Australian dried grapes are full of natural goodness.
They are high in fibre, a great source of vitamins and antioxidants, and rich in essential minerals such as iron and potassium. They have virtually no fat or cholesterol and are low in sodium.
Dried grapes have a moderate to low glycemic index (GI), which means they provide a slow and steady rise in blood glucose levels for sustained energy. Eating dried grapes can increase the release of leptin – a hormone that promotes satiety (a feeling of fullness). Their high fibre content can also help you feel fuller for longer, with the additional benefit of improving blood cholesterol levels.
Grapes are also a major source of phenols (plant chemicals with antioxidant activity) and resveratrol, which is believed to have anti-inflammatory and anti-tumour properties and be cardio-protective.
