Green Raisins at their best!
Raisins have always been around the year and are used in much traditional baked goods, but they have a notorious reputation when it comes to eating them raw.
The yellowish-green raisins are basically sun-dried green grapes. The process of drying the grapes out gives the raisins a chewy texture with a sweet and a little bit of a tart flavour. Spoiler alert they, can be super sugary and high in calories, but it doesn’t mean that they don’t have any benefits to your health.
Green raisins are packed with so much energy, fiber and minerals that your body needs and not to forget, we pack the best and fresh one for you to fill your needs.
Caution with calorie count with Raisins
The grapes are naturally very sweet and sugary. When we dehydrate or sun dry them, the sugar molecules are trapped inside and gives an intense sweetness. This sweetness is bliss, especially for consumers with a sweet tooth but if you are trying to lose weight, then watch out; they have a good number of calories in them.
These green raisins are often called "nature's candy" because 1 cup of green raisin has around 217 calories. And the soda that we drink has almost 150 to 170 calories. This comparison is a bit eye-opening for anyone trying to reduce weight.
But honestly, having green raisins around a handful once a week or twice a week can help you a lot with many health issues. So enjoy them when you can!
