Dried and Freeze-Dried Fruits

Because they are so concentrated, dried fruits, measured by volume, have a higher content of polyphenol antioxidants and more fiberdried and freeze-dried fruits than their fresh-fruit counterparts. You can now find almost every variety of fruit, from cherries to pears, in dried form. The most nutrient-dense dried fruits are apricots, figs, prunes, raisins, dates, strawberries, blueberries, and cranberries. Just be sure the ones you buy are not sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup. And try to find organic brands, because whatever pesticides the fruit might have been sprayed with will also be concentrated when it is dried.
