What is the nutritional value/health benefit of dried fruits?

All forms—fresh, frozen, canned, dried, and 100% juice–of fruits and vegetables are beneficial to your health! The biggest difference is simply water content. Dried fruit has been dehydrated, so for the same amount of calories as a fresh, frozen, or canned form of a fruit or vegetable, the serving size is smaller. For example, there are 130 calories in a ¼ cup of raisins and only 60 calories in ½ a cup of grapes. So enjoy your fruits and vegetables anyway you would like and try this Kale with Raisins recipe!
