Frequently Asked Questions
Where does the plum grow?
The plum, which grows wild on hills, thrives along the latitude of Taiwan and Hong Kong across the country on reddish earth. It is lovingly harvested by hand by farmers and is of the highest quality.
How long is the fruit fermented?
The freshly harvested fruit is fermented for at least 8 months and coated with special herbs. The released, healthy enzymes and microorganisms are particularly valuable for the human organism.
What does fermentation mean?
Fermenting is preserving with a controlled build-up of valuable enzymes and microorganisms. This centuries-old process has been revived with modern technology and makes our SHARE® a real SUPERFOOD. Other well-known fermented foods are e.g. sauerkraut, kimchi or miso.
Do I have to eat Share for life?
No, let your gut instinct guide you. You can enjoy Share® every day or whenever you feel like it.
How many fruits should I eat a day?
We recommend 1-2 a day at the beginning, later as desired
When should I eat the fruit?
Since every person is individual, you can also decide individually – when you feel like it. In Asia it is recommended to eat the fruit in the evening before going to bed and to drink a warm glass of water
Do I have to drink warm water with it?
Warm water improves the enzyme activity in the intestine and is good for the body’s cells. We recommend half a liter of water at body temperature after each Share® plum.
Why do the plums actually look different?
We are repeatedly approached by loyal customers who are unsure about the differences in the appearance of the plums. In order to avoid speculation, we would like to provide a few explanations here. First of all, it should be emphasized that Share-Original® is a purely natural product that is subject to corresponding fluctuations depending on the harvest, just like the grapes in wine production. But the duration of the subsequent fermentation also has an influence on the consistency and appearance of the plums. That is why every batch goes into production with certain differences. An important step in the processing is the NATURAL drying of the plums after fermentation. This is done (similar to coffee or cocoa beans) without any technical aids and thus leads to different results depending on the weather / humidity. As a result, this has an impact on the appearance but not on the quality of the plum and the appearance of the herb coat. Another criterion for the appearance (and also the ripeness) of the product is the storage of the packaged plums at home. Since it is a LIVING product, the plum continues to ripen in the packaging (also like good wine) and if stored in a dry, warm place, a crystalline coat forms from the drying molasses and herbs after a while. Basically, plums fresh from production tend to be greenish / herbaceous to dark brown, while older, stored plums appear more light brown and crystalline.
