Organic dried fruits are healthy snacks for everyone. Except for some vitamin C, the only nutrient that disappears from the fruit when it is dried is water. Whether the fruit is dried in the sun or through a hot-air treatment indoors, it still retains nutrients like iron, potassium and other minerals, antioxidants, and fibre.
Dried fruit snacks are portable and lightweight and are easy to store, with little or no spoilage. They can often replace cravings for junk sweets and highly processed carbs. Studies have also shown that for most people, blood sugar levels stay low when one snack on dried fruit, partially because the high fibre content slows down the glycemic load. Also, the fibre can prevent the fruit's sugar from boosting high levels of triglycerides (a blood fat that can increase the risk of heart disease).
We’ve included our favourite dried berries, currants, raisins, dates, apricots, prunes and figs as part of our organic dried fruit collection. Due to the fruits being organically grown, you can rest assured that the dried snacks retain their flavours and nutrients. Snack Healthy!
