Raisins are cholesterol free, low in sodium and virtually fat free. They provide many necessary vitamins and minerals including iron and potassium. They are 70% pure fructose, a natural form of sugar that is easily digested for quick energy and compared to other common snacks, raisins do not trigger the ‘let down’ or low energy response found a few hours later with the other snacks.
Raisin contains 5.86% dietary fiber, 59% of which is soluble fiber which has been associated with the reduction of serum cholesterol levels. They also contain propionic acid which promotes an extended shelf life because it is a good mold inhibitor in baked goods.
Raisins are not only fat and cholesterol-free, they also contribute heart-healthy components, such as fiber, potassium, and antioxidants.
