“Orly Cactus” has a research and development unit for food production. Products we have developed include confectioneries, ice creams, milk based puddings, pickles, salads, juices, frozen branches ready for cooking, pulp of branches and fruit pulp. Additionally, bread, breakfast snacks and baked goods. Used as an additive for nutritional purposes (to lower fat and sugar) to prepared dishes, meat and milk products. The new cactus has an inert taste, and it lends itself to endless diverse flavors. It has a unique physiology which lends itself to easy blending with the food industry. The new cactus answers the needs of the global market, as it is grown organically, does not require pesticides or herbicides that would affect local groundwater. The fruit also has a heavier mass in compared to traditional fruit - the production potential is clear. Additionally it requires a smaller amount of water by a large margin compared to other fruit production. From an agro-technical perspective, it can be grown in a variety of climates around the world, to be grown as the main produce on large fields or to be an “add-on” to existing produce being grown, with intensive irrigation or relying on natural precipitation.
