Bajadera is a unique dessert. It belongs to nougat chocolate desserts, the making of which is a very demanding task, and only the premium global manufacturers include them in their production programmes. In the last century, already in the twenties, Kras had supplied a large variety of nougat desserts, hand-made at the time. Based on tradition and owing to the know-how and creativity of Kras’s technologists, BAJADERA developed in the nineteen fifties. BAJADERA is characterized by its rich taste, because in addition to hazelnuts it also contains almonds. Its uniqueness and delicate melting quality result from an original and protected Kras recipe, according to which sugar, almonds and hazelnuts are processed in a special way. Such an exceptional, rich taste of the new dessert inspired Kras’s creative team and the exotic name of BAJADERA was born. Bayaderes were the elegant temple dancers of India. Therefore we like to say that BAJADERA combines Central European tradition in the production of fine desserts with oriental richness of taste. The quality of BAJADERA has been recognized with a number of awards, including several Monde Selection Gold Medals. BAJADERA is the first Croatian sweet product that has won the Croatian Creation label by the Croatian Chamber of Economy, for its original and unique composition and for its high and reliable quality. BAJADERA is made of high-quality ingredients the origin of which is strictly controlled. Apart from the enjoyment it provides when consumed, BAJADERA is nutritionally an exceptionally valuable product, too. The latest research has proved that BAJADERA’s principal ingredients – hazelnuts and almonds – are useful in the prevention of heart disease; they reduce cholesterol and contain dietary fibres. Therefore, we can say that our BAJADERA fits in well with an increasingly present trend in the food industry, the trend of the functional food.
