What Is It?

Dried Apricots are globally loved for their tangy-sweet flavor and chewy texture. They are packed with Vitamin A specifically beta-carotene which is essential for healthy eyes, skin and the immune system. They are also a good source of dietary fiber, potassium, iron and other antioxidants.  

Organically-grown dried apricots are usually a dull orange-brown color, and not the bright orange color associated with non-organic dried apricots that have been treated with sulfites (preservative). Dried apricots are nutritiously denser than fresh apricots.  

Nature’s Superfoods Sun-Dried Apricots are organically grown and naturally dried in the Mediterranean sun, with no added sugar, preservatives or additives.

Botanical name: Prunus armeniaca

Organic Certifications: USDA, EU

Taste/Texture: Smooth, sweet and chewy

This superfood is now available in Singapore in 140g and 420g resealable pouches.

How to Use

Eat these delicious morsels out of the bag as a wholesome snack!

Add them (whole or cut) to your salads, oatmeal, trail mix, yogurt, smoothies and granola.

Health Benefits

1. Helps Maintain Healthy Vision / Protect Eyesight

Dried apricots are rich in vitamin A (in the form of the carotenoid beta-carotene) which helps maintain good vision and overall eye health. Vitamin A, specifically beta-carotene, protects the eyes from damage caused by blue or ultra-violet light. In addition, Vitamin A reduces the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration and vision loss.

 

2. Improves Heart Health – Helps With Blood Pressure

Potassium in apricots functions to rebalance the intra- and extracellular water balance of the body and at the same time, helps in muscle relaxation, thus reducing tension in the blood vessel walls. This helps lower blood pressure. Apricots are also high in dietary fiber. Research has shown that a high-fiber diet is helpful for blood pressure as compared with a low-fiber diet.  Dietary fiber also helps to reduce the total cholesterol levels by binding to it and promoting its elimination through waste.

 

3. Maintains Digestive Health 

Being a good source of dietary fiber, especially soluble fibre, apricots play an important role in maintaining a healthy gut and improving bowel movement. Fiber also makes you feel full longer (prevents overeating).

 

4. Antioxidant Benefits

Apricots are natural sources of antioxidants (think anti-aging). When consumed daily, they can help the body to get rid of toxins by fighting free radical damage, thus reducing the risks of inflammation, premature aging and age-related diseases.

 

5. Strengthens Bones 

Apricots have good amounts of all the minerals necessary for bone growth and strength like calcium, phosphorous, manganese, iron, and copper. Furthermore, the presence of potassium in apricots aids calcium absorption in the body.

 

6. Prevents Iron-Deficiency Anemia

Apricots are high in non-heme iron content – an essential nutrient for the synthesis of red blood cells in our body, thus preventing iron-deficiency anemia, which can lead to body fatigue and general metabolic dysfunction. Furthermore, the copper and Vitamin C contents in apricots further aids iron absorption in the body.

Nutrition Info

Apricots have numerous health benefits due to good amounts of vitamins such as vitamin A, C, K, E and niacin. In addition, they are also rich in dietary fiber and minerals like potassium, copper, iron, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus.

In addition, apricots also contain phytochemicals called carotenoids. The powerful antioxidant- lycopene (which is good for eyes)- is one of the carotenoids found in apricots.
