DRIED APRICOT

Description

Lightly sweet but not candy-like - dried apricots are packed with potassium, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin A that are vital for cell growth and immune system function. This chewy, tangy fruit is also rich in antioxidants to help neutralise free radicals that damage our cells thus preventing age-related diseases. Fat-free, low in calories, and high in flavor – they make a great addition to breakfast cereals for a nutritional boost or you can even enjoy it as an appetizer and snack in-between meals!

Fun fact: Although dried apricot originates from the dehydration process of its actual fresh fruit, it contains the same nutritional value that our body can benefit from.
