Dried fruits are not a new concept; in fact, they have been a staple of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern diets for centuries. Early gatherer populations in these regions discovered the edibility of naturally dried fruits which had fallen to the ground and loved their sweet taste. Dried fruits became core fine food products in local diets and engraved tablets have been found with recipes for bread and other foods dating back up to 4000 years. These fine food products were later traded around the world along the silk road as early as 200BC spreading these delicious foods which are sold by Persian wholesalers today. In modern times, dried fruits have become one of the largest fine food products worldwide, with dried apricots, figs, dates, plums, and grapes being some of the many favorites. Persian wholesalers such as Takin supply a wide range of authentic dried fruits to Australia.
Dried fruits and other fine food products have substantial nutritional value, retaining almost all of the nutrients of their fresh counterparts. They contain a wide range of vitamins and minerals such as folate, antioxidants, and polyphenols which are associated with blood flow and digestive health. However, dried fruits can also reduce the vitamin C content, meaning fresh fruit is still an important part of a balanced diet. As with all foods, fine food products such as dried fruits should be consumed in moderation as they still contain calories and sugars which will cause weight gain when overconsumed.
