According to a recent study, people who eat dried fruit are generally healthier than those who don’t.

The study used data on 25.590 participants aged 20+ and found that on average, people who reported eating dried fruit, had healthier diets than those who did not. They also tended to have lower body-mass index, waist circumference, and blood pressure.

Additionally, the researchers found that on days the participants ate dried fruit, they consumed more total carbohydrates, dietary fiber, potassium, polyunsaturated fat, but also more calories.

Researchers believe that dried fruit can be a great choice for a nutritious snack, if you choose the unsweetened option with no sugar added, keeping in mind the portion size (as dried fruits are a calorie bomb). In this way dried fruit could be a way to boost overall fruit intake in those who aren’t eating the recommended amounts of fruits.
