Dried Fruit

Dried Fruit from Naturally Good Food

 

At Naturally Good Food we are always looking for the healthy option and dried fruits are some of the healthiest alternatives to refined sugar and are a great way to satisfy a craving for something sweet; adding dried fruit to your diet is an easy and tasty way to add fibre and the nutrients in fruit into a busy life.

 

Traditional dried fruit such as raisins, figs, dates, apricots and apples have been a staple of Mediterranean diets for millennia.

At Naturally Good Food we also stock a large range of organic dried fruits, these tend to be slightly more expensive, but for many the certainty gained from organic growing is a price worth paying.

For some dried fruit we just can't find an organic alternative, so this section of our website has the full range of dried fruits we stock, organic and non-organic dried fruit; happy eating/baking and snacking.

Guide to Dried Fruit

 

As it says on the tin, or in this case the packet, dried fruit is fruit with the majority of the original water content has been removed either naturally, through sun drying, or through the use of specialized dryers or dehydrators.

Organic v Non-Organic Dried Fruit

Sometimes it is difficult to see the differences between organic and non-organic dried fruit, perhaps the easiest way to see the difference is to look at dried apricots.

Organic Non-Organic Difference


The most immediate difference to the eye is the colour, the organic apricots are darker while the non-organic are a more vibrant colour.

 

 

The prime reason for this rather striking difference is that the non-organic has no added ingredients to help preserve the fruit, whilst the non-organic the preservation is helped by the addition of sulphur dioxide.

Dried fruit has a long tradition of use dating back to the fourth millennium BC in Mesopotamia, and is prized because of its sweet taste, nutritive value, and long shelf life.

When we think of dried fruit no only do we think of snacks, but also fruit cakes and puddings, so dried fruit is a valuable addition to the store cupboard.


Today, dried fruit consumption is widespread. Nearly half of the dried fruits sold are raisins, followed by dates, prunes, figs, apricots, peaches, apples and pears. These are referred to as "conventional" or "traditional" dried fruits: fruits that have been dried in the sun or in heated wind tunnel dryers. Many fruits such as cranberries, blueberries, cherries, strawberries and mango are infused with a sweetener (e.g. sucrose syrup) prior to drying. Some products sold as dried fruit, like papaya, kiwi fruit and pineapple are most often candied fruit.

Dried Fruit Benefits

 

Dried fruits retain most of the nutritional value of fresh fruits. The specific nutrient content of the different dried fruits reflects their fresh counterpart and the processing method.

Dried fruit keeps well, travels well does not bruise so makes an ideal snack, either keep in your bag or leave at work or in the car.

Cooking with Dried Fruit

If you use dried fruit in your cooking it comes with some distinct advantages:

  • The high fibre content provides water absorbing and water binding capabilities, can tenderise meals and enhances the nutritional value of any dish.
  • Organic acids such as sorbitol act as humectants, provide dough and batter stability, and control of water activity.
  • Fruit sugars add sweetness, humectancy, surface browning and control water activity.
  • Fruit acids, such as malic acid and tartaric acid, contribute to flavour enhancement and act as anti-microbial agents (suppress mold and bacterial growth).
  • Vitamins and minerals increase nutritional value and for the commercial cook adds additional credentials to a food label.
  • Phenolic compounds slow down lipid oxidation in meats. They add a natural caramel colour.

As Wikipedia says "The high drying and processing temperatures, the intrinsic low pH of the fruit, the low water activity (moisture content) and the presence of natural antimicrobial compounds in dried fruit make them a remarkably stable food. There is no known incident of a food-borne illness related to dried fruit."
