Healthy ways to eat raisins

Raisins are one of the most popular types of dehydrated foods products. Raisins are dried fruit of various kinds of grapes that contain considerable sugar and are cured in the sun or in an oven. This drying process concentrates both the nutrients and sugars present in grapes, making raisins nutrient and calorie-dense.

Raisins are a concentrated source of calories and nutrients, including vitamin B6, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and thiamin.

Raisins are an exceptional source of naturally occurring chemicals called phytonutrients, such as phenols and polyphenols. Raisins have higher levels of antioxidants compared to other dried fruits. The drying process also preserves these antioxidants, promoting greater activity than in fresh grapes. They are also high in dietary fiber and have no cholesterol.

Raisins can be enjoyed right from the box. It can be eaten as a snack, either alone or mixed with nuts and either dried fruits. They are stirred into yoghurt, added to cereal and oatmeal, used in breads and cakes.

Raisins can be incorporated oatmeal cookies, chicken salad, granola recipe, muffins or pasta. Raisins make a delightful addition to mashed potatoes, sautéed vegetables, or other side dishes. In the Middle East, they are sprinkled on rice dishes.

Like other fruits, raisin should be washed thoroughly before they are used. They may then be soaked in warm water and stewed in exactly the same way as prunes.
