Dried Superfruits - Overview

Print E-mail
dried fruitDried fruit can be a terrific source of health-promoting nutrients as the fruits’ benefits remain and are actually concentrated if you measure by volume. (Except for Vitamin C: there’s little C in dried fruit.) It’s getting easier to find variety in dried fruits beyond raisins, dates and prunes in your local market. Blueberries, cranberries, cherries, currents, apricots and figs are now more readily available. One thing to think about when you buy dried fruit is pesticides. Some fruit is heavily sprayed with chemicals to prevent pests and mold. Of course when the fruit is dried, the chemicals are concentrated. Blueberries and cranberries are not a heavily treated crop but strawberries and grapes (and thus raisins) are and so go organic when possible.
