus, and potassium and in smaller quantities in calcium, chloro, iron, magnesium, sodium and sulfur and have few calories.
They are considered to be hypoallergenic fruits that are rich in fiber but are unlikely to cause side effects and are therefore suggested to people suffering from various dietary allergies.
They also benefit from the fight against various diseases. Pear juice is recommended even for infants, whether for people who have allergies.
