GLUTEN FREE * SUPER FOOD * VEGAN FOOOD
I love dried fruit. A lot of my clients are surprised to hear this because they think it’s “fattening” and loaded with sugar, but neither is true—if you buy the right kind. In fact, strategically using dried rather than fresh fruit is a smart way to meet your nutrient needs and control your weight.
Here’s the deal: if you take one cup of grapes and remove the water, you’ll get about a quarter cup of raisins, so when fruit is dried the portion shrinks by about ¾. However, the nutrients are still there, so as long as you stick with an appropriate helping, about the size of a golf ball, you’ll get the equivalent of a serving of fresh fruit. The key is to always read the ingredient list. Some dried fruits are sweetened with added sugar, but many are simply dried or dehydrated with no additives or preservatives, so nothing is put in, and the only thing that’s taken away is water.
How does dried fruit relate to weight control? First, people who eat more servings of fruit have lower weights—even more so than veggie eaters according to some research. Fewer than 30% of adults eat the recommended two servings of fruit a day and dried fruit can be an easy way to fill the gap, especially since it’s portable. Dried fruit is also an excellent source of antioxidants and, some exciting new research has linked a higher intake of antioxidants to a lower body weight, less body fat, and less belly fat, even without eating fewer calories.
The main difference between dried and freeze dried fruit is that before they’re dried, freeze dried fruits are frozen, then placed into a chamber that uses a vacuum to gradually remove the water content while it thaws. The end product has all the flavor and nutrition of fresh fruit with a crispy, dry texture, and typically no ingredients other than the fruit itself.
