Dried Fruit is Loaded With Micronutrients, Fiber and Antioxidants
Dried fruit is highly nutritious. One piece of dried fruit contains about the same amount of nutrients as the fresh fruit, but condensed in a much smaller package. By weight, dried fruit contains up to 3.5 times the fiber, vitamins and minerals of fresh fruit.
The humidity in the body of the fruit is removed until it reaches 20% of the initial weight. This dehydration process of the fruit has two purposes:
- Increase your chances of preservation
- Strengthen the taste of fruits subjected to this procedure
