Benefits: Apricots are a beautiful bright orange in color with a delicate, sweet flavor. Nutrients in apricots can help protect the heart and eyes, as well as provide the disease-fighting effects of fiber. The high beta-carotene and lycopene activity of apricots makes them important heart health foods. Both beta-carotene and lycopene protect LDL cholesterol from oxidation, which may help prevent heart disease.
Description & Use: Processed organic whole apricots are dried apricots of Prunus armeniaca L. variety. Apricots are prepared from clean and sun dried Malatya apricots produced by selected growers. All organic apricots are mechanically washed and inspected to remove any foreign material and metal detected for final check and shock frozen. These dried apricots are full in taste with hints of caramel and are a terrific organic alternative to the vastly recognized sulfured dried apricot as a snack food. Diced organic apricots are a preferred inclusion for baked items and energy bars as well as other manufactured food products.
