Raisins Or Grapes – What’s Your Pick?
It’s crazy to think that raisins are just dried grapes with super concentrated components. Have you guys ever thought about the differences or similarities between these two delicious fruits? Here they are, just in case you were wondering.
SUGAR: When dried, the antioxidants found within grapes becomes concentrated, but unfortunately, so does the amount of sugar. Raisins are way higher in sugar at 25 grams per serving.
ANTIOXIDANTS: Raisins contain almost three times the amount of antioxidants as grapes. Antioxidants are important in promoting and maintaining good health and optimal growth, and are essential in the treatment and prevention of certain chronic diseases, especially cancers.
CALORIES: Fruits are the dream foods for dieters – they are low in calories, high in fiber, and they help prevent hunger and overeating at future meals. But in reality a half cup of raisins contains approximately 250 calories, while the same serving of grapes contains only 30 calories. For individuals who are trying to lose weight, a 200 calorie difference can make or break their goals.
Tips: If you are simply looking for a great source of dietary antioxidants, raisins are the best way to go. However, if you are looking for a healthy snack that is low in calories and sugar and can help you stick to a weight loss program, stick with grapes.
