About

OUR BODY BECOMES WHAT WE EAT, SUCH AS THE SOUL BECOMES WHAT WE THINK.  

Mandarinella tangerine jam reminds us that healthy lifestyles can be delicious! 

WHO WE ARE !!!

Hello everyone! We are Marietta and Jelena, best friends from Montenegro (Adriatic Sea Coast) who love life, nature and believe in their success! Our mission is to present our 100% natural, organic, gluten free, healthy and useful product to the entire world – the tangerine jam, Mandarinella. During the past year, the two of us produce and offer our jam to the local population and healthy food fairs. We came to the idea first in our country to use tangerines, which we have in abundance, that were never sprayed and with a long tradition – for over 30 years. And we succeeded in our intention, we produced jam that can now be found on the tables of our fellow citizens.

We invite you to be part of our mission, because only with your help, Mandarinella can conquer the world.

TANGERINE AND HEALTH !!!

Tangerines are very tasty fruit, rich in vitamin C. Scientists have proven that they reduce the risk of cancer, because of the antioxidants that are found in the peel. They improve digestion, lower the level of "bad" cholesterol in the blood, help in losing weight, they are great for a cold prevention and stress. Beta carotene from tangerine synthetizes to vitamin A, which helps the good eyesight and soft skin. The tangerines also have folic acid, potassium, iron, magnesium, vitamins B1, B2, B3. Tangerines have very few calories – 1 tangerine has around 34 calories.

In our town of Herceg Novi, which has over 300 days of sunshine per year, tangerine have attained the positive energy from the Sun and we are transmitting it into a jar :)

WHY MANDARINELLA !!!

Mandarinella contains only a part of the fruit and tangerine peel (NON-SPRAYED) and very little sugar and lemon juice (manually strained domestic non-sprayed lemon). IT CONTAINS NO ADDITIVE, COLOR, NOR AN ARTIFICIAL ADDITION OF ANY KIND. We managed to pack nature into our jars, and with Mandarinella we have the opportunity to use the perks of a tangerine during the whole year with a healthy, sweet bite, and out of their growing season.

To take maximum advantage of it and preserve the nature, we have found a recipe for using tangerine peel – given that non-sprayed are equally useful as a fruit for our health! We put part of the peels into the jam, and the rest we dry with sugar and manufacture mandarincine – healthy delicacy that you can chew with tea, coffee, add to the cake because of the aroma, and it is considered to be among the healthiest candy out there.

Children have been enjoying Mandarinella for a year already, the young, the old, the healthy, the sick, the vegans, vegetarians, and all those who love to eat healthy, organic and gluten free food.

 HOW WE DO IT!!!  

The tangerine jam is a very rare product given the fact that the process of production itself does not allow the use of any machinery or machine; it is only possible to produce it manually. Tangerine itself is a juice, and only manually and in small quantities jam can be made without add-ons. The idea was born and we produced the first jars for ourselves and for our friends. Everyone around us was enthusiastic about the idea, taste and aroma, and that was an important support for us. That's how our little business started. The two of us represent the entire process of production, believe it or not. Firstly, we manually picked around 1000 kg of tangerines, which we then also manually peeled. Our families helped us with it, because the season when tangerines grow (August - December) is very short. Preparing the product for cooking is the most challenging part, because white fibers between the peel and tangerine fruit give great bitterness to jam, and they must be eliminated from each tangerine individually, by hand, because other way does not exist. The first jars were stored in our homes, and after the idea came into being and after Mandarinella gained popularity in Montenegro, we have rented the kitchen of a local restaurant for the whole process. An important step was the etiquette that we also manually cut with children scissors, markers and crayons, and therefore our product 100% home-made.
