Tierra Farms’ Organic Dried Thompson raisins are unsulphered and unsweetened and taste just like a good raisin should. Sweet, plump but not too dry.
Raisins contain antioxidants which promote good health. They also provide necessary fiber to our diets.
We generate free radicals in our bodies just by carrying out basic metabolic functions. And our environment is teaming with them in the form of pollution, cigarette smoke, certain foods and chemicals. Antioxidants are the foot soldiers in the battle to disarm these free radicals. They neutralize them by giving up an electron which minimizes their threat to our good health. This is why we encourage everyone to eat foods loaded with antioxidants.
In ¼ cup serving you get 2 grams of fiber, 0 grams of fat, 9% of vitamin A and 8% of iron for 130 calories.
Most fruit is sprayed with chemicals to prevent pests and mold. When this fruit is dried, the chemicals are concentrated. This is why we like Tierra Farm’s organic dried fruit. They don’t use pesticides and chemicals so you can be assured your dried fruit is full of terrific nutrients and great flavor and nothing you don’t want.
Of course raisins are great in your hot and cold cereals, baked goods and trail mixes. But you can also add them to our Spiced Chicken and Apples recipe and our Sicilian Style Stuffed Turkey Breast recipe.
