Are dried apricots healthy?
Dried apricots have many important nutrients and are a real all-rounder in the kitchen. But are dried apricots healthy?
The sun-drying of our apricots, which removes the water, logically increases the concentration of minerals in the fruit. This means that the nutrient content of dried apricots is about five times higher compared to a fresh apricot. Our dried apricots contain large amounts of important vitamins and minerals. The most important vitamins are vitamin A, B5 and C. Vitamin A strengthens our bones, eyes, skin and mucous membranes. The amount of vitamin A in dried apricots is even so high that three dried apricots almost cover your daily vitamin A requirement. While vitamin B5 stimulates the metabolism and promotes concentration, vitamin C ensures a strong immune system. The two most important minerals in dried apricots are potassium and iron. The potassium in dried apricots regulates blood pressure and cell growth and promotes muscle development. Very few foods contain as much potassium as dried apricots. The iron in the dried apricots againrum ensures proper energy metabolism and oxygen transport and is therefore important for the immune system.
