California Raisins have concentrated nutrients.
When grapes undergo the simple, sun-dried process to become raisins, some nutrients are concentrated. In particular, calcium and potassium levels increase.2
Fiber also increases.
California Raisins come by their sweetness naturally.
California Raisins contain no added sugars. In fact, raisins can proudly carry the Produce for Better Health Foundation’s Fruit & Veggies - More Matters logo because they are 100% fruit.3
California Raisins are a wise choice.
Raisins are an ideal way to achieve the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) MyPlate guidelines that recommend filling half your plate with fruits and vegetables. Additionally, the USDA's Food-A-Pedia website shows that a serving of raisins contributes no empty calories – because they contain no added sugar.4
Make the wise choice and choose all-natural, whole foods like California Raisins.
