Dry-Fruits & Nuts

Dried fruits are of the best ways to get the nutrition of fruit when fresh fruits are unavailable. The only nutrient that is lost during the drying or dehydrating process is Vitamin C, but all other nutrients remain preserved and the taste is intensified. Dry fruit lasts a lot longer than fresh fruit, properly sealed it can last for years and is a popular item for food storage. While raisins are the most common and popular dried fruit, dried prunes, apricots, dried blueberries and dried apples are all popular alone, or in dried fruit bars and cereal and granola mixes.
