Apricots

Do you add sugar to your Dried Apricots?

No, we do not add sugar to our dried apricots. The sweetness of the apricot comes from the fruit’s natural fructose content.

Can diabetic people eat Dried Apricots?

Yes, in moderation. Dried Apricots are diabetic friendly and low in GI; however, we recommend not to consume them in excess. Please follow the serving size as per recommended on package. Due to the process of dehydration of the fruits, dried fruits are naturally higher in sugar per gram compared to fresh fruits. However, the dehydration process also makes the nutrients like fiber, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants more concentrated in dried fruits as compared to fresh fruits. Low-GI dried fruits, when eaten in moderation, can be part of a healthy diabetes diet. (https://www.ijmrhs.com/medical-research/dry-fruits-and-diabetes-mellitus.pdf)

How long can Dried Apricots be stored?

When unopened, dried apricots can be stored for as long as a year; in a cool dry place. Keeping them in the fridge is ideal due to Singapore’s hot, humid weather. If the package is opened, consume within 3 months.

Why are your Apricots dark brown in color?

Our apricots are dark in color as they are organic and sulfite-free. Organically-grown dried apricots are usually a dull orange-brown color, and not the bright orange color associated with non-organic dried apricots that have been treated with sulfites (preservative).
