Health Tips

1. Raisins are the original candy- nature's candy. They are one of the most nutritious dried fruits in the world. Raisins are cholesterol-free, low in sodium and totally fat-free. They provide many necessary vitamins and minerals, including iron, potassium, calcium and certain B vitamins. Raisins are a good source of fiber and rich in antioxidants. Raisins are 70% pure fructose (a natural form of sugar) which is easily digested for quick energy.

2. New research indicates that subjects can lower their cholesterol level when naturally fiber-rich sun-dried raisins are included in a Mediterranean-style diet.The new research (published in the February issue of the American Heart Association's "Circulation") studied the effects of sun-dried raisins in a diet high in fiber and low in saturated fats on adults with elevated cholesterol levels. The study revealed that subjects who followed the diet lowered their levels of LDL ("bad" cholesterol) and total cholesterol -- reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Over 50 percent of the adult population in the United States today suffer from elevated cholesterol levels (above 200 mg/dl).

3."We found a significant, positive correlation between consuming sun-dried raisins and a change in some colon cancer risk factors," said Gene Spiller, Ph.D., lead study author and researcher at the Health Research and Studies Center in Los Altos, California. "Eating as little as two servings of raisins resulted in beneficial changes in colon function that may help combat the estimated 130,000 new cases of colorectal cancer expected to be diagnosed this year."

“I ordered Raisins, prunes, and currants for my West Indian fruit cake. I was totally satisfied with my order. I have never seen, or tasted, such moist and succulent dried fruit in my life.
From now on I will be shopping at Nuts.com.”

“Great fresh products at reasonable prices. This time I ordered my usual curry cashews, but added a few newbies like Dried Currants, Veggies chips (which I finished within 1 hour of opening the box!), and Hibiscus flowers. The shipping is always surprisingly fast.”

“Welsh Currant Bread comes down from many generations of our family and is a Christmas tradition. Every year I go from store to store trying to find the currants with no luck until it's too late - this year I found them at Whole Foods but am glad to find out I can order direct from you. Why aren't they in stores year-round?”

“I am so happy to finally have currants in the pantry for my special recipes. They arrived awesomely packaged and they were fresh and plump. Nuts.com, thanks for your excellent customer service.”

“Nuts.com -- you guys are AMAZING!! I placed an order online for two items late Sunday evening and I received that order in my hands Tuesday afternoon. THAT was super FAST!! And the order came complete with an additional gift item. Such a classy touch! I'm a very big fan now of your website company and will place online orders with you again....soon!! Many thanks.”

“My grandmother's applesauce cake recipe requires currants, it's just not the same without them. I can only find currants in this area right before Christmas, if I'm lucky. But I like to make the cake other times of the year. By chance I came upon your website and I am so glad!! My currants came in record time and they are very fresh. When I get ready to make my fruit cakes, I will be back to order again as it is hard to find the fruit that I need. My thanks to the nuts!!”

, Hope Hull, Alabama November 16, 2013

“Thank you all at Nuts.com your service was excellent and the dried fruit was with me in no time at all. I can now make my English rich fruit cake with the correct ingredients this year. Currants are very hard to find here in Florida! Thanks All.”

, Davenport, Florida November 7, 2013

“Receiving my box of treats from Nuts.com made my day. If the design on the box doesn't make you smile nothing will! I bought currants so I could make English Christmas puddings. When I've bought these in the past from supermarkets the currants have always been totally dried out but the currants from nuts.com are plump and moist - far superior to the supermarket varieties. I highly recommend them - and nuts.com.”

“I've ordered from you three times now and every single time the fruit is perfect and delicious, thank you x”

, ormond beach, florida October 17, 2013

“Local stores have very little stock of candied fruit and currents needed for older, traditional recipes for fruitcake and mincemeat. Nuts did have what I needed to finish my mincemeat and get it marinating! 3 day shipping is just fine for these things.”

, New Castle, Kentucky September 25, 2013

“My currants arrived today -- three days before I expected them! Loved your box and the terrific service. I'll be back.”
