Raisins Thompson (Local & Organic)
Raisins are a type of dried grape that are often used as a sweet and nutritious snack. They can be eaten on their own or used as an ingredient in baked goods, trail mix, and other dishes. Raisins are high in natural sugars, but they also contain a range of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can provide some potential health benefits.
Some potential health benefits of raisins include:
Rich in fiber: raisins are a good source of fiber, which can help to promote healthy digestion, lower cholesterol levels, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.
Raisins are high in antioxidants, which can help protect against oxidative damage and reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease.
Source of vitamins and minerals: Raisins are a good source of vitamins and minerals, including iron, potassium, calcium, and vitamin B6.
May aid in weight management: While raisins are high in natural sugars, they are also high in fiber, which can help to keep you feeling full and satisfied for longer periods of time.
May improve bone health: Raisins are a good source of calcium and boron, two minerals that are important for bone health.
It is important to note that raisins are high in natural sugars and calories, so they should be consumed in moderation if you are trying to manage your weight or blood sugar levels.
