Dried fruit is called the fruit from which the majority of its original water content has been removed either naturally, drying under the sun, or artificially using special dryers.
Dried fruits were significant part of the ancient Greeks’ diet. The most common dried fruits in the greek market nowadays are raisins, plums, apricots and figs.
Dried fruits maintain most of their nutrients as due to lack of water they are preserved for a long period of time. Ready to eat, easy to take away at work, shopping and travel, dried fruits can replace sweets and make their nutrients available even out of season.
