Nutrition

Grapes are full of natural goodness. Australian dried grapes are dried slowly under the sun to remove moisture and effectively concentrate the goodness in the fruit.

When you enjoy dried grapes, you’re also enjoying a delicious source of concentrated, essential, health giving nutrients. Naturally low in fat and cholesterol and rich in natural fruit sugars, dried grapes are high in fibre and an excellent source of potassium, iron, thiamine and anti-oxidants. Their moderate to low glycemic index (GI) means dried grapes provide a slow and steady rise in blood glucose levels for sustained energy. Low GI foods are particularly important in the diets of people with diabetes.

Research has indicated that including dried grapes in the diet may play a role in weight loss. Eating dried grapes can increase release of leptin, a hormone which promotes satiety (a feeling of fullness) and can help control food intake. The high fibre content of dried grapes can also help you feel fuller for longer, with the additional benefit of improving blood cholesterol levels. 

Potassium is an essential element in the diet and is found in high concentrations in dried fruit. It plays a critical role in nerve and muscle function and in regulating blood pressure as it counterbalances the negative effects of sodium in the body. But, just like fresh fruit, dried grapes are naturally low in sodium. Dried grapes are rich in other essential minerals such as iron, required for effective oxygen transport and calcium which is important for bone growth and strength.

Grapes are also a major source of phenols (plant chemicals with anti-oxidant activity) and resveratrol, which is believed to have anti-inflammatory and anti-tumour properties and to be cardio-protective.
