Panakam-Tradition in a Bottle’s food products are all made by artisan families based on the recipes of their family or community which they have been following since generations.
Panakam-Tradition in a Bottle’s food products are all handmade in small batches by passionate food artisans continuing their family and community traditions. They are not mass produced in an industrial unit.
All the products are handmade and slight variations are normal in handmade food products. Raw materials like Mango, Gooseberry, Lime, Citron, Moringa Leaves, Coconut, Jaggery, spices etc are directly sourced from family owned estates and farms with specific characteristics depending on the harvest, Micro climate and Terroir of that particular region. Taste of such raw materials may vary from season to season due to the Terroir and various climatic conditions. Due to this reason, there may be a slight variation in the taste and colour food product made every year. This is what makes Panakam-Tradition in a Bottle a unique product.
Panakam-Tradition in a Bottle’s food products are all hygienically packed and sealed in glass jars/bottles only. We do not use any plastic Jars/bottles for any of our product.
Panakam-Tradition in a Bottle’s food products contain no preservatives, no added colours, no additives, no added taste enhancers, no vinegar and no added acetic acid. We use traditional Sun drying preservation techniques for mangoes for example and hence use very less salt.
We at Panakam-Tradition in a Bottle believe in balanced taste and hence refrain from using too much salt and Red chilly powder for our food products. Some of our Sun Dried mango pickles have the least salt content compared to many other Pickle brands in India, both Industrialised mass pickle brands and homemade pickle brands.
Some of our Pickles take almost a month to be made due to extensive labour oriented sun drying techniques. We just follow the time and tested age old sun drying techniques during the summer months. Some of our pickles are also stored for a few months before opening and bottling.
