Philosophy

Our passion for the prickly pear plant & its wellbeing benefits was the inspiration from which stemmed our company Ficurinia.
Our prickly pear plants are Organic. They grow and ripen under the warm sun of Sicily on untreated lands in soil that has unique mineral characteristics. So sweet and tasty that they are named ” the candies’’.
Picked during the early hours of the morning, the prickly pears are transported directly to our laboratories. Here they are seeded, peeled and transformed into pulp and concentrate. Once the seeds have been separated, the pulp is reduced to puree, then immediately cooled and frozen in the form of flakes and stored in plastic containers.
The seeds are used to produce the prickly pear oil.
Our prickly pears are selected and matured, always fresh in order to offer you the highest quality. Our products are ideal for the preparation of:
marbled ice cream, ice cream toppings, liqueurs, creams, granite, sorbets, drinks, preserves, jams, etc.
For the preparation of Sicilian cremolate and granite, the use of our prickly pear concentrate instead of sugar heightens the intensity of the flavor as well as adding mucilages (natural glycoproteins found in linseed and cactus plants such as Aloe, famous since antiquity for their health & wellbeing benefits).
Our pulp retains its color intact, even after fabrication and cooling.
The color of our syrup varies from an intense orange to rich fuchsia.
