Dried Fruit

Diet Nutrition

Dried fruit is fruit with all the water removed, but all the sugar retained. Compared to fresh fruit, it is very high in calories and – although healthy – is not helpful to weight loss.

A handful of raisins is the calorie equivalent of a pound of grapes.
1 cup grapes has 60 calories while 1 cup raisins has 495 calories.

So if you are on a weight loss diet dried fruit should only be eaten in small quantities.

In addition, the fiber in dried fruit is less effective in satisfying your appetite.
