These little golden gems are delicious and packed with goodness. Raisins are one of the most well known and versatile dried fruits available today. However, they’re not a modern discovery. The process of drying grapes into raisins has been practiced since ancient times. Raisins were produced in Persia and Egypt and were even mentioned in the Old Testament.
Raisins are dried grapes. During mid-September, when their sugar content reaches a desirable level, grapes are handpicked and placed on clean paper trays to dry in the sun. A grape becomes a raisin when its moisture content drops below 16%. They are then removed from the vine and are stored in wooden “sweat boxes,” which are sanitary storage containers. Raisins are kept in the sweat boxes until they’re ready to be processed and shipped.
Golden and regular raisins are nearly identical in terms of most nutrients and daily value. A 1.5-ounce, single-serving box of either provides about 130 calories, 1.7 grams of fiber, 1.5 grams of protein and 25.5 grams of natural sugar. They contain calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium and most B vitamins.
Golden raisins contain Kaempferol is a flavonoid that may reduce your risk of developing cancer and cardiovascular disease. It acts as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial agent, and it may help prevent nerve disorders, diabetes and osteoporosis.
Golden raisins can be added to almost anything, both savory and sweet. A delicious addition to salads, curries, Moroccan rice, trail mix, muesli, granola, cake mixes, and added to your morning yoghurt.
They work well in raw food recipes when you want to add sweetness and keep a light coloured mixture. They can be added whole to energy balls to give a different texture to the mix, cake crusts, chopped into cake mixes like a raw carrot cake and cupcakes. Store in an airtight container to maintain freshness.
