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.

“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. :)”

“I always look forward to a shipment from Nuts.com! Chia seeds for my soups and cereals, quinoa for my tabula salads! And then there are the dried fruits (cantaloupe and peaches) which are simply delicious. You folks are the greatest bar none!”

“I was just looking to buy dried pears but decided to try several things...
The jumbo Medjool Dates are creamy smooth, just as the others have mentioned...I call them "Nature's Caramel"
Turkish figs are great, sweet and not too dry. (unlike some from a local store that were like leather and not edible...)
The dried Strawberries, KIWI and cantaloupe are amazing... There is just the right amount of sugar added to make them a wonderful natural candy like treat...
Oh, and as for the pears... Just what I wanted!
Thanks for the free sample included with my order Nuts.com...

“I placed an order last night (Wed) at 9:15 PM. At 9:30PM I received a message that my order had shipped. I thought it must have been an automatic message that gets generated when the packing list and label print but figured the goods would actually ship Thursday. You can imagine my surprise when the package arrived today (Thursday) at 4:30. I can only imagine that Jeffrey packed my order and then hopped in the Fed Ex truck himself and made the deliveries in order to get it here so fast! We love your products. Dried cantalope, green bean chips, walnuts, and cashews are just a few of the snacks in this order. The kids don't even ask for cookies and other sweets! Happy Mom; Happy kids....”
