Health Benefits of Dried Cantaloupe
1) Antioxidant Powerhouse: Dried cantaloupe is a healthy snack that is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. The antioxidants in a serving of dried cantaloupe helps the body neutralize free radicals that can damage healthy cells. Antioxidants are associated with the prevention of chronic conditions like heart disease and stroke. Dried cantaloupe is also rich in beta-carotene, a carotenoid that does much more than just give the fruit its vibrant orange color.
2) Healthy Eyes and Skin: Beta-carotene converts to vitamin A in the body and is an important nutrient for skin and eye health. Consuming adequate levels of beta-carotene improves skin tone and texture, to help maintain a youthful glow. Research indicates that this carotenoid also protects the skin from sun damage by reducing the harmful effects of UV rays. Beta-carotene also helps prevent cataracts and reduces the risk for macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in older adults.
3) Heart Health: Bananas aren’t the only good source of potassium! Dried cantaloupe is an excellent way to increase your intake of this essential mineral. Potassium regulates heartbeat, reduces high blood pressure, and may lower the risk for cardiovascular disease. It is especially important for keeping sodium levels in check. Dried cantaloupe is also high in B-complex vitamins, particularly folate. Also referred to as folic acid or vitamin B-12, folate reduces hardening of the arteries, a precursor to heart disease.

“The dried cantaloupe is truly the most delightful dried fruit I have ever eaten. It's perfectly dried and the flavor is heavenly. Hope I don't eat the whole bag at once. ”

“I was buying a fruit & nut medley from a local warehouse thinking it was good dried fruit. Boy was I wrong!
For my first order I bought 1lb each of their dried strawberries, cantaloupe, royal nut mix and organic steel cut oats. This by far is the BEST I ever had!
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR, if your not a risk taker then try their samples - you will not be disappointed!”

“Surprisingly the dried cantaloupe is absolutely delicious, it is sour, sweet and chewy, it is among my 10 best of all times.”

“Re: Dried Cantaloupe Wedges
Folks, if you like cantaloupe this is some good stuff. They are full of flavor and a perfect snack item.
There IS a drawback to them however - while eating them it is extremely difficult to stop...
might just possibly be the reason I buy them often. :)”

“We really enjoy this fruit but it's extremely sweet, so when we take a bit of it we mask the sweetness with one of your great tasting banana chips.
We will keep buying and the health benefits are great!
