How to store raisins

Dried fruits are best kept somewhere cool and dry. Once you’ve opened the pack, put your dried fruit into a sealed, airtight container.

If you want it to last even longer, dried fruit is perfectly happy in the freezer. Just put the fruit in a sealed freezer bag first.

Good-for-you facts

Dried fruit makes a great lower calorie snack when you’re in need of a sugar hit. It also comes with a range of nutritional benefits not offered by the average biscuit or chocolate bar. Organic raisins are a rich source of fibre. They also contain bags of antioxidants, calcium, iron, and the electrolyte potassium, which is really good for keeping your heart healthy.

About ProNatura

We love ProNatura. This French NGO co-ordinates production and provides support for hundreds of small-scale, organic, Fairtrade farmers in countries all over the world. The project is as ambitious as it is admirable.

We’re just as confident in ProNatura’s quality as we are in their ethical credentials. Their fresh fruit has been such a smash hit at Riverford that Guy even went out to Togo and the Dominican Republic to meet the growers for himself (see more in this video). So, it was no surprise to us when ProNatura’s dried fruit came out best for flavour and texture in our tests. Moist and tasty, these dried fruits are nothing like the desiccated specimens that you might have regarded with dread in your local health food shop.
