Organic Raisins are not a mere kind of grocery & gourmet food; this particular type of dried fruit is one of the most nutritious, delicious, and healthy snacks you can find. People have discovered this a long time ago and have been sun-drying grapes for thousands of years. Today we use the same methods of natural production to provide you with top-quality Organic Thompson Select Raisins from Food To Live®.

Our seedless grapes are raised under the warm California sun. They are hand-picked and sun-dried to preserve all the precious nutrients. The product is 100% free of any contaminants and GMO. Food To Live® dried grapes are also unsulphured and contain only natural sugar.

Raisins Benefits for Health

Raisins are very good for everyone’s health. They are a kind of food that can fit any diet because each dried grape provides you with a boost of vitamins and minerals.

The benefits of raisins for health include:

  • Quick energy boost.
    Food To Live® sultana have very little fat, but give you lots of carbohydrates and glucose that are transformed into energy right away.
  • Nervous system support.
    Due to their high content of potassium and copper, our California raisins help keep both the nervous and cardiovascular systems strong.
  • General wellbeing promotion.
    Our raisins give you iron, copper, magnesium, and many other nutrients that support the health of various systems in the body.

 

Bear in mind that raisins are bad for dogs. Both, fresh and dried grapes are toxic for your pet, so regular consumption can lead to serious kidney problems.

Raisins Nutrients and Calories

The greatest thing about the raisins nutrition value is that it comes at such a low-fat cost. Raisins aren’t fattening, unless you start eating over a cup of them every day. A handful of seedless, sun-dried sultana contains about 299 calories, no cholesterol, and only about 0.5 g of total fat.

However, this amount will provide you with almost 4 g of dietary fiber, 750 mg of potassium, 1.2 mg of iron, and a variety of other nutrients, including calcium and magnesium.

Raisins Uses and Storage

Dried fruit & raisins, in particular, make a wonderful snack, so you can buy Food To Live® California Thompson Organic Raisins in bulk and enjoy them every day. They are a fantastic ingredient for cooking & baking, especially if you want to make delicious raisins muffins.

Despite their long shelf-life (up to a year), raisins can go bad. To prevent this, you should store them in a dry place. Put your dried grapes into an airtight container and keep it in the fridge if you want them to last as long as possible.

Gluten-free Cinnamon Raisin Bread Vegan

Gluten-free Cinnamon Raisin Bread Vegan

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup warm filtered water
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup


Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plant-based milk
  • 5 tablespoons golden flaxseed meal (to place in milk for flax egg)
  • 3 tablespoons melted refined coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla


Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • ½ cup white rice flour
  • ½ cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup tapioca flour/starch
  • ½ cup arrowroot
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 2 tablespoons finely ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon finely ground sea salt


Instructions:

1) Pour one cup warm water into small bowl. It should be warmer than skin temperature but not too hot (about 110 degrees Fahreneheit) or it will kill the yeast. Sprinkle yeast on top and add maple syrup then stir gently and set aside (it needs to sit for a mininum of five minutes).
2) In a separate bowl combine plant-based milk and golden flaxseed meal. Set aside for at least five minutes until thickened and slightly gelled.
3) While yeast and flax mixtures are sitting, combine 11 dry ingredients in large mixing bowl and stir well. I like to use a whisk to ensure that everything is thoroughly combined.
4) Add melted coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla to flax mixture and stir until combined. I also like to use a small whisk in this case to ensure they are thoroughly mixed. Then add flax mixture to yeast mixture and stir gently to combine.
5) Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir gently with a wooden spoon until combined. The consistency will be more like batter than dough.
6) Pour into a greased 8″x 4” or 9″x 5” loaf pan. Set aside in a warm area while preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. The amount the loaf rises will depend on many variables in your environment (i.e. room temperature, age of yeast used, etc.) Do not allow the loaf to rise higher than ½ inch from the top of the pan or it may overflow when baking (this is normal with gluten-free breads as they lack the structure). I usually place a piece of aluminum foil on the bottom of my oven to catch any potential overflow if I use the smaller pan. The larger pan will yield a slightly shorter loaf.
Place loaf pan in center of the oven and bake about 45-50 minutes until a toothpick is inserted deep into the center and comes out dry. Cooking times may vary. Remove from oven and place on a baking rack to cool. Once loaf is cool enough to handle with bare hands run a butter knife around the edges and invert to remove. It should fall out with relative ease.
To store I wrap the loaf in wax paper and place in a air tight container in the refrigerator.

Enjoy!!!

  1. 4 out of 5

    Great raisins, only thing i dont like about them is the sunflower oil on them which makes your hand greasy when you grab them. Would love an option to get them without the oil but i know it keeps them fresher.

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

    It is the fourth time that I am ordering these raisins. The raisins are great and the shipment is fast. They are not cheap, but they are organic and NO sulphur.

  3. 1 out of 5 Unfortunately with OIL - will not buy again

    I am on a whole food plant based diet and foodtolive seems to be a great resource. However, when it comes to the raisins, the raisins even from ALDI are better (and healthier), as the ones from foodtolive contain sunflower oil. Such a shame food to live denies the power of food in its natural, pure form!
