Dried apricots, the natural and healthy way! These whole apricots are slowly sun dried and have no added preservatives including no sulphur dioxide. This also means that they are not too oily and retain their naturally sweet chewy flavour. A great source of dietary fibre and potassium, dried apricots are also rich in antioxidants, and their beta-carotene content makes them especially rich in vitamin A, providing nearly 47% of the daily value in a half-cup serving, according to USDA data. Vitamin A functions as an antioxidant and is essential for cell growth, immune system function and eye health. They are also known to assist in controlling blood pressure because of their high content of potassium, which is roughly three times the amount of bananas.
Dried apricots can be added into your meals in so many ways. Much loved in baked cakes and tarts, why not also try cutting into cubes and adding to your muesli or breakfast cereals. Can also be enjoyed straight from the pack on the go or at your desk for a naturally sweet and filling energy boost. Comes in a resealable foil lined pouch for added freshness and easy storage, also making them great for sharing.
