Is dried fruit a wise choice?

  1. Is dried fruit healthy? You can't just answer yes or no to that. Replacing fresh fruit entirely with dried fruit is not recommended. But it is a healthy substitute for sweets.

  1. Unfortunately all vitamin C disappears from the fruit due to drying. But there are still enough nutrients in it to call dried fruit healthy. It is rich in vitamin B1, vitamin B6, folic acid, iron, magnesium, copper and potassium. In addition, many dried fruits, such as figs, plums and apricots, are rich in dietary fiber.

Lots of fiber

  1. A healthy diet is impossible without fiber. They ensure a good bowel movement and they are also good for heart and blood vessels. Dried fruits are therefore highly recommended. Dried fruit also has a beneficial effect on cholesterol in the body. This is due to the presence of antioxidants, which protect good cholesterol (HDL) and have an anti-inflammatory effect. The biggest danger with dried fruit is that you can get cavities. Dried fruits are very sweet and sticky, so small pieces can stick to the teeth and cause cavities.

Healthy snack

  1. Dried fruit can be eaten straight from the bag. It is a very good substitute for sweets (also for your children). It is sweet and delicious and is also full of vitamins, minerals and fiber. You can eat the dried fruit anywhere: during work, in the car and on the couch in front of the television. Dried fruits are also delicious in a bowl of low-fat yogurt, for example tutttifrutti. This is a mix of all kinds of dried fruits. Delicious for dessert or breakfast in combination with muesli. Dried fruit is very suitable in various hot dishes, for example in a Moroccan tagine or in a salad. There are many delicious Southern European dishes with dried fruit in it.
