Dried apricots, or Prunus Armeniaca (for it spread across Europe from Armenia), make a healthy snack containing minimal sugar. They may be served separately or in various confectioneries, especially popular in Asia and Russia. These apricots have a pleasant tart taste — just enough to add charm to their flavor without drawing your mouth.

Dried apricots are not short of nutrients and beneficial qualities as compared to fresh apricots. Although they lose the water contained in them, the fruits still preserve other elements that make them an excellent detail in your diet and are both delicious and wholesome. Moreover, due to the low level of moisture contained in them, such apricots are extremely easy to store.

Health Benefits

Apart from being a quaint treat, dried apricots provide you with a rich source of vitamins and elements for maintaining good health. Some of their beneficial effects and qualities are:

  • Improved digestion.
    Dietary fiber — namely, soluble fiber — contained in dried apricots allows your body to get rid of LDL (low-density proteins) and stabilize your cholesterol level. If you consume the fruit regularly, you will improve the functioning of your intestine.
  • Stable blood pressure.
    Due to their high level of potassium, dried apricots benefit your blood pressure greatly, helping you avoid hypertension. Moreover, when combined with sodium, potassium allows you to regulate the balance of water in your cells and organs.
  • High level of antioxidants.
    Dried apricots are rich in antioxidant phytonutrients — for example, in carotenoids. These make the fruit particularly useful for maintaining cell growth and boosting your immune system. Apart from this, the apricots are extremely rich in vitamin A which is indispensable when it comes to taking care of your eyesight.
  • Abundant iron and silicon.
    These two elements that can be found in dried apricots make the fruit a valuable ingredient in your diet. The former is beneficial for the state of your blood and prevents anemia. However, the iron contained in dried fruit is known as non-heme, and is, therefore, more difficult to absorb, so it’s recommended to complement it with heme iron to achieve the best result. The latter element, silicon, is what improves the state of your skin and hair.

  1. I love these apricots. Very flavorful, tart and sweet, soft but not mushy. I like to eat as they are but also use in cooking. The bag they come in is strong and easy to reseal.

  2. I use dried fruit in my Sons pureed meals. He is 20 years old and has special needs. His food must be pureed and I always put some dried fruit it. The product was as expected.

  5. Does it contain any preservative? because the color seems so golden that it almost likes dried apricots with sulfate. If it is sun-dried, it would be a better option.

    • These apricots may be treated with sulfur-containing compounds during processing. At this time we are looking for a better options on the market.

      Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • They are non-organic and yes this can contain Sulfate when processed.

  6. Is there any sugar added (during the processing) or is it only sugar from the apricots themselves?

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • There is no sugar added to our fruits.
