Gift Basket of 11 types of Luxary Dried Fruits (900 gr)


The best among the rest! 

To Haravard Medical School article(Is eating dried fruit healthy? - Harvard Health), Food contains calories, and eating too many calories-even of healthy foods-leads to weight gain. But there are healthy calories and unhealthy ("empty") calories, and fruit is a healthy source of calories. That's as true of dried fruit as fresh fruit. There are some caveats, however. Because dried fruit is so much smaller than the fresh fruit from which it comes, it's easier to consume a lot of calories eating dried fruit. I rarely eat three fresh apricots or 30 grapes in the course of a few hours, but I frequently consume more than three dried apricots and 30 raisins in a few hours. Dried fruits also contain more fiber and more of the antioxidants called phenols than fresh fruit, per ounce. Fiber fights heart disease, obesity, and some types of cancer (although its possible protective effect against colon cancer is controversial) So, by all means keep eating dried fruits: they are full of healthy nutrients. But avoid the added sugars, and keep track of calories. A taste you can't forget. — Anthony Komaroff, M.D. Editor in Chief, Harvard Health Letter   (Coconut, yellow apple, orange, kiwi, pear, persimmon, banana, strawberry, peach, mango, prunes)
