Dried Apricots

Apricots are a deliciously sweet and juicy fruit with yellowy-orange flesh. They originate from China but now grow all over the world. Fresh apricots look like small, round peaches with a pit in the middle. 

When dried, apricots have the pit removed. The drying process gives them a wrinkly, slightly chewy texture on the outside with a soft orange inside. We pride ourselves on our exceptional-quality apricots that are soft-dried, naturally dried, chopped, yoghurt coated and added into trail mixes.

Apricots are bursting with vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus and potassium. They are incredible at boosting skin health, improving eyesight, aiding digestion, enhancing bone density and balancing cholesterol.

Nutritional benefits of dried apricots

Apricots have impressive nutritional benefits, making them an excellent addition to your diet. Here are a few advantages to eating dried apricots:

Rich in vitamin A - Vitamin A, otherwise known as retinol, is incredible for your eyesight. It is also deeply hydrating to help plump your skin for a radiant complexion.

Packed with vitamin C - Vitamin C is crucial for a strong immune system to fight bacterial infections. It is a necessary vitamin to build collagen - a protein that makes tendons, fibres, tissues and skin supple and strong. 

Abundant in calcium- Your body needs calcium for healthy teeth and bones, but that’s not all. Calcium also aids wound healing by stimulating blood clotting for fast recovery.

High in phosphorus - Phosphorus is a mineral that the body requires to build tissue and muscle. This means dried apricots make a great snack to get in shape and stay strong.

Contain potassium - Potassium helps muscles work efficiently, which includes regulating heart rate and blood pressure. When you don’t have enough potassium, muscles can lose strength and start cramping, so getting enough of the mineral is vital.
