Dried Fruits

Organic Dried Fruit

Organic dried fruit has a rich history, dating back to ancient civilizations. In Mediterranean culture, dried fruits were a staple in the diet for thousands of years. In fact, dried fruits were even mentioned in Mesopotamian tablets from as early as 1800 BC.

The process of drying fruits began as a way to preserve them, with grapes and figs being among the first fruits to be dried in the hot sun. These early dried fruits, such as dates, figs, raisins, apricots, grapes, and apples, were highly valued for their intense sweetness and versatility in recipes for breads and desserts.

The process of drying fruit today involves removing the water content from the fruit, which concentrates the natural sugars and flavours. This makes dried fruits a sweet and flavorful option that is perfect for snacking, baking, and adding to cereals, yoghourts, and salads.

Incorporating Organic Dried Fruits into Your Diet: Tips and Tricks

Organic Dried fruits, also referred as dehydrated fruits, are a nutritious alternative to fresh fruits. The process of drying fruit involves removing the water content, which not only concentrates the natural sugars and flavours, but also increases the nutrient density.

As a result, dried fruits tend to have a higher concentration of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants per serving when compared to their fresh counterparts. Moreover, the long shelf life of dried fruits, which can be stored in airtight containers for prolonged periods without spoilage or decay, makes them a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles.

Some popular types of organic dried fruits include figs, apricots, dates, and raisins, each with its own unique usage in your diet.

Organic Dried fruits are a shelf-stable, versatile, and budget-friendly ingredient that pack a powerful punch of flavour and nutrition. A little bit goes a long way, making them a great option for those looking to add more fruits to their diet. Here are some tips on how to easily incorporate more dried fruits into your daily meals:

  •         One simple way to incorporate more dried fruits into your diet is by snacking on them alone. They are a convenient and delicious way to get your daily dose of fruits. When choosing dried fruits, it is best to opt for those that have no added salt or sugar. This will ensure that you are getting the most nutritional benefits from your snack.
  •         You can sprinkle dried fruits like cranberries, raisins, apricots, or dates over your cereal or oatmeal for an added boost of sweetness and nutrition.
  •         Dried fruits are extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of recipes to add flavour and nutrition. They can be added to smoothies, desserts, sauces, cakes and more. You can also chop them and add them to your baking recipes like cakes, cookies, and breads. They can also be added to sauces and marinades for added depth of flavour.
  •         Another great way to add more dried fruits to your diet is by mixing them into your oats. You can add a variety of dried berries like cranberries, blueberries, and goji berries to your oats for added flavour and nutrition. Once you have added the berries, you can then top your oats off with some chopped nuts and dried fruits for extra texture and flavour.
  •       Dried fruits like cranberries, apricots, raisins, and cranberries can add an extra layer of texture and flavour to your greens. Additionally, dried fruits can also provide additional crunch and satiety to your salad, making it a more filling and satisfying meal.
  •         They can be pureed into nut butters or fruit sauces to add flavour, sweetness and nutrition. For example, you can puree dried apricots and dates with almond butter to make a sweet and nutritious spread that can be used on toast or crackers.
  •         You can mix and match different dried fruits to find the perfect combination for your yoghurt.
