BioPure Paraficus ® is a convenient, easy to use, granulated form of pure, whole, certified organic, freeze-dried fruit of the fig tree (Ficus carica). Fresh figs are super sweet with a center full of crunchy seeds. What we think of as fig fruit, however, are not technically ‘fruit’, in the strict botanical sense. They are actually clusters of hundreds of tiny flowers turned inside-out and encased in a thin skin, called ‘synconia’.
The fig tree, with its large attractive leaves and sweet delicate ‘fruit’, has one of the longest histories of being a highly valued tree and food source. It is the most talked about fruit in the Bible and was considered sacred in Greece, Italy, Egypt, and southwest Asia.
