Dried fruits prove that you do not have to sacrifice taste for a snack that is good for you. If you are like most kids, when growing up your parents were always pushing you to eat more fruit. Unfortunately, your preferred way of getting your daily recommended servings came in the form of fruit-flavored candy. Sweet and chewy, dried fruit is a savory alternative.
Dried fruit is fresh fruit that has its water content removed. When dehydrated, studies show that some nutrients become more concentrated. In a study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition revealed that antioxidants in dried cranberries, grapes and plums are twice as potent as those in their fresh state. Dried fruit generally contains a lot of fiber and is a great source of antioxidants, especially polyphenols. Polyphenol antioxidants are associated with health benefits such as improved blood flow, better digestive health and reduced risk of many diseases. Dried fruits are high in natural sugar and are best when eaten in moderation to reap the health benefits.
