Dried fruit is a popular staple in the world’s poorest countries, especially in developing countries, but the fiber that goes into making dried fruit is also an important source of nutrition and energy.
According to the World Health Organization, the fiber in dried fruit provides almost two-thirds of the calories of a serving of fruit.
According the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, dried fruit has a caloric value of roughly 200 calories per 100 grams, or about half the calories in a can of fruit juice.
Dried fruits also contain vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and fiber.
They are rich in vitamin B12 and folate, and are low in fat and cholesterol.
