Drying is one of the methods of long-term preservation of food products, especially fruits.
A variety of fruits can be dried using fruit dryers or in the sun. During this process, all the water in the fruit is lost and dense and energetic substances remain.
Dried fruit has a longer shelf life than fresh fruit and is a good off-season substitute for fruit.
One of the best and safest ways to buy dried fruit in the days of the Corona outbreak is to order from online stores and online food markets.
By buying in person from these stores, in addition to saving time and maintaining your health, you can buy products with better quality and more reasonable prices and have them delivered in hygienic door packaging.
Dry fruit storage conditions
Nuts have a high speed and ability to absorb environmental moisture and can be attacked by insects or mold. You can use hygienic glass and plastic containers to store dried fruits. These products should be stored in a dry, cool place away from moisture and heat.
Properties of dried fruit and its effect on body health
This food is not different from fresh fruit in terms of calories, but it is tastier. The stomach is able to absorb more of it, and so more energy, nutrients and sugar enter the body.
In terms of nutritional value, each half cup of dried fruit or fruit chips is about the same as a glass of freshly chopped fruit and is rich in micronutrients, fiber and antioxidants. Among its varieties, bananas, persimmons and figs are the most high-calorie and kiwi the most low-calorie.
The benefits of dried fruit are many and can be a good snack to relieve hunger. But consuming too much of it can be harmful to the body. One of the most important disadvantages of dried fruit is its high energy and low volume, which, if consumed in large quantities per meal, causes an increase in sugar and consequently overweight.
