Raisins are dried grapes/currants. However, unlike fresh grapes, they indeed are rich and concentrated sources of energy, vitamins, electrolytes, and minerals. On weight per weight comparison basis, 100 g of dried grapes hold 249 calories, several times more fiber, vitamins, minerals and poly-phenol antioxidants than the fresh grapes. Raisins, however, contain fewer amounts of vitamin C, folic acid, carotenes, lutein and xanthins than fresh grapes.
They can be enjoyed as a snack, all alone without any additions.
Sprinkle over to enrich fruit salads and ice creams, desserts...etc.
Add to bakery items like chocolates, cookies, muffins, bread, puddings, biscuits, cakes, waffles...etc.
