Dried Apricots

Dried apricots contain densely packed nutrition. Five pounds of fresh apricots can be dried to produce one pound of dried apricots (i.e. more nutrients packed into a smaller package!). The orange color indicates the rich beta-carotene that help resist vision deterioration, stress, and aging. Iron is also another key nutrient of dried apricots and great for helping increase blood flow and oxygen distribution. Calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and antioxidant vitamin C are also plentiful. Dried apricots have been shown to help ease constipation and indigestion.

Selection Process

Choose organic dried apricots to ensure they have not been treated with sulfur dioxide gas during processing to extend shelf life. Sulfur-containing compounds may cause adverse reactions in some people including asthma sufferers and sulfite-sensitive. They can be found in bulk bins and prepackaged.
