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 the currants on Labor Day. My order was processed Tuesday and was at my door on Thursday. The currants are packaged nicely in a 5 pound bag. They are fresh tasting and much better than the ones I ordered from another online merchant. They are softer and just plain taste better. I will definitely be ordering more from Nuts.com. Communication was great. They kept me informed of every step of the ordering and shipping process. They followed up with me to make sure I am satisfied with my purchase. I feel I got the best deal possible ordering from you guys. You just can't beat the products or customer service. I would recommend Nuts.com to anyone looking for quality dried fruit. THANK YOU GUYS!!!!!!! I will be back for more.”

“Perfect, I cannot ask for a better service. Thank you so much. It came on time as promised. It is a present for a cousin in Venezuela. She is going to love it.

“Thank you my fruit arrived as scheduled. I love the box it came in. I can't wait to get started on making my christmas cakes. I know its early but I've got to make a taster. I am so glad I found your web site I have been searching for months to buy bigger quantities than those supplied by the grocery store, and I have also been told that it is only available at christmas time. In UK this fruit is available all year round so I am very happy now I have found you and I have now recommended you to a colleague at work, so hopefully she will get in touch. I am sure I will be ordering from you again, once again a very big thank you x”
