NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS OF APRICOTS

Benefits of California sun-dried Blenheim apricots

Not all dried fruits are created equal. Sugar-encrusted dried fruit such as pineapple and bananas can’t compare to the simple gift from nature: the dried apricot.

With a hefty dose of fiber that remains intact through the drying process and a great concentration of vitamins and minerals, dried apricots are a veritable superfood!

One cup of dried apricots provides 94% of your body’s daily need for Vitamin A and 19% of its iron. Dried apricots also contain potassium & antioxidants and have been known to lower cholesterol and improve digestion.  Dried apricots are fat free, low in calories and easy to add to savory & sweet recipes, giving them a nice healthy addition!

Below are a few of the beneficial substances found in B&R Farms’ sun-dried Blenheim apricots.

Soluble Fiber—Helps to lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels.

Potassium—Aids in brain function and helps to regulate blood sugar.

Vitamin A—Maintains eye health, bones and teeth, helps prevents urinary stones, strengthens white blood cells and may reduce risk of cancer.

Calcium—Helps with weight management, combats cancer and osteoporosis & helps maintain heart health.

 Reap the benefits of dried apricot nutrition!
