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."

“You guys are soooo funny. I have already bookmarked you so that I can order my currants from you all the time. I use them to bake Christmas fruit cakes every year, and I can't find them anywhere here in Georgia. I used to live in Ft Lauderdale, Fl. where they were much easier to find. They are a great price and it is a pleasure to shop with you. By the way, is there any way I can sell my cakes through you every year?”

“When living in England, I used to make delicious fruit cakes, and found the ingredients easy to find. However while I have been living in Florida, I have found that unless it is Christmas time, then such as currants, glazed red cherries, or glazed mixed peel are impossible to find!! My husband volunteered me to make an English-style wedding cake for our friends, and I have had a nightmare ever since finding the ingredients. Thank goodness he stumbled across Nuts Online, after spending numerous days scouring the internet. I found exactly what I wished for, and was advised they would be delivered five days later, of which they were. I could not believe the utmost freshness and quality that was contained in the packages, the best quality I have ever had. So much so, I am immediately ordering some more fruit, and I can be rest assured this is a very very reliable company to deal with. Thankyou!!”

“My order for dried currants arrived very quickly and was packed in a safe, yet environmentally friendly manner. Guess I'd better get busy making the family recipe for Welsh cookies that I needed them for. Thanks so much!”

“Thanks so much for the order. I have ordered several things from you in the last couple of months to make my fruitcake wedding cake. Everything has come on time and has been in excellent condition. I will certainly do all my fruit and nut ordering from you in the future. Thanks”

“I was grateful to find a place to purchase currants. The only time I can find them in the grocery store is at Christmas and that's still hit and miss. They were shipped quick. I look forward to making my grandmother's "secret recipe" cookies for my family this Easter...currants are needed. :)”

“Terrific products, reasonable prices, great website, best and most responsive shipping times available. We love dried currants, which used to be widely available but are now nearly impossible to find in the usual retail food stores. Nuts Online always has them! ”
